This study assesses the efficacy of vaccination against staphylococci biofilm in two breeds by measuring reductions in somatic cell count (SCC) and gains in production. It also proposes a means for calculating the return on investment (ROI) of vaccination in production.


We found that the ROI was 6 in Lacaune sheep and 9 in Manchega sheep. Vaccination with VIMCO® (HIPRA) is an effective tool in controlling subclinical mastitis caused by staphylococci.
