I can never remember. The label on this vaccine only says that calves vaccinated at less than six months of age should be re-vaccinated at 6 months. It does not specifically say it needs a booster in 4 to 6 weeks. I'm about to boost the Fermicon 7, trying to decide if I need to do the Pyramid also. Every year I run into this conundrum.
Further reading of the label online I found this:

For viral fractions, annual revaccination with Pyramid® FP 5 is recommended. For Mannheimia haemolytica, although only a single dose is necessary to confer immunity, a booster dose with Presponse® SQ is recommended whenever subsequent stress is likely.

So I guess I have it figured, now the trick is to remember for next year.
Our calves get Bovishield Gold One Shot at branding, same for heifer calves we retain at weaning. Bovishield Gold FP5 VL5 pre breeding.
