Anyone using it in their cowherd? I am trying to eliminate the few Salmonella infections/deaths I have had in 2 week old/month old calves in the last couple of years. That was vet's recommendation and from the vaccine manufacturer literature it seems like a pretty good option. I have my Rota and Corona virus covered already with Calf Guard at birth.

I switched from Calf Guard (I used it as an oral vaccine on the calf not as an injectable vaccine on the pregnant cow) to First Defense because I believe E coli K99 is a bigger risk than Rotavirus. First Defense covers K99 and Coronavirus but not Rota.

The other thing I do is use corid starting at 6 weeks as a preventative for coccidia.

This routine has worked well. The last two fall calf crops have not had any cases of scours (intestinal infection) so I don't think salmonella is a problem here.

My Vet recommended it last year as a preventative for pink eye. Everything got at least one round of it. I never treated anything for pink eye. Was it the year or the vaccine? I dunno but I'm using it again this year.

I ended up ordering two 50 dose bottles to try on the spring-calving cows. Better be some phenomenal stuff for $300.

Where did you order it from? Valley Vet has it for $82.95 for a 50 dose bottle.

By the time you turn that into CAD and pay the shipping and possibly some duty that sounds like about the same price.

Yeah, that is Canuckistan price through my vet. Glad it's only one dose a year after the initiation rounds.
