Wolanyk, Alison M.; Bishop, Natalie
This monograph, designed to help secondary students recognize symptoms of major dairy cattle diseases, stresses the need for preventative management practices and cooperation between the dairy farmer and the veterinarian. The first of three parts, The Healthy Animal, is divided into five units: body parts, vital signs, excretions, behavior, and reproductive characteristics. Part 2, Disease and Its Prevention, contains two units: the nature of disease and preventative management practices. The final part, Identifying and Treating Diseases, provides the following nine units: treating the diseased animal, reproductive diseases, mammary diseases, digestive diseases, respiratory diseases, structural diseases, other diseases, parasites, and calf diseases. Each part of the monograph is preceded by a vocabulary list. (LRA)
