A new genotype of bovine viral diarrhoea virus (BvDv), designated BVDV-2, has emerged in the last decade and in recent years the prevalence of BVDV-2 strains has increased. A vaccination-challenge study was carried out to determine the cross-protective efficacy of a commercial inactivated vaccine containing a BVDV-1 strain. A group of five BVDv-free calves was vaccinated twice and a second group of five calves served as negative controls. Two months after the first vaccination, all the calves were challenged intranasally with BVDV-2 strain BVD890. The clinical signs of disease, the changes in haematological variables and the level of viraemia were significantly less in the vaccinated group.
