The aim of the present study was to evaluate the efficacy of S. aureus vaccine against caprine mastitis (VIMCO®, HIPRA, Spain) after an experimental intramammary challenge with a heterologous S. aureus strain in US dairy goats.


Results presented in this study demonstrate that the intramuscular immunization of goats with VIMCO® vaccine significantly reduces clinical signs of mastitis and tended to reduce bacteriological count after an intramammary infection with S. aureus heterologous strain.
