AgCenter scientists have invented a vaccine and diagnostic for Bovine Coronavirus (BCoV). Studies with the vaccine have shown that it helps cattle’s immune system produce more BCoV antibodies to fight the disease and protects the herd from catching virus from other infected cattle. Elements of the vaccine can be purified to form an advanced diagnostic that can detect the presence of BCoV to help isolate and prevent future outbreaks.
