Product DescriptionBovi-Shield GOLD 5 is a freeze-dried preparation of modified live virus (MLV) strains of IBR, BVD (Types 1 and 2), PI-3, and BRS viruses, plus a sterile diluent used to rehydrate the freeze-dried vaccine.

In accordance with Beef Quality Assurance guidelines, this product should be administered SC in the neck region.
Primary Vaccination: Administer a single 2-mL dose to healthy cattle. To avoid possible maternal antibody interference with vaccination, calves vaccinated before the age of 6 months should be revaccinated after 6 months of age.
