AgriLabs to expand autogenous vaccines for beef and dairy cattle

AgriLabs announced it is building on its partnership with Addison Biological Laboratory by rolling out two new autogenous products – Moraxella bovoculi and Streptococcus uberis mastitis vaccines – made with ENABL®, a new adjuvant from VaxLiant® that is U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)-approved for safety. These products not only expand AgriLabs’ autogenous portfolio but also meet the growing demand for customized vaccine solutions, offering producers more options for maintaining herd health. “This product expansion further strengthens a partnership with Addison Labs that has been a significant asset to the growth of I-Site XP, a broad protection vaccine against pinkeye,” said Brian Reardon, Business Unit Manager for AgriLabs. “By extending this partnership with Addison Labs, we are ensuring producers have more access to herd-specific vaccines as herd conditions change.”
