Spirovac is the only Cattle Lepto vaccine in Ireland:
- To offer basic vaccination from as early as 4 weeks of age followed by yearly vaccinations thereafter
- To reduce Lepto shedding from existing carriers AND reduce colonisation of the kidneys, which helps to decrease the number of Lepto carriers
- With a flexible vaccination program; a yearly booster can be given at a time of your choice
Bovine leptospirosis is a highly infectious bacterial disease and is widespread in Ireland with over 70%1 of dairy herds infected and approximately 80%2 of beef herds infected.
Leptospirosis can cause:
- Poor conception
- Milk drop
- Poor calf performance
Leptospirosis is a danger to humans and is an occupational hazard. Leptospirosis is best controlled by vaccination to both reduce shedding from carrier animals AND to decrease the number of carriers in the herd.
