Bovine Surveillance Project on Calf Health

The Calf Health Surveillance project is still accepting calves for post-mortem or samples from calves posted on the farm and questionnaires from all commodities (dairy, cow-calf and veal).

The Calf project requires a PID (Premise Identification number) on the special project AHL submission form and a Questionnaire completed with each calf owner (once per 12 months, not necessary to do twice if a 2nd calf is also submitted from the same farm).   We want calves with all problems leading to mortality (died or euth’d)  – not just Salmonella suspects.

Questions?  For more information, contact Dr. Ann Godkin at  or by phone at 519-846-3409 (office) or  519-835- 5981 (cell).
