Abstract

Managing newly received cattle presents challenges from both a nutritional and health standpoint; however, information about pre-arrival management of incoming feeder cattle has become increasingly available and can be utilized to refine arrival processing protocols. Previous management, nutrition and vaccination history impacts newly arrived cattle’s capabilities of coping with the stress associated with feedlot entry. Utilizing the available information to more precisely identify the diseaserisk of incoming groups of cattle will assist in determining expected investments in disease prevention and intervention as well as the associated labor involved.
