Efficacy of vaccination against biofilm-producing staphylococci as a preventive measure against subclinical mastitis in lacaune and manchega sheep in Spain

 

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.
