Be vigilant to catch foot rot early

Foot rot is not uncommon for ranchers and feedlot owners. The disease is dependent on the weather and soil moisture, and though it can’t be completely prevented, it can be decreased and treated. The stereotypical wet season of spring can make cattle stand in mud and soggy pasture, exposing their hooves to the bacteria that cause foot rot. During summer, unique circumstances can make cattle more prone to foot rot, including hot cattle standing in ponds for longer periods of time to cool off. BEEF Magazine
