New calculator illustrates on-farm cost of livestock diseases

A new cost calculator model is now available to help the livestock industry put a price tag on disease outbreaks. The program, built in an Excel spreadsheet, will calculate the financial impact of moderate or severe outbreaks of specific diseases on beef, veal, sheep, goat and rabbit farms. This includes Bovine Viral Diarrhea (BVD) in cattle, Mycoplasmosis in veal, Q Fever in sheep, Caprine Arthritis and Encephalitis (CAE) in goats and Pasteurellosis in rabbits.
