First Defense® is the only USDA-approved, colostrum-derived, scours preventative which goes Beyond Vaccination to protect against E. coli and coronavirus. The new USDA-approved First Defense® Tri-Shield adds rotavirus protection, further establishing ImmuCell’s role as an immunity innovator. ImmuCell is also nearing FDA approval of an intramammary treatment for subclinical mastitis.
