Abstract
Immunisation of cattle against East Coast fever (ECF) by infection and treatment is being evaluated for general application in small scale farming systems in Kenya where the disease is a major constraint to cattle production. A simple stochastic simulation model was developed and used for the financial analysis of three vaccination options, whole herd vaccination, calf vaccination and the option of no vaccination, each with and without treatment of clinical cases of ECF. The outcomes were analysed in terms of expected Net Present Values (NPV) over a 10 year period.
