Calf Scours

Calf scours is the most common symptom of illness in young calves and is usually a problem in the first month of life. Although more common in hand-reared calves, it can also occur in calves which are being suckled by their mothers.


This Department of Primary Industry Fact Sheet will summarise the causes of calf scours and outline our recommended treatment options.
