We know that the most important role you have is to help your producers make the best decisions to protect their herd and maximize returns. So when it comes to vaccines, it pays to think beyond disease prevention.
In this webinar, Dr. George Perry discusses two studies that examine the impact of vaccine type — killed vaccine versus modified live virus vaccine — on luteal cells and progesterone that affect reproductive rates. Based on research conducted at South Dakota State University, animals given the killed vaccine Vira Shield® had a 6.5% higher first-service conception rate compared to a modified live virus vaccine and a higher percentage of cows calving in the first 21 days of the calving season.
Dr. Perry examines how this provides a path to lifetime immunity by using the right product with the right protection at the right time. Watch the webinar to learn how this approach can impact herd health and a producer’s bottom line.
