Help your cows block intramammary infections throughout the dry period with the new UdderLife™ OptiShield™ teat sealant from GENEX. This sterile, antibiotic-free, off-white paste contains 62% bismuth subnitrate in a mineral oil base. While it does not treat clinical or subclinical cases of mastitis already present in a dry cow's mammary system, it does help prevent new cases by serving as a malleable barrier in the teat canal, much like a cow's own keratin plug.
Unlike other teat sealants, this product comes with additional benefits:
› The tube contains minimal air, forming a solid plug seal in the teat’s streak canal.
› The partial insertion tip allows for consistent application and less risk of placing the tip too far inside the teat.
› It’s made in the USA! It’s shipped directly to you from the manufacturing plant located in the USA. There are no backorders or wait times!
As with any product, following proper application procedures are important for best results. Watch as Kim Egan, DVM, explains how you should apply UdderLife™ OptiShield™ teat sealant.
UdderLife™ OptiShield™ teat sealant comes in a 4g tube with 144 tubes per pail – that’s enough to administer to 36 cows. For more information, contact your local GENEX representative or call 888.333.1783.
Procuring your calf care products just got a little easier as GENEX introduced ReMOOV™ horn paste, an easy-to-use caustic paste that inhibits horn growth. This product contains a mixture of calcium hydroxide and potassium hydroxide in an aqueous glycerine gel. Using the paste over other horn growth inhibiting methods means:
› Less stress to the animal
› No expensive equipment
› No bad smell
This new product has even more great features:
› ReMOOV™ horn paste is packaged in a uniquely designed syringe that measures out the perfect amount of paste needed for each horn button.
› The syringe also has a special tip enabling precise application to the horn bud.
"Not only does the syringe make this product easy to administer but it is also less painful to the animal, less stressful for the animal and you, and there is not bad burning smell like there is with hot irons," states Bob East, senior manager of the GENEX herd care line.
ReMOOV™ horn paste is available in 1.6 oz syringes that can disbud approximately 24 animals. They are packaged at six syringes per box.
