Can anyone tell me if it is necessary to vacinate cows older than 2 years old for Black leg if they have allready had two years of the vacination.

Our vet says he wishes everyone would do it. The calves get some immunity from the dam & vaccination only costs about $2.00.

I vaccinate annually and worm every 6 months. My neighbor does not and he is always having cows or calves come down with the snots, or someother god-awful thing. None of my cows have ever had any problems, and I attribute that to their 1. isolation 2. Good nutrition 3. the annual vaccinations. ;-) :cboy:
