Pestigard Vaccine for Cattle
Pestigard is the first vaccine for the prevention of Bovine Viral Diarrhoea Virus (BVDV), otherwise known as Bovine Pestivirus in cattle in Australia.
• BVDV is a widespread disease throughout Australian cattle herds causing significant productivity loss by affecting the reproductive performance of the herd or increasing susceptibility to other common diseases
• The introduction of a Pestigard vaccination program will reduce reproductive loss caused by BVDV. Pestigard will also stimulate active immunity against BVDV which will assist in the reduction of losses associated with the Bovine Respiratory Disease (BRD) complex and other clinical diseases where BVDV is implicated
• A Pestigard vaccination program can be conveniently integrated into existing management practices
