Calf Scours (Viruses) Farming Note

55% of calf mortality from scours is due to Rotavirus and Corona virus. It is emotionally and economically draining trying to nurse scouring calves back to health, whilst losses can range from £33 to £165 per exposed calf.

Implementing simple management procedures can significantly reduce the incidence of viral calf scours on your farm.

This Farming Note covers:

  • Prevention
  • Testing
  • Treatment of viral calf scours

Issued March 2006.
