Directions For Use
Shake well before using. Administer 5 mL subcutaneously. In accordance with Beef Quality Assurance guidelines, this product should be administered subcutaneously (under the skin) in the neck. Revaccinate in 4 to 5 weeks. Vaccinate dairy cows at dry-off. Historically, annual revaccination with a single dose has been recommended for this product. The need for this booster has not been established. The presence of maternal antibody is known to interfere with the development of active immunity in calves and additional boosters will be required in most young animals. For advice on revaccination frequency, in general or in the face of maternal antibody, consultation with a veterinarian is recommended.
