Abstract: The objectives of this prospective longitudinal cohort study are to compare the results from infrared thermography (IRT) and rectal thermography over the first week after arrival to a veal facility, determine the utility of IRT in identifying high-risk calves, and determine the ideal day after arrival to collect body temperature to maximize sensitivity and specificity in identifying calves at high-risk to die or be treated for disease.The hypothesis is that IRT will accurately identify calves at high-risk to die,or be treated for disease, with better accuracy than temperatures collected with a rectal thermometer.
