Canadian producers can now access an E. coli cattle vaccine without facing any restrictions – other than availability of supply.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will license a cattle vaccine owned by a Canadian company. Belleville-based Bioniche Life Sciences Inc. announced today that it had received approval for a conditional license for the vaccine, intended to reduce the presence of E. coli 0157:H7 in cattle.
An Ontario company that specializes in animal and human health products will get a $10 million provincial loan and a $5 million federal grant to scale up production on an E. coli cattle vaccine whose U.S. licensing application has been put on hold.
