SureCalf Store is aimed at calves over 8 months of age which have already undergone a winter housing period. The key risk for these older calves as they pass through market is IBR. This scheme therefore ensures calves are vaccinated pre-sale against IBR and also Pi3v, a respiratory virus which can increase the risk of both IBR, and bacterial causes of pneumonia (such as Mannheimia (Pasteurella) haemolytica).
Calves over 8 months of age, already housed through a winter period, are vaccinated with a single intranasal dose of ImurespTM RP given 1-3 weeks prior to sale.
This ensures that calves are protected against the respiratory viruses IBR and Pi3v as they pass through market and for up to 6 months afterwards.
How it works
Sellers register their calves for free, at least 2 weeks prior to sale by calling the SureCalf Helpline on 0800 668 1886.
Sellers receive personalised SureCalf certificates which provide details of the vaccines used and dates of administration.
On the day of sale, the seller provides the buyer with a signed certificate, as a declaration of compliance with the requirements of the SureCalf Programme.
