The past week has been near perfect conditions for a scours outbreak. After a warm, sunny beginning of spring, last week we had rain everyday with several days highs in the 50's. Very cool and damp for the past 8-10 days. After only losing a few calves and feeling pretty confident, we've lost 6 calves in the past 4 days, 4 of which we had treated either once or twice. So I think that makes 9 total calves (maybe 10) to date that we've lost due to scours.
