Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica is offering several products of benefit to the dairy industry, including Vovikalc calcium boluses, Daque nutritional supplements for calves, Stocker insecticide ear tags, and Breed-Back FP for BVD.
Bovikalc is a unique bolus formulation of calcium that provides for both fast and extended sustained serum calcium levels. This oral mineral nutritional supplement provides a source of calcium for use in freshening cows, featuring two sources of calcium designed to ninimize irritation and waste, while reducing risk of aspiration pneumonia in and easy to administer formula.
Diaque is a nutritional supplement providing a source of energy and electrolytes for young animals. It is a unique formula containing a patented hydrophobic citrus fiber and a three-step buffering system that allows it to be fed with milk. Highly palatable and convenient, it can be fed with milk, milk replacer, or warm water. An excellent source of energy, Diaque contains a balanced electrolyte formula in an easy-to-use 3.5 oz packet or bulk pails that for easy mix and clean up.
Stocker Insecticide Cattle Ear Tags are injection molded ear tags containing 20% diazinon or 2000 mg diazinon per tag, and applied with the Allflex Universal Total Tagger Applicator.
Finally, while I was researching these new products, I discoverd Breed-Back FP for persistent BVD, and recalled our discussion late last week on the subject. There are several products available under the Breed-Back banner.
