Hey guys. Looking for some advice here. What type of vaccines do you usually administer when you get new deer in? I work on a cattle farm so I have access to pretty much all the vaccines.

Save your money. Worm and go. if you have a Fuso issue down the line then you could fight that off but keep them wormed and healthy and you have the game won.

I've been doing game ranching for about forty years. Like some of these guys said we started out doing nothing for the deer and they did well with just worming. As time goes by different disease come into play and settle into the ground. Diseases like fuso, e-coli just to name a few. Whitetail seemed to not have a big problem with these issues but mule deer were a different story. We now have a program with worming and good nutrition but felt it was better to be proactive with problems that could be best treated with better colostrum in the does.
We give the does both of Josh Newtons shots which cover fuso and e-coli. This year we had something we have never had which was type A toxiod. When we gave fawns shots for this new problem we saved the fawns. Rather than wait to see if the problem would come back in 2018 we have incorporated type A toxiod shots into our does. This will insure the does produce the right and quality of colostrum we need those fawns to receive for their health.
We then will start the fawns on these vaccines early in their life for the best protection we can give them as the fawns started to die at two months old.

Type A toxiod is in the same family as C&D toxiod. Symptoms were animals were healthy at the night feeding and dead or dying in the morning. It is very fast. When we looked at them the last foot of their intestine just before the rectum was hemorrhaged and full of blood. Fresh blood was seen coming out the rectum in most fawns.
Josh shots do have type A in them but it was my fault the fawns died because I didn't follow through and give his shots to the bottle fawns. So when the immunity ran out from the colostrum the fawns got sick. I covered my bases and gave the shots from Josh and did buy a type A from PBS animal health from Novartis called Clostridium Perfringens Type A toxoid. Looked like there was only one vaccine available for type A
We will give the does this year both Josh shots and the commercial brand of type A about 50 days before birth and start the fawns at least before 15 days of age with Josh shots.
