Abstract

Cattle treated for bovine respiratory disease (BRD) were previously described having greater odds of dying of congestive heart failure. There is a knowledge gap on how associations of BRD with non-infectious heart disease (NIHD) death. The study objective was to determine associations between the number of BRD treatments and the probability of a NIHD death.
