AgriLabs Adds Convenience With Larger Size estroPLAN

St. Joseph, MO - AgriLabs is recognized as an industry leader in providing products and technical expertise so that veterinarians and producers can more effectively manage their beef and dairy herds. To augment its core cattle vaccine capabilities, AgriLabs recently acquired the exclusive sales, marketing and distribution rights for the Pulmo-Guard family of Pasturella cattle vaccines: one-dose Pulmo-Guard PHM-1, Pulmo-Guard PH-M and the combination Express 5-PHM previously sold by Boehringer Inghelheim Vetmedica, Inc.

AgriLabs is now expanding its value to the cattle market with product introductions in critical aspects of reproductive management, especially estrus control. Adam Yankowsky, AgriLabs Brand Manager, at a recent meeting announced that, "estroPLAN is now available in a 100 ml. size. This 50-dose bottle makes it more convenient and efficient to use estroPLAN in larger operations."

Dr. Joel Ehrenzweig, AgriLabs Technical Services manager, added, "Synchronized breeding programs improve herd profitability. To maximize milk production, dairy cows need to be bred as efficiently as possible, maximizing labor efficiency, and minimizing days open. For beef herds, synchronization programs help producers tighten up calving seasons and get better breeding rates than by using bull breeding alone. "AgriLabs is proud to have introduced cloprostenol, the most widely used prostaglandin in the world, to the US market. Cloprostenol's proven effectiveness in the field and long half-life makes estroPLAN convenient to use in any prostaglandin program." Dr. Ehrenzweig continued, "Cloprostenol is the world's leading luteolytic agent, proven in its ability to effectively manipulate the luteal cycle for improved reproductive management; Veterinarians can also rely on estroPLAN to terminate mismating pregnancies and to treat conditions like pyometra, chronic endometritis, mummified fetus, and luteal cysts."

Veterinarians may order estroPLAN in both 20 ml (5 dose) and 100ml (50 dose) sizes from their animal health distributor.
