The importance of vaccination in livestock

Vaccines are used to protect animals from a wide range of diseases that affects the production, fertility and economic losses to the farmers. This is done by stimulating a defensive environment and preparing the animal to resist the impact of a pathogenic microorganism it may encounter later in life. They are efficient in preventing the transmission and spread of contagious animal diseases from animals to people and from animal to animal. Vaccines ensure that the products such as meat, eggs and milk from animals are safe for consumption. They also help in the conservation of food and water into animal proteins and other essential nutrients.
