Several animals died of blackleg on a farm in the Melville, Sask., area in mid-August.
The incident prompted veterinarian Zachary Johnson to remind producers about the importance and effectiveness of vaccination against the fatal illness.
“That producer in particular hadn’t vaccinated within the last five years for blackleg,” said Johnson about the case.
“So we had a bit of discussion about cost per head and cost of finding the disease once it actually has hit and how the numbers just don’t make sense to not vaccinate, basically.”
