Modules

Modules can be taken in any order

Module 1: Optimizing Immunity

Duration: 2 Hours CE CREDITS: 2.0

Description:
Module 1 explores the pathophysiology of BRDC and the immune response. It discusses management techniques to help you work with your clients to implement proper biosecurity practices and herd-level immunomodulation.

Module 2: Mitigating BRDC via Calving Management

Duration: 1 Hours CE CREDITS: 1.0

Description:
Preventing a disease is always preferable to treating it. With that in mind, this module was designed with a focus on eliminating problem animals from the herd to lower instances of dystocia and failure of passive transfer. Teaching producers how to optimize their numbers of healthy calves ultimately leads to fewer instances of BRDC.
