Cepravin@ - Product Overview

By: Msd Animal Health  05-Apr-2012

TalkStraight has proved hugely successful in the past and is now in its third year running. This year we decided to make it bigger and better by increasing the number of farmer articles and making them more relevant to you by producing a North and a South Island edition.

In this year’s TalkStraight editions, you might be surprised how much extra income you could gain:
• By reducing cell counts even further.
• And by lessening the overall impact of mastitis on your farm.
The most well known costs of mastitis relate to milk quality, treatment of clinical cases, and culling and deaths. But mastitis can also impact your staff, animals, calving, season length and management options – which can have a significant impact on your profitability.

You’ll also find advice on how to make the most of your milk quality consultation and the differences between, and instructions for, partial and full syringe insertion. There are many more stories from farmers about dry off, vets from your area talking about issues relevant to you, and a Dairy Womens Network update for each edition.

The TalkStraight Newspaper will be distributed to you in the post.


Only available under Veterinary Authorisation. ACVM No. A3322.

Metricure® - Product Overview

Cows that are likely to have endometritis are those that had a dead calf, an assisted calving, retained membranes, vaginal discharge or a metabolic disease such as milk fever. Around 10% of cows may be prevented from getting back in calf early because of endometritis. The good news is that it’s simple for your vet to treat these cows with Metricure®. This affects fertility, and reduces days in milk – as well as income.


Vivitonin® - Product Overview

Propentofyllin exerts a multi-site action that results in vasodilation and reduced blood viscosity to increase blood flow to the internal organs, especially the brain, heart and skeletal muscles. All of these symptoms can be an indication of early senile changes or poor systemic oxygenation. Vivitonin can go a long way to alleviate this age related deterioration.
