Russ we started using scourgaurd after when we broke the first year. Second year another train wreck. We switched to guardian things got better but still alot of sick calves till we put the biomoss tubs out. I'm pretty sure we get rota/caronavirus and not an ecoli scours. A couple years of fighting it and I figured out the source. There is a boggy creek that runs through the pasture we bunch new pairs in. There is a few acres of grass on the other side. The cows would wade through the muck to graze the other side and come back and their bags were covered in mud, the calves sucked and got sick. We run a hot wire across there now so they can't get in there and it has helped a lot.
