Alpharma Launches New Bovatec® Delivery System for Pasture Cattle
AT THIS WEEKS ANNUAL NCBA TRADESHOW IN DENVER, ALPHARMA ANIMAL HEALTH INTRODUCED A CONVENIENT WAY TO PROVIDE IONOPHORE SUPPLEMENTATION TO DAIRY CATTLE ONPASTURE. CALLED BOVATEC® 2.2, THE NEW 44-POUND BLOCK CONTAINS 2.2 GRAMS OF BOVATEC PER POUND.
RYAN DUNN, THE MARKETING MANAGER FOR U.S. CATTLE PRODUCTS AT ALPHARMA, TELLS US MORE:
Bovatec enhances growth rates in most any type or quality of pasture for cattle producers. By offering Bovatec in a block form, we are making it easier for producers currently not using Bovatec to deliver it to their pasture cattle.
EXTENSION SPECIALIST DR. DALE BLASI [BLAAS-ee] FROM KANSAS STATE UNIVERSITY HAD THIS TO SAY:
The block form of Bovatec 2.2 appears to be compact and easy to handle, and I believe it will allow managers the opportunity to monitor consumption patterns in the field. Also, the salt content in Bovatec 2.2 will certainly help to encourage intake, and the convenience of the block will help save time and labor.
ACCORDING TO ALPHARMA, THE NEW BLOCK CONTAINING BOVATEC IS AVAILABLE NOW FOR THE SPRING GRAZING SEASON.
