Key information about vaccine programmes on farm


Vaccines and vaccination programmes on farm is the topic for discussion on this week’s Pig Edge with Laura Boyd from MSD joining presenter Ciarán Carroll to discuss in detail when farms should consider vaccinating against a disease.

Laura explains the different types of vaccines that are available and the most common problems we see on farm when it comes to vaccination.

She also discusses the storage of vaccines and some of the safety factors to consider when vaccinating pigs, plus she gives a brief overview of where we see vaccination going in the future.
