Health Issue/DiseaseSigns and symptomsTreatmentPreventionImpact
Eg Milk FeverUsually associated with thin cows, sick, bad weather and low feeding levels. Weak cows, stumbling, disorientation, reduced milk production, dry nose, down, S bend in neck, constipated, death.Clinical cases receive 500ml CalPro375 subcutaneously and 500ml GluCalPhos IV as well as a starter drench.
All metabolic cows are preferentially fed separately or in the colostrum mob.
We dust for dry cows from 5 weeks pre-calving at
50-100g/cow with causmag and include MgSO4 at 50g/cow on hay if conditions are bad. Colostrum cows receive 0.5-2L of Starterplus the day they calve depending on age and body condition. Milking animals are drenched with 25g/cow for the spring.
Reduced milk production; increased risk of RFM, metritis & mastitis; possible difficulty calving (so may lose calf & cow) & prolapses - so less income from milk, treatment costs, possible death of cow (& calf), increased chance of culling.

All metabolic cows are preferentially fed separately or in the colostrums mob.
We dust for dry cows from 5 weeks pre-calving at
50-100g/cow with causal and include MgSO4 at 50g/cow on hay if conditions are bad. Colostrums cows receive 0.5-2L of Starter plus the day they calve depending on age and body condition. Milking animals are drenched with 25g/cow for the spring.
Reduced milk production; increased risk of RFM, merits & mastitis; possible difficulty calving (so may lose calf & cow) & prolepses - so less income from milk, treatment costs, possible death of cow (& calf), increased chance of culling.
 MastitisThese include increased swelling in the breast of animals as well as increased soreness. On the other hand, warmth and red color appears on breast. Increased pain and burning feels over breast. Leaning on the animals in warm water tub. Using pain killer for excessive pain in the breast. Drinking more water for the animals.  The babies have to feed up in different positions for full latching during feeding As suggested by Pathak, Shetty & Kalra, 2016, ensuring that the baby is fully drained one breast and then switch it to the other breast may be useful in this regard. Providing The animals with  an improved range of diet is also useful for achieving more prevention by the firm for the different health issues for the animals.

This causes production of discarded milk after arising this disease in the animals. On the other hand, this also causes lessees production of milk in the animals. 
Calving disorder This causes limping in the animals. On the other hand, this also causes stiffness in the hip of the animals and increased pain in the hip. The thigh and knees are also affected by this disease. Therefore, limitation occurs in the motion. 

 Providing the animals with adequate diet and increased amount of water. Keeping the animals in normal temperature and treating them with anti inflammatory agents.

Calving the animals in dry environment. The animals have to shift over the well bedded shelter for taking rest. Providing the animal’s effective amount of colostrums.

 
This causes increased disgust and pain in the motion. On the other hand, the animals show lesser interest in breeding and also show lesser interest over caring the cubs.  
LamenessThese causes increase toe abscesses in the cattle. On the other hand, this only occurs in the young cattle’s. This also causes injury in the hoof of the cattle. Moreover, this causes pain in the hoof. 

Using pain killer for reducing the pain. On the other hand, this is also important for the animals to using the non infectious medicine for get rid of the issues. 

Reducing the incident of the foot sore cows and the lame cows. As opined by Lohmüller (2016), this also required reducing the amount of mud on the udders of the cows. 

This causes a reduced amount of milk production because of uncomforted in the health. On the other hand, the animals also become weaker after arising the disease. 
Calf ScoursThe animal can produce watery stool and the colour of the stool may be green or yellow in colour. As suggested by Jonker (2017), the animals become very weak after arising such disease, The animals suffers from depression after arising such diseases. The appearance of sunken eyes occurs in the animals. 

The oral administration is required for finding out the effective treatment of the animal. On the other hand, intravenous administration is also required by the animals for the disease. The animals required increased rates of nutritional support for overcoming the disease. Quality shedding, bedding and shelters are required for the animals regarding increased treatment approach of the animals.  

Providing the newborns effective amount of colostrums. On the other hand, consideration of the vaccination approaches is also required by the animals in this regard. Maintaining a clear and infection free area for calving the animals are also required by the animals. Proving the animals with adequate protein as well as increased aspects of dietary food is also useful for the animals in this regards. This makes the animals weaker and thus they produce less milk. This also causes decreased health for the animals.
Nitrate PoisoningThis includes rapid heartbeat in the animals. On the other hand, the heartbeat becomes weaker in the animals. As suggested by Hewko, S. J., & Cummings (2016), the body temperature also increases sometimes for the animals. Increased abdominal pain is occurs in the animals. On the other hand, the gastric problems are also occurs in the animals.

Injecting the animals with 1% ethylene blue. As mentioned by Barkema et al. (2015), on the other hand, rumen ravage may be used for the animals in this regards. Using antibiotics also may be useful for the animals with more efficacies. 

Keep the animals in the infection free zone in order to keep them safer from the nitrate poisoning. On the other hand, testing the meals and the water is also required to avoid such disease. Providing the animals with the effective diet plan and increase amount of water is also useful to prevent the disease before their arrivals in the animal health. This causes increased illness in the animals. On the other hand, this also causes lack of oxygen in the body tissues of the animal. This causes less production of milk in the animals.

Animal Health Review
  1. Analyse your results against your targets.
              The above analysis states that we almost fulfilled our target as per the Key Performance Indicator. On the other hand, we fulfilled our target for Lame disease as well as the Milk fever disease. The calving disease target was also fulfilled by us. On the other hand, The deaths of the animals were stopped about 1% following the KPI. Moreover, the Mastitis, RFM and the Abortion were managed almost in successive way regarding the KPI. 
  1. What animal health results would you like to improve upon and how do you plan to achieve these improvements?
             The Mastitis, RFM and Abortion I will like to improve. This can be achieved by us by achieving and implementing the key performance indicators for the disease such as calving them in to dry environment, as well as quality bedding and shelter for the animals. On the other hand, effective vaccination program and prevention approach is also useful for avoiding the problem of such disease of the animals. Increased approach for the knowledge and awareness for the disease is helpful for gaining more success in this purpose by us.
