The effects of immunization with the ferric citrate receptor FecA on antibody responses and on experimentally induced mastitis following intramammary challenge were investigated. Twenty-one cows were assigned to seven blocks of three cows based on expected parturition. Cows within block were randomly assigned to one of three treatments: 1) FecA immunization, 2) Escherichia coli J5 immunization, and 3) unimmunized controls.
