Good to hear about this disease related to dairy cattle, but my concerns is that, what dairy breed is very sensitive against this disease? Since nowadays the live animal business from dairy developing country to non-developed country is seriously running, but there are so many problems in imported or receiver country, especially in terms of feeding and housing, as well as proper selection of the cows during ordering process. Thanks.

Although production of IgY by hyper-immunizing laying bird and harvesting from eggs is an easy process there are few issues: (a) administering intravenous is not without problem due to immunological response and (b) when given orally these are very sensitive to proteolytic enzymes. There are reports to suggest that major part of IgY is destroyed in intestine.

Thanks for your comment. We are working in the development of a vaccine. Right now is under field trial in dairy productive conditions with positive results. We could discuss about that if you want to.
