THE UK’S first inactivated five in one vaccine for the protection against some of the most common disease challenges in layer and breeder units has been launched by Intervet.

The new vaccine protects against classical and variant avian rhinotracheitis, infectious bronchitis, Newcastle disease and egg drop syndrome, says Intervet. When vaccinating with the new NOBILIS RT+IBmulti+ND+EDS at 14-20 weeks of age, the company claims it will provide protection for at least one laying period.

The price varies according to order size (01908 665 050; fax 01908 685 555).
