Rodale Institute, a non-profit dedicated to pioneering organic farming through research and outreach, announced that they have partnered with CowMaster to provide botanical formulas from certified organic and wild-crafted sources to dairy farmers. Through the partnership, 20% of all CowMaster profits will be donated to Rodale Institute. “Rodale Institute’s new partnership with CowMaster will not only generate a new source of funds for our continued research, education and outreach in the field of organics, but will also enhance the health and well-being of dairy cows around the world,” said Rodale Institute Executive Director, ‘Coach’ Mark Smallwood.
CowMaster is the developer of botanical preparations to enhance milk quality, digestion, conception and general health. These products have all been approved for use by organic certification agencies in the United States and Canada. Founded by Dr. Hubert Karreman, Adjunct Veterinarian at Rodale Institute and 5th generation Chinese herbal medicine manufacturer, Mr. Gao Bobo, CowMaster builds on their years of experience providing botanical preparations for bovine health.
A former member of the National Organic Standards Board which creates the rules for the USDA Organic Certification, Dr. Karreman has provided veterinary care to both organic and conventional dairy farmers for over 20 years. Karreman’s arrival at the Institute last year closely followed Smallwood’s decision to bring livestock to the Institute’s research farm for the first time in 2010.
“For decades, farmers of all walks have sought out Rodale Institute’s expert advice, organic and conventional. We are honored to offer a co-branded line of bovine health products alongside the Rodale name,” said Dr. Karreman. Co-branded Rodale Institute /
