Biosecurity 

It is always advisable to consider quarantining new stock - from chickens to cattle. A quarantine period of 2-3 weeks is recommended. This period allows your newcomers a quieter and less stressful introduction to your premises and your local bugs meaning that they should be more able to mount an effective immune response. It also gives you an opportunity to treat them for internal (and external) parasites and allows you to see if they are in the process of coming down with diseases that may have been acquired at market or on their previous farm such as scab, footrot or pneumonia before you introduce them to your own animals which may be susceptible.

Cattle will have been sampled for TB prior to movement but if you are introducing a small number of beasts to an established herd, you may also wish to consider sampling for the big three - BVD, IBR, and Leptospirosis which, when introduced to a naive herd can have a massive impact on fertility and milk yield.

If you are batch buying youngsters for rearing on then this is probably not economic but a quarantine period is still highly recommended, as is keeping new animals separate from any breeding stock.
