"Proper Planning Prevents Pitifully Poor Performance" Says BI's Dr Tony Moravec on Parasite Control

Thu, 27 Jul 2017 13:23:24 CDT




In a merger with Sanofi, that has made Boehringer-Ingelheim now the second-largest animal health company in the world, the Ingelheim, Germany based pharmaceutical company has absorbed the Merial brand’s line of parasite-control products. BI’s Professional Service Vet Dr. Tony Moravec, says the merger is a wonderful marriage of two companies that really complement each other. He told Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays in a recent interview, that this strategic swap of products will help BI better serve US beef cattle producers control parasites and improve profits.


“Parasites are a year-round problem,” he said. “If you’re in the great State of Oklahoma, you’re dealing with parasites pretty much habitually. So, work with your vet to create a protocol and a plan to figure out what parasites are affecting your cattle and which products match up well against those parasites.”


Moravec explains there is certainly economic advantages to planning ahead and pairing the right products with your specific problem. He says BI continues to offer great legacy products that have proven their value, like the grandfather of all endectocides, Ivomec. He says Apprenez, an excellent pour on with the same active ingredient as the “game-changing” Longrange, is available also.


“You get season-long control with a single injection and that really has changed the way protocols are made and the way guys have approached their cattle and worming,” Moravec said. “We’ve got to think about how we’re spending our money to maximize our pounds - in this day and age when every pound is a dollar spent.”


Listen to Hays speak with Moravec about how having a plan for parasite control in your herd can help improve your bottom line, on today’s Beef Buzz.
