One of my first questions to any client is "Can you describe your vaccination program?"
The ideal answer is one which has the first vaccination given to young animals pre marking, with a booster no more than 4 - 6 weeks later. And then an annual booster for adults
As you can see in the graph, the longer you leave the second booster, the greater the chance losing animals to disease.
Remember it takes about 10 - 12 days to build antibodies from the first vaccination, so giving this first shot at marking means there is a period where animals will sill be unprotected. And in the case of clostridial diseases, this can be a significant risk.
