I have had a lot of experience battling CL in WTD. Here is a TVMDL cultured and confirmed case of arcanobacterium pyogenes (CL). This was in a 2.5 year old buck. The buck was in ~10 acre pen and the abscess grew rapidly! Also, TVMDL has cultured CL from multiple other submissions of mine: abscess in the mouth (lip), hoof abscess, and lungs. As Dr. Joe mentioned, once it is in the soil, it is very contagious. When I actually treat these animals and drain the abscesses, I always wear gloves.

The Kerr WMA had their own autogenous vaccine made to treat CL because they have had trouble with it in their pens as well.

It is my understanc=ing that the vaccine does not kill an already infected animal. It does in most cases keep the abcesses in check, but unless I am wrong, an animal infected with CL will always be so.
