Extension Calling: advice for the farm, garden, and home

Apr 5, 2024

Quickly remove all flood debris, including poisonous plants, from fields.  Vaccinate all livestock, including horses, exposed to flooded areas during or immediately after the flood.  Check with your veterinarian about which clostridial and tetanus vaccines to use for your animals and if you will need boosters. Closely inspect all livestock that were exposed to flooded areas for injuries.  Open wounds need a tetanus antitoxin.  Always follow label directions.
