This news item is about: One of the most common cattle diseases, metritis harms animal welfare, farmers’ profits, and public health, driving more systemic antibiotic use on dairy farms than any other disease. Cornell scientists have created new vaccines that can prevent this infection of the uterus from taking hold and reduce its symptoms when it does, a prospect that could save the United States billions of dollars a year and help curb the growing epidemic of antibiotic resistance. Their results appeared in the journal PLoS One in March 2014.
