Cattle Health: What Should Producers Do After A BVD Outbreak?
After an outbreak of BVD, producers must continue to be watchful to make sure that BVD does not become a chronic problem on the farm. Here are some points that producers should know about:
Your vaccination program is the best protection that you can give cattle against BVD. Cattle that have been infected with BVD do not have long lasting immunity. So it is important that producers all cattle and keep booster vaccinations up to date. Use vaccines according to the recommendations on the label unless your veterinarian makes different recommendations. Calves, heifers and cows that have not been vaccinated before will need a double vaccination the first time they are vaccinated with a killed vaccine.
