Description

There is more to sudden death in cattle than snake bite in summer and pulpy kidney in winter.
In fact, a detailed and systematic work up through all the possible causes of sudden death will likely result in a substantially longer list than you might routinely generate. In this podcast we will direct our diagnostic work up by categorizing simple parameters including the weather conditions, the presence or absence of signs of a struggle, and the gross appearance of the cadaver before we launch into a post-mortem.

Objectives

Involvement in this course will expand your understanding and knowledge in:
1. The full range of possible causes of sudden death in cattle
2. The importance of grazing of management in the prevention of losses due to sudden death
3. Animal health risk management strategies to reduce the likelihood of losses due to sudden death.
