Control of bovine leukosis virus in a dairy herd by a change in dehorning

Control of bovine leukosis virus in a dairy herd by a change in dehorning

Canadian Journal of Veterinary Research 51(4): 542-544

Following the demonstration that bovine leukosis virus was transmitted in calves by gouge dehorning, electrical dehorning at a younger age was implemented in a commercial Holstein herd. Subsequently, annual testing of the herd revealed a decline in the prevalence of bovine leukosis virus antibodies as older cattle dehorned by the former method were replaced by younger cattle dehorned by the latter method.
