Description
• Longrange vaccine is used to prevent botulism in cattle using a single annual dose.
• Longrange Botulinum vaccine provides annual protection against Clostridium botulinum Types C and D toxins.

Key Benefits

• Longrange replaces the need to use two initial doses of vaccine. Longrange provides cattle producers with an effective, economical and safe vaccine, providing protection for their cattle while saving on expensive mustering costs and eliminating the expense of a second dose.
• Trials in northern Australia have also shown that site reactions following vaccination with Longrange were minimal.
• Longrange does not clog or block vaccinators, so the purchase of new or special vaccinators is not required.

Approved Uses
Longrange vaccine provides protection against both C. botulinum Type C and C. botulinum Type D in cattle.
