Store your vaccines properly
Beef producers spend thousands of dollars on vaccines for calves, replacement heifers and adult cows and bulls. Each vaccine can cost over $3 per head, and if stored improperly, can be rendered useless. Producers cannot afford to overlook the importance proper storage plays in their herd health, according to the Oklahoma Farm Report.
"Most biological products should be stored under refrigeration at 35 to 45 F unless the nature of the product makes storing at a different temperature advisable,” says Glenn Selk, animal scientist emeritus at Oklahoma State University. “Read the insert or box label carefully to discover the recommended storage temperature. If vaccines are not stored within this temperature range, efficacy to the calf can and will be reduced.”
