  • Bovine TB Vaccine

    Hi,my name is Michaela, I'm a PhD student at the University of Sheffield and I'm taking part in a Bioscience enterprise competition and just wandered if I could get some views from cattle farmers. Our idea is a novel way of delivering vaccines in cattle, and we have chosen specifically to target...

  • Re: The short life of bottles of Antibiotic- An additional cost

    After qualifying as a vet in 1971, I joined the late Mike Muirhead's practice in Yorkshire and found myself wrestling with this very dilemna, how long can you keep using a bottle of antibiotic or other medication, particularly if its expensive and you don't need to use it very often. I quickly...

  • Re: Bluetongue videos and pictures

    Thanks for the praise, I have to say I don't deserve all the credit, our photographer/video man Jonathan Page is the real artist on this one and has done an excellent on pulling it together. Cheers, Jonathan

  • Re: Bluetongue vaccine ordering

    Hopefully, anyone wanting to have their stock certified as vaccinated shouldn't actually need to have their stock vaccinated by the vet, just have a vet "supervise" the vaccination. I'm not entirely sure what form this supervision may take, but it may be that they have to watch the...

  • Re: Bluetongue vaccine ordering

    A beacon of hope is rapidly emerging today with suggestions from informed sources within the DEFRA stakeholder group that bluetongue vaccine will become available in the protection zone as early as next week. DEFRA haven't confirmed it yet, but aren't denying it either. With no cases of "new"...

  • Re: Bluetongue vaccine ordering

    Corky, as others have said the point of vaccinating is to protect your own stock. If those across the border are unable to get vaccine as soon as you there is nothing you can do about that, but failing to vaccinate your own stock will leave them open to infection. Meanwhile, having spoken to vets and...

  • Re: Bluetongue vaccine ordering

    I take it you've placed an order then Peter? The prices your vet is quoting are in line with the DEFRA recommended prices, although the 50ml pack price is at the lower end and the 20ml pack price at the top end! His estimate of mid-June to July is interesting and may yet be proved right, although...

  • Bluetongue vaccine ordering

    According to this week's FWi poll about half the livestock farmers responding haven't yet ordered any bluetongue vaccine. So, who are they and why aren't they telling their vets how much vaccine they're likely to need. It may only be a rough guess for many farms at the moment, but getting...
