Developed by Professor François Malouin and his team at the Université de Sherbrooke’s Department of Biology, a new vaccine offers a previously unexplored approach to controlling proliferation of the udder infection, which is caused by the very virulent Staphylococcus aureus bacteria. A license agreement with the multinational Bayer is now confirmed. This happy ending was possible with the financial support of the Dairy Research Cluster. (watch the video about this discovery on YouTube – Bovine Mastitis )
Congratulations to Dr. Malouin and his team at the Canadian Bovine Mastitis and Milk Quality Research Network for this great achievement !
