*There are various protocols for IBR vaccination. Discuss with your veterinary practitioner. Do NOT vaccinate potential A.I. sires for IBR. **All cattle vaccinated with the primary vaccination course of a Salmonella vaccine should receive a booster at least two weeks prior to each period of risk or at intervals of not more than 12 months thereafter. As part of an overall herd management programme, for pregnant cattle, it is advised that for each subsequent pregnancy, a booster should be given approximately 3-4 weeks before calving to provide a sufficient level of colostral protection for calves. The other risk for cows is abortion in late pregnancy and a booster in mid pregnancy may be considered. Discuss with your veterinary practitioner. ***Depending on the product, BVD boosters may be required every 6 months or annually.
