Pfizer Animal Health is offering risk-free guarantees of protection and performance for its reproductive vaccines -- Bovi-Shield GOLD FP, Bovi-Shield GOLD HB, PregGuard GOLD FP and CattleMaster GOLD FP.
Pfizer will guarantee 100% of calves born to be BVD PI-free, provided all cows and heifers have been vaccinated according to label directions at least 30 days prebreeding with these vaccines.
In addition, Pfizer Animal Health will guarantee herds to be free of IBR abortions if cows and heifers were vaccinated according to label directions at least 30 days prebreeding with the Pfizer Animal Health family of FP vaccines.
In qualifying herds, if a BVD PI calf is confirmed, the value of the calf and the testing and diagnosis of both the calf and dam will be at Pfizer Animal Health's expense. The company also will cover the cost of the diagnostics and the lost value of the animal if a positive IBR abortion is identified.
"We believe in the ability of our vaccines to help protect cattle from reproductive losses, and these guarantees further demonstrate our commitment to providing safe and effective products," says veterinarian Jon Seeger, Pfizer Animal Health veterinary operations. "That's why we're proud to back that trust with these guarantees."
Above and beyond properly administered vaccines, good management practices like improved biosecurity measures, proper nutrition and reduced stress at handling can definitely help to improve overall herd health, Seeger says.
