Heifers and health challenges

The Express(r) FP line of modified-live virus vaccines gets breeding-age heifers off to a great start, and provides protection against key reproductive diseases that can impact fertility, conception and gestation. An effective immune response is best accomplished with two to three doses.

Replacement heifer health should start early, though, as vaccinations received as a calf help set her up for success down the road. The combination of Pyramid(r) 5 + Presponse&(r) SQ helps protect calves against major viral and bacterial respiratory diseases in a single syringe. Always read and follow product label directions.

Improve your modified-live virus vaccine program with tips on proper mixing, handling and administration.
