Twelve Pasteurella-free Holstein-Friesian calves were used in a study to test the efficacy of a live streptomycin-dependent Pasteurella multocida A:3 and streptomycin-dependent Pasteurella haemolytica A1 vaccine. The calves were inoculated intramuscularly twice at 14-day intervals with either the streptomycin-dependent vaccine, containing 1 X 10(6) colony forming units/mL P. multocida and 4 X 10(8) colony forming units/mL P. haemolytica, commercial bacterin, or phosphate buffered saline. Two weeks following the second vaccination, all calves were challenged by intranasal inoculation of 10(8) TCID50/4.0 mL infectious bovine rhinotracheitis virus followed three days later by intratracheal injection with 2.3 X 10(7) colony forming units/mL of a 16 hour culture of P. multocida A:3 and 2.6 X 10(8) colony forming units/mL of an 8 hour culture of P. haemolytica A1. Seven days after challenge with Pasteurella, calves were killed for collection of tissues at necropsy. Each calf was given a score based on macroscopic and microscopic lesions. The scores for the calves receiving live vaccines were significantly lower (p less than 0.025) than those for the controls. Also, the calves receiving live vaccines had a significant (p less than 0.05) increase in the level of serum antibody to P. haemolytica. The results of this preliminary study showed that the streptomycin-dependent vaccine offered better protection than the commercial bacterin against a virulent homologous challenge.
