57% of weaning calf mortality due to calf diarrhea

Calf Diarrhea or Scours is a significant problem for producers raising calves in beef or dairy operations. According to the National Animal Health System, over half (56.5%) of pre-weaned calf death in dairy operations is due to Scours.

Like Bovine Respiratory Disease, Scours can be the result of multiple infectious organisms contributing to disease.  This makes detecting and targeting the enteric pathogens present in your herd critical to limiting their impact. 

57% of weaning calf mortality due to calf Scours

Rotavirus and Coronavirus are common viruses associated with outbreaks of calf diarrhea.  Enteric disease can also be caused by parasites like Cryptosporidium or bacteria such as Escherichia coli.  Some bacteria, like Salmonella have many different serotypes like Dublin, Heidelberg, and Newport. Others like Clostridium perfringens have different types (A-E) based on the toxins they produce. Recently, we have seen an increase in E. coli F17 being detected in diagnostic samples.

Cambridge Technologies uses Precision Vaccinology, the combination of next generation diagnostics and quality custom manufacturing, to identify potential enteric threats affecting your herds and create a custom vaccine specifically formulated to suit your needs. 

Audio Spots - "We don't know what we don't know" E. coli F17

We’ve developed a Bovine Enteric PCR multiplex to test for five agents associated with enteric disease in one convenient test.

  • Bovine Coronavirus - Rotavirus A – E. coli K99 – Salmonella - Cryptosporidium

Once we’ve identified the organisms present in your herd, we can use next-generation sequencing to characterize and compare your isolates, giving you the information needed to design a herd-specific vaccine.

Vaccines are available in traditional liquid for or a 2-in-1 implantable pellet.  SoliDose Dual Dose Implants save time and money by eliminating the hassle of running your cattle through the chute a second time and ensuring your cattle get their second dose.

Next Generation Diagnostics + Quality Custom Manufacturing

Cambridge Technologies uses Precision Vaccinology®, a combination of Next Generation Diagnostics and Quality Custom Manufacturing, to help veterinarians find solutions to herd health problems.

It starts in our full-service diagnostics laboratory, featuring next-generation sequencing, new techniques to identify all viruses, and bacteria in samples from a herd. We use the data to select the best candidates for a herd-specific vaccine which we custom manufacture for the veterinarian with formulations optimized to meet your specific needs. Our goal is to identify emerging pathogens, prevent diseases they may cause, and reduce dependence on antibiotics.

Most calf raisers give nine to fourteen injections before day 60 of age in a calf. I can take it down to one. That’s a no-brainer.


In a veterinary practice, our job is to enhance animal health and reduce client costs, and we like to see those results. They (Cambridge) aren’t MBAs trying to drive the bottom line. They’re trying to maximize animal health. They enjoy doing that.
