Vaccination: information for farmers

  • A cow’s ability to avoid and fight infection is largely dependent on a range of defences which are collectively called immunity.
  • Immunity includes: 
    • Physical barriers, such as skin, or a teat plug, for example.
    • Chemical immunity, such as from antibodies and inflammatory substances. 
    • Cells, which either actively seek and destroy pathogens (bugs) or produce antibodies to neutralise pathogens.
