Recurrent outbreaks associated with leafy greens have increased concerns related to land uses adjacent to leafy green operations. Recently, the Fall 2020 U.S. Food and Drug Administration Investigation Report stated that based on their investigation, the likely contributing factor for pathogenic E. coli contamination of leafy greens has been the proximity of cattle. With the increasingly evident relationship between cattle and leafy green outbreaks, questions regarding the possibility of advancing vaccination in cattle are increasing.

Cattle vaccination is not a new topic, but has it evolved? What are the limitations or potential benefits? In this webinar, two expert researchers on cattle vaccines will cover the past landscape, current research, challenges, and the future of vaccinations.

Join us to learn the facts surrounding cattle vaccines and ask questions on the subject.
