This workshop will cover the common vaccines utilized by beef producers in the region.  We will discuss the different types of vaccines, different vaccination protocols, when to vaccinate your cattle (and when not to vaccinate), and some basic management practices that should be employed to complement your vaccination protocol.

Also to be discussed in this workshop are various herd health topics related to beef cattle management.  These will include calving season and how to prepare yourself and your cows for calving, body condition scoring your cattle, parasite management, and some common ailments seen in beef cows and calves. Our guest speaker is New Hampshire native Dr. Nate Harvey, Assistant State Veterinarian from the New Hampshire Department of Agriculture, Markets, and Food.

This will be an outdoor workshop, so dress appropriately for cold weather!
