    Hi. How long does lung worm survive on a pasture after cattle have been removed? Have a field which always makes them cough, but giving it a rest now but will need it soon in the next few weeks. Also, someone told me the lung worms can survive in water troughs? Any truth in that?

    Calf vaccine

    Are they covered straight away with rispoval 4? I'm willing to give it a go with next batch. Would you vaccinate straight off the trailer or leave them a few days to settle in. Sheds not bad, not perfect but they are what they are.

    Rearing calves on milk

    I'd probably just give it enough for 100 kg calf. It wont weigh that, but better to give them more than less
