Keeping in view the importance of the disease, importance of prevention and crucial stage for dam and calf this study was designed to evaluate the effect of vitamin E and Selenium supplementation along with HS and FMD vaccination at various days before parturition on antibody production in cattle and passive transfer of antibodies in colostrum and calves.
Highest colostral antibody titer was obtained against all strains of FMD virus and Pasteurella multocida in group G in which vitamin E and selenium was given at the 75 days prepartum confirming that vitamin E and selenium improves passive transfer of antibodies. Antibody titer at 45 and 60 day prepartum group was higher in selenium and vitamin E supplemented groups.
