Many farm clients vaccinate their cows against Bovine Viral Diarrhoea (BVD) and Infectious Bovine Rhinotracheitis (IBR) using Bovilis BVD and Bovilis IBR Marker Live vaccines. Previously it has been advised to administer these two vaccines a minimum of 2 weeks apart, but new work by the manufacturer MSD Animal Health has meant that the advice has changed. The 2 vaccines can now be mixed together and administered into the muscle via the same syringe.
This should save valuable time and effort, whilst still offering the same high levels of disease prevention. To see how to go about mixing these vaccines correctly, follow the link to a short MSD video tutorial.
