Tick-borne fever a precursor to bovine papular stomatitis.
On farm calls in County Cork a farmer informed me that several farmers have lost weanling calves to Bovine Papular Stomatitis. This virus results in warts on the weanling calves. The calves stop eating and eventually die. Tick-borne fever is a precursor to the previous disease described. Farmers have been recommended to treat calves at 3 week intervals to prevent the tick-borne fever.
