Schmallenberg vaccine


You may have seen in the farming press that a provisionally licensed vaccine against the Schmallenberg virus is now available.


The duration of immunity is likely to be a year or so, but the initial course of vaccine for cattle is 2 doses (3 weeks apart) and for sheep 1 dose.


Cost is around £3 per dose. Only breeding females need the vaccine to protect the developing calf.
