Scanning cows reveals a positive response to IBR vaccination
We visited a suckler farmer in Co. Longford. The Reproductive performance in the herd was excellent. However previous reproductive history was extremely poor. An investigation revealed that IBR infection caused severe health problems and associated impairment of reproductive performance. A vaccination programme was put in place five months ago, and the overall health of the herd has improved dramatically. This required a live vaccine initially and will be followed up by another vaccine 6 weeks later.
