Cattle rancher Dennis Carlton, of Carlton and Carlton Ranch, is a seventh generation cattleman who owns and operates two ranches in the southeastern U.S., encompassing more than 33,000 acres. The health of the cow herd is extremely important since Carlton retains ownership of the calves, which are shipped to and finished at a feedyard in Hereford, TX.
“It must be an inherited trait, because I have never wanted to do anything else but be in the cattle business,” Carlton says of his love of ranching. “It gives us the opportunity as a family to be able to work together, make a living and be able to enjoy each other’s company at the same time.”
Carlton vaccinates his cow herd with Triangle®, a killed-virus vaccine from Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. TRIANGLE has protected his cow herd from respiratory and reproductive diseases for years.
“We use TRIANGLE on 100 percent of cow herd because it is safe and effective and it has done a good job,” Carlton says.. Killed vaccines, like TRIANGLE, fill the need for vaccination in herds with or without an undefined calving seasons without any risks associated with pregnancy.
Dr. Robert Guckich, DVM, is Carlton’s veterinarian. “I like TRIANGLE because it is a very smooth product with a low dosage, and we can give it subcutaneously, which follows the BQA (Beef Quality Assurance) recommendations for vaccines,” Dr. Guckich adds. “With TRIANGLE, we are doing a very good job of protecting those cattle against abortive diseases and getting good passive transfer to the calf side.”
