Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 7, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta New IBR vaccine OK for pregnant cows A new vaccine Is on the Ci nadian market which can be used to vaccinate pregnan cows and heifers against infec tious bovine rhinotracbedtis (IBR) or red nose. Previously IBR vaccines could be used only on open cows. The new vaccine was releas- ed in the United States last fall after about a year of trials It was first used in Alberta in November on a dairy herd near Edmonton. Dr. G. G. Klavano, micro- biologist at the provincial vet- erinary services laboratory, reports that there have been no subsequent abortions in the herd, nor any side effects. IBR can occur in both dairy and beef cattle. The percent- of abortions is usually much higher in beef herds and can range anywhere from 15 to 60 per cent. However, five of the nine cases of IBR diagnosed in the herds completely separate from unvaccinated breeding herds while the cows are in calf. He also advises anyone who buys feeders to keep them well away from the breeding herd. Dairymen would be wise, he said, to contact their local vel- erioarian and discuss the feas- ibility of using the new vac- cine on their herds. Although keeping tho breed- Ing herd closed and vaccinat- ing will not gurantee 100 per cent fredom from IBR, it will greatly reduce the possibility of the disease gaining a foothold, said Dr. Klavano.
