Vaccination is part of a proactive herd health program.

Because cattle can harbor reproductive diseases without showing symptoms, they can be a source of infection for the herd. To help prevent reproductive and respiratory diseases, it’s important to build strong immunity as part of a comprehensive dairy herd health program that includes:

  • Balanced nutrition
  • A clean environment
  • Proper ventilation
  • Limiting stress and exposure to infected animals
  • Vaccination to bolster herd immunity
