AbstractInfectious Bovine Keratoconjunctivitis (IBK) is a problematic recurring disease for cow-calf producers. The IBK lesions have been associated with a 7-14 kg decrease in weaning weight compared with calves with no recognized IBK lesions. Given the impact of IBK on production, it is not unexpected that producers are interested in preventing IBK. Preventive practices recommended are often impractical and there is little evidence that vaccines are effective.
