2019-2020 ICA Sanctioned Preconditioned Sales

The Iowa Veterinary Medical Association, in cooperation with the Iowa Cattlemen's Association, initiated and has continually updated the Iowa Preconditioning Calf Program. The program has withstood the test of time and is the gold standard for such programs. 

The preconditioning program occurs in a series of steps. Calves are vaccinated for IBR, BVD, BRSV, PI-3, seven-way Clostridia, Mannheimia haemolytica and Histophilus somni. They are treated for internal and external parasites and must be castrated and dehorned, if appropriate. Optional treatments include vaccination for Pasteurella multocida, other diseases and implanted with a growth promotant. All vaccinations and health procedures must be performed by a veterinarian.
