The vaccine has shown proven efficacy and performance in challenge studies and side-by-side comparisons. The vaccine is for use in healthy cattle of all ages to aid in the prevention of BRD caused by Mannheimia haemolytica and Pasteurella multocida.
Bovine Respiratory Disease (BRD) is a major problem throughout the United States and a costly one for cattle producers. The complexity of the disease compounds the problem. There are multiple causes and secondary bacterial sources that increase the severity of infection and complicate diagnosis.
BRD is a complex, stress-related disease. A secondary bacterial infection often caused by Mannheimia haemolytica or Pasteurella multocida are typically found in the nasal microflora of healthy calves. Stress or viral infection can trigger excessive overgrowth of virulent bacterial strains such as Mannheimia haemolytica and Pasteurella multocida. When these bacteria invade the lungs, calves can develop pneumonic pasteurellosis.
