On today's episode, John Ratzenberger sits down with Merck's Dr. Grant Crawford to discuss how all grazing cattle have the potential to be infected by internal parasites, or worms.  These worms can limit growth, reproduction, and milk production of cattle and can cause an increase in sickness.  In fact, dewormers have the biggest economic impact of all animal health products in the cow/calf and stocker segments of the beef industry and the second-biggest impact in the feedlot segment.  Join us for this week's episode of Nutra Blend's Animal Agriculture podcast!
