Color Descriptions

  Many members have asked how to describe the color choice for their Longhorns. When you are registering on HORNS, you will see a question mark (?) beside the color description.  Once you click on the question mark (?) it will give you the acceptable words that can be used to describe the color for your Longhorn.  We recommend that you do not become too detailed in your information but rather keep it simple.

An example would be; white body with red specks, brown with white muzzle and white spots on body.

Using the diagnostic lab in summer pneumonia cases part 1: Reasons and tissue sampling

By Russ Daly, SDSU iGrow July 28, 2015 | 11:04 am EDT (Cattle Network)
Pneumonia in pre-weaned beef calves continues to vex cattle producers and veterinarians every summer. Because it occurs in well-vaccinated and managed herds as well as in minimally managed herds, and because of its unpredictable nature, summer pneumonia can be frustrating.

Veterinarians have some tools at their disposal when it’s warranted to investigate these outbreaks more closely. It’s a good idea for cattle producers to know how some of those tools work and whether they make sense for their situation.

In particular, the tools we’re talking about are diagnostic techniques to identify bacteria and viruses that may be contributing to a summer pneumonia outbreak. Veterinarians have close connections with veterinary diagnostic labs, such as the SDSU ADRDL (contact info below), that can employ these techniques.


Part 2 coming in next week's E-Trails!
