Fifth Lab to Test for PI in Calves Opened by Texas Testing Company

Mon, 27 Apr 2009 5:51:35 CDT

Gold Standard Labs, the leading private diagnostic laboratory for testing cattle to detect those persistently infected (PI) with Bovine Viral Diarrhea (BVD) virus, this week opened its fifth facility – this one located in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The other four labs are located in Hereford, Shiner and Schwertner, Texas, and in Garden City, Kansas.
“Our decision to establish a lab east of the Mississippi was, in part, a response to the needs of feed lot owners on the High Plains,” explains Chris McClure, manager of Gold Standard Labs. “The Bowling Green area is central to many cow-calf operations. By locating a lab here cattle can be tested prior to shipping on to the stocker or feeder phase. This should benefit the cattle industry by minimizing the spread of BVD.”
The new lab is located at 1990 Louisville Road, Unit 6, in Bowling Green. The lab manager is Sandy Grant, and she can be contacted at gslbowlinggreen@att.net or by calling (270) 846-2073.
The new lab can test cattle of all ages, says McClure. “By testing to detect PI individuals, our labs help identify those animals, in order to isolate them – thus safeguarding the health of the rest of the herd and increasing profits.”
Founded in 2005 in Hereford, Texas, Gold Standard Labs has earned a reputation throughout the cattle industry for its accurate test results, timely reporting and excellent customer service. The home laboratory is located at 205 W. Fourth Street, Suite 103, Hereford, Texas. Click here for their website to learn more about their testing services.
