The Victorian Institute of Animal Science (VIAS) has had a major research program running for a number of years aimed at developing viable anti-LHRH vaccines for use in dogs, cats and pigs. In late December 1993 VIAS was approached by deer producers in NE-Victoria, who had learnt of our work with these immunocastration vaccines. The producers were interested in the potential of immunocastration to control rutting behaviour in stags destined for venison production.
