1. We are dedicated to providing cost-effective solutions to dairy and beef producers to maximize the health and welfare of their respective productive assets – their dairy and beef calves and their milk producing cows.
- Our First Defense® Tri-ShieldTM product protects newborn dairy and beef calves against the harmful pathogens, E. coli, coronavirus, and rotavirus that can cause bovine enteritis, or calf scours, that can dramatically hinder a calf’s ability to reach its maximum product capacity or cause death.
- Our purified Nisin intramammary treatment, nearing completion of the FDA approval process, will treat subclinical mastitis (infection of the mammary gland) in milk producing cows. Mastitis is the most costly and common disease affecting the dairy industry, with an annual impact of approximately $2 billion.
2. Our products are designed to treat infections in calves and cows without the use of traditional antibiotics used in human healthcare, thereby reducing the amount of antibiotics in the human food chain, that have given rise to incidence of life-threatening human infections from antibiotic-resistant bacteria, commonly known as “superbugs.”
