New in 2011- ZACHTRAN Beats Sales Expectations as a BRD Solution

New in 2011- ZACHTRAN Beats Sales Expectations as a BRD Solution

Earlier in 2011- Merial Animal Health released a new antibiotic vaccine for use against Bovine Respiratory Disease- ZACHTRAN. Dr. Bruce Nosky of Merial says early sales of ZACHTRAN have been excellent, well beyond initial goals. Dr. Nosky believes that as producers have tried this new tool in the batle against BRD- they find it very effective and are quickly making it a control and treatment option of choice.

In a news release from the company, Dr. Nosky, who is the Manager, Merial's Large Animal Veterinary Services talks about the studies that have shown the effectiveness of ZACHTRAN- "In field studies, cattle treated with ZACTRAN showed a rapid improvement in BRD clinical signs. More than three-quarters of the cattle with a fever had a significant decrease in temperature within 24 hours.6 And the majority of those cattle treated with ZACTRAN remained healthy throughout the 10-day study."

"Dr. Nosky adds that in additional field trials for BRD control, the majority of lightweight, high-risk cattle that received ZACTRAN to control BRD showed significantly less disease during the 10-day study compared to non-treated cattle."

At the recent National Association of Farm Broadcasters annual convention- we caught up with Dr. Nosky to talk about the success here in 2011 of the rollout of ZACHTRAN. Dr. Nosky joins us on the Beef Buzz as we talk about this BRD solution. Click on the LISTEN BAR below to hear our conversation.
