    Cow vacinations!

    I'm just curious what other folk vaccinate there cows for. BVD? Lepto? clostridial diseases?

    Don't itch for something if you're not prepared to scratch for it.

    BVD. Lepto. Both precautionary , not evidence of disease

    IBR Marker Live, twice a year ( once mixed with the BVD) , we were heavily infected with IBR (from bulk milk tests) though no really obvious ill effects , but I have a gut feeling that herd health has improved after vaccination.

    And Salmonella vaccine (Bovivac S ) Did drop this but started again very quickly after a few scouring calves and cows.

    Calves with RingVac if we have anything with ringworm, which we havenít at the minute.

    Lepto, IBR, clostridial (we seem to get away with just doing them as youngstock for the latter, but we know we get blackleg on the farm). We are naive for BVD, regularly monitor it and very biosecurity conscious (closed herd etc)! We have also never had IBR.,

    none here.. but considering IBR as bulk samples are high but with no obvious signs of it and would rather not have to. we're free of BVD and lepto but have johnes..
