CALFGUARD® contains modified-live bovine rota- and coronavirus propagated on established cell lines and freeze-dried to preserve stability. Vaccine is rehydrated in a 3-mL dose with sterile diluent.

Approved Uses

CALFGUARD is approved for:

Oral vaccination of healthy newborn calves, or for intramuscular vaccination of pregnant cows as an aid in passive maternal immunization of their calves against neonatal calf diarrhea (scours) caused by bovine rotavirus and bovine coronavirus. Key Features Oral vaccination of newborn calves with CALFGUARD stimulates rapid, active immunity against rota- and coronavirus diarrhea, two of the most prevalent forms of viral scours.

Can be given orally to newborn calves, or IM to pregnant cows, which transfer immunity to calves via protective antibodies in colostrum and milk.

Field studies in 21 herds showed incidence of scours was 25.7% in 1,598 vaccinated calves versus 47.8% in 1,035 nonvaccinated calves. Death loss from scours in the vaccinated calves was 2.9% versus 19.0% percent in nonvaccinated calves. When CALFGUARD was used for cow vaccination, incidence of scours in calves from vaccinated cows was 11.3%, with 0.9% death loss, versus 21.7% incidence and 4.1% death loss in calves from nonvaccinated cows.

Early vaccination can minimize contamination of premises, reducing the spread of viral scours.

CALFGUARD has been proven safe in extensive field trials.
