Contributor(s): Dick Sibley, Tim Potter

  • In fact BVDv has an affinity for the reproductive system, causing infertility, abortion and deformities in calves from infected adult cows, and respiratory disease in young calves.
  • BVDv has significant effects on the immune system, predisposing infected animals to other diseases.
