The present study has investigated the ability of live and killed bacterial vaccines to reduce lactic acidosis in sheep, via a stimulation of specific antibody production against lactic acid-producing bacteria. Forage-fed sheep were immunized with live or killed Streptococcus bovis Sb-5 vaccine, with or without adjuvant, via… CONTINUE READING
