The only vaccine to control ringworm in cattle is now available in a larger vial size to make it easier to administer to greater numbers of calves.

Bovilis RingvacBovilis Ringvac – manufactured by MSD Animal Health – now comes in a 20-dose vial in addition to the 5-dose presentation.

Ringvac can be used to prevent ringworm and treat the irritating fungal skin condition to shorten the recovery time of affected cattle.

Two injections

The vaccination course is two intramuscular injections 10-14 days apart. Calves can be vaccinated from two weeks of age and should be immune to ringworm three weeks after the second injection.

Farmer feedback suggests correctly vaccinated cattle are protected for life without the need for boosters.
