Cattle Vaccinations - Update


Effective vaccination protocols are becoming increasingly important as we push for lower levels of disease and antibiotic usage. They play a key role in reducing losses associated with death, abortions and sick animals as well as sub clinical disease. Whilst vaccines come at a cost, they are often a wise investment to limit the financial implications associated with disease outbreaks. 

Cattle vaccine sales in the UK have grown by 18% between 2011-2022 with a particular increase in calf pneumonia (45%) and calf enteritis (37%) vaccine uptake (AHDB). Calf scour and pneumonia are often associated with high levels of mortality and morbidity so it is not surprising that an increasing number of farmers are seeing the cost benefit of vaccinating against these diseases.
