Pinkeye is an infection caused by irritation of the eye; find ways to manage pinkeye this summer in your beef herd.
Pinkeye is impacting the cattle industry this summer, thanks to increased rainfall, says Clint Thompson, a professor at the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences at the University of Georgia.
Pinkeye is the redness and swelling of the conjunctiva, the mucous membrane that lines the eyelid and eye surface.
