Pinkeye, or IBK (infectious Bo-vine Keratoconjunctivitis), is a costly disease for cattle producers.
The cost of treatment, coupled with the fact that affected calves wean off on average 15-30 pounds lighter and bring less at the market due to corneal scarring, make this disease a significant economic consideration.
Despite all we know about how pinkeye develops, control programs are often only partially successful. In particular, pinkeye vaccines seem marginal at best in preventing outbreaks during the summer.
