Merial Animal Health has announced that its Schmallenberg vaccine has received approval for use in the UK and will be available this spring.
- a single 1ml subcutaneous dose for sheep
- two 1ml subcutaneous doses for cattle, three weeks apart
Findlay MacBean, Merial’s head of large animal business, said: “SBVvax will provide a cost-effective alternative for those producers who want to protect their flocks pre-tupping over the coming months. We also believe that it will be a useful tool for beef or dairy farmers bringing replacements into their herds and vaccinating cows prior to bulling.”
Vets wanting to find out more or obtain supplies of SBVvax should contact their Merial Animal Health area business development manager or ring the Merial Customer Support Centre on 0870 600 0123.
