Depends on when he had his cdt. How old is he, and when is the last vaccination date?

Your going to get different answers to this. Some people will give the cdt again or for the first time at times like banding and disbudding, some will give the antitoxin, I'm not sure if anyone just goes off of their vaccine they had in the past, at least I've never heard of it.
Me? I give the antitoxin. It makes more sense to ME to do it this way. A vaccine is giving them a small dose of what you are vaccinating against, let's take tetanus for a example. So the vaccine gives a small dose of tetanus in a way. It's small and will not cause them to have symptoms of the disease just kinda fool the body so it can make antibodies against it. The antitoxin will keep them from getting tetanus for 14 days......it will totally kill it basically which is why if you do decide to go with the antitoxin then you will have to revaccinate him after the 14 days and a booster 3 weeks later

CD&T will cover them if given semi recent, and the booster shot was given as well.

Don't band him till at least 8 weeks old. If he is only a month old now, you will be fine.

I agree with Karen.
Just give him the booster shot when it is due and then after, he should be OK to band, at 8 weeks old.
