Pasteurella vaccination for lambs
« on: March 24, 2016, 08:12:23 am »
Just wondering what brand of vaccine you guys use for pasteurella and related diseases in lambs at 4 weeks. Hep+ system used on ewes inc booster pre lambing.
Lost a few last year so determined to do all I can this season.
Thanks in advance.

Heptavac P Plus - we don't have enough lambs to justify using differenet vaccines on lambs intended for breeding and lambs for slaughter.
