    It is with great pride that we welcome you to Brandt Angus Farm Production Sale. Ever since its inception we have provided Veterinary Services to Brandt Angus Farm. The herd is very well-maintained from a herd health status, and the family has always done whatever is needed to provide a quality product to Angus Breeders from all over the United States. The vaccination schedule that has been done on the herd is as follows. At spring turn out all calves were vaccinated for 7-way Blackleg, BVD (MLV Types I and II), IBR, PI3, BRSV and Pinkeye. Two weeks prior to weaning all calves were vaccinated for 7-way Blackleg, Haemophilus somnus, BVD (MLV Types I and II), IBR, PI3, BRSV, Manheimia hemolytica, Pasteurella multocida and poured for internal and external parasites with Cydectin. At weaning all calves were boostered for BVD (MLV Types I and II), IBR, PI3, BRSV, Manheimia hemolytica and Pasteurella multocida. All females have been vaccinated for Brucellosis. The bred females were vaccinated for BVD (Killed Types I and II), IBR, PI3, BRSV, Vibrio and Lepto at the time of pregnancy testing. Because the cows were ultrasound-ed late in the summer they were not given a vaccination to prevent scours in the calves. We do recommend you visit with your Veterinarian about what would work best in your herd. The cows are treated yearly with Cydectin for internal and external parasites. The sale females were ultrasounded for pregnancy on 7-21, 7-22 and 7-23-2011. While no technology is 100%, we tried to obtain an exact measurement of each fetus to obtain as accurate of a measurement of the stage of gestation as possible. The stage of gestation was determined by measuring on the following: crown-rump length, trunk width, head width or eye width. A picture of each pregnancy will be available for viewing the day of the sale. Health papers for intra-state and interstate shipment will be available on the day of the sale. In addition, we can assist buyers with international shipments as well. If you have any questions about the health program in place please feel free to ask one of our Veterinary staff who will be present at the sale. Thank-youScott Shuey MS, DVMSouthern Hills Veterinary Services Inc.
