Thanks for the responses everyone.  We got the angus pair when they where weaned and owner said they where up to date on there vaccines so we have only been pouring and worming but will talk to vet about that . Also the charolais one we got as a yearling and she was also up to date but will ask vet about her too. The heifers do have access to about 2 acres of open pasture all the time just with Temps heating up here in iowa everything is all sloppy but we always keep a couple corn stalk bales where we notice they like to lay Down at. I also went to my local vet supply store and they don't carry the purina mineral tub but they had their own calving tub which he said peopke have been very happy with it so got that. What's the price on a regular tub this one was $120 for a 200# tub

Yes going to visit with my vet tomorrow and see what he says. He's not the best at answering questions like this that's why I wanted to start doing my own research.  I appreciate everyone's comments

Yeah all this just gets confusing especially for a newbie like myself . I have heard some people say you can't vaccine newborn calves and some say you need to right when they are born

Hey there checking in from iowa. We are new to the cattle world and about a year and a half ago we got our first pair of black angus heifers then a little later on we decided to get ourself a charolais Heifer.  They where all ai last June and July and will start to calve mid March. Question is what's everyone doing as far as vaccines for the calves, like I said we are totally new to this but wanna get knowledge needed to have healthy calves . I will post pictures of our girls .

Also what's does everyone think of the overall condition of our girls. Have had some people say they might be too big or fat . For feed they are on free access of grass Alfalfa hay and about 5 pounds of ddgs each a day but starting to work the ddgs down till after they calve . And have a mineral block out for them but also going to be getting the purina wind and rain tub for them here shortly
