    This one makes it seem a lot more complicated than it is, but it gives you all the info you need.

    If you've watched the vet, you can give shots. There's really not a whole lot that can go wrong...

    WOW! That web site sure taught me a lesson. I have been raising cattle for about 5 years now and I always give our calves a vitamin A&D shot and a white muscle shot within the first 24 hours after birth. I found out I was doing it in the wrong spot!!! :eek: Thanks for the helpful info!!!
