    In my experience, a vaccine in reasonable bulk purchase is £6-7 per jag, no mater what it is for and how many boosters they need.

    Surely bvd vaccination is best administered soon after calving to protect the forthcoming pregnancy ?

    Bovillis, but thinking of using bovela for the heifers then bovillis booster for the cows to save jabbing the heifers twice.

    I didn't use any vaccines as were bvd free and have a low level of lepto,a lame bull last spring meant I got the Ai man for the 1st time in years and he kindly brought me ibr :banghead: it spread like wildfire through my herd.
    Going to vaccinate for botulism later this week because of another local outbreak,£2.40/cow.

    A small amount of leptavoid has been released last week, you might get lucky.
