The problem of diarrhea in dairy calves was studied using samples of dairy farms from two counties in California. Farmers were interviewed concerning (1) the nature and extent of the problem in calves on their farms, and (2) management practices. Survey findings showed differences between the two counties regarding causes of diarrhea; age at onset; and management practices—particularly with respect to vaccination, calving sites, and treatment.
