Experts Evaluate Effectiveness of Cuban Cattle Tick Vaccine
Specialists with the Institute of Veterinary Medicine along biotechnology and parasitology experts will also discuss the effects of the Cuban vaccine on cattle herds in the largest cattle farms in this territory.

Provincial Veterinary Medicine vice-director Zoe Debrook told ACN that the administration of the vaccine GAVAC allowed increasing the potential in local cattle raising enterprises. She added that the workshop will analyze the effects of the vaccine in several other farms and in ranches managed by individual farmers.

The recombinant vaccine, which is considered one of the major Cuban biotechnological products, began to be administered to cattle herds in 1995, while the livestock sector was waging a comprehensive fight against cattle ticks.
