The importance of vaccinating your cattle

03 May 2018

Vaccines can prevent a wide range of diseases that can cause reduced production, fertility or death in cattle and economic losses to producers.

Vaccines can protect cattle against clostridial diseases, reproductive and respiratory diseases as well as calf scours, bovine ephemeral fever and pinkeye.

Always follow directions on the vaccine label to ensure that the vaccination program is effective and to prevent residues in slaughtered animals.

Discussing your vaccination program with your private or government veterinarian will help you decide which vaccinations will be most valuable in maintaining your herd’s health and profitability.
