Respiratory diseases in calves. An economic analysis

Respiratory diseases in calves. An economic analysis

Nordisk Veterinaermedicin 29(12): 513-528

A number of economic parameters are included in a disease model (respiratory disease, RD) based on treatment or non-treatment of RD, death, survival, cattle sold and cattle remaining: income sources (sale price at the start and end of a six-month trial period), cost (expenses for RD-free calves, feeding, labour, housing, capital interest, base price), and costs in connexion with RD treatment. The rate of RD in calves from birth to 6 months was 23% and the mortality rate 9%.
