The correct term for the vaccination and the disease is actually pasturella instead of pneumonia. Our heat and high humidity here in the Deep South make pasturella a real killer in the summer time. We began the vaccinations about 7 years ago and rarely experience a death from respiratory infections. If the goats breathe easier, they grow better — and that makes me breathe easier.
