Bovine – English Vocabulary about Animals

/ˈbəʊ.vaɪn/ (adj)


connected to cows or cattle or similar to them, cow-like, taurine – showing characteristics of cows such as being slow and stupid, unintelligent, imperceptive, dull


Bovine Viral Diarrhea (BVD) is a disease of cattle caused by the Bovine Viral Diarrhea Virus (BVDV). The virus is widespread and most herds are at risk for infection. In the susceptible herd, BVD can be a serious, costly disease.

The signs of BVD vary, depending on the immune status of the exposed animals, and the strain of the infecting virus. The incubation period is about three to five days. If susceptible (non-vaccinated) animals are infected with a virulent strain of the virus, the disease will likely appear as an acute, severe sickness, with bloody diarrhea, high fever (105–107 degrees), off- feed, mouth ulcers, and often pneumonia.
