Vaccination programs for sheep
Series: Agfact A3.9.47 Edition: Second edition Last updated: 01 Mar 2005
Sheep owners can prevent the economic losses from certain diseases by using a planned vaccination program. For diseases likely to occur each year, sheep need to be vaccinated routinely. For diseases that are serious, but only occur in certain circumstances, vaccination can be a form of insurance.
This Agfact details vaccination programs available to prevent several sheep diseases. However, producers should consult their local veterinarian to ensure that a correct diagnosis has been made and to fine tune the vaccination program to suit their property management routine.
