Western Canadian Animal Health Network Request

I have been asked to help out on the Western Canadian Animal Health Network and am gathering info from veterinary teams on their experience with:


1) preg check this year -reports I’ve heard have been brutal with high open rates anywhere from 15-50%!

2) Any manheimia pneumonia in cows or replacement heifers?

3) long shot for MB perhaps relative to AB and SK but any reports on congestive heart failure? Reports in AB of more cases in non-typical animals.

4) Any new and/or notable trends to report for MB?


I’d very much appreciate you sharing with your networks. If folks could give me their update in any format that works they can reach me by:

Phone or text: 1-204-264-0294

Email: matchison@mbbeef.ca


Reports will remain anonymous but I can identify the region of MB if the person reporting thinks it’s important information.


I appreciate your help!
