LVI introduces Dairy Bedded Pack Composter
The LVI Dairy Bedded Pack Composter provides dairymen with a reliable composting machine for their bedded packs. Creating a soothing environment for a cow is an essential factor for milk production. Easily attached to a tractor via the three-point hitch, this machine pulverizes and churns the bedded pack into soft, comfortable conditions.

By composting the bedded pack, the farmer can minimize manure storage expenses by extending the life of the bedding material. The company is now offering the composter in two models representing two widths. Weighing in at 1,800 pounds is the DBPC 750 with a 7.5-foot working width.

The DBPC 1100 weighs 3,500 pounds and features an 11-foot working width, accommodating larger holding pens. Both models are standard with front-mounted ripper shanks which allow for a deeper and more aggressive composting action, tilling up to 19 inches deep. Recommended power-takeoff horsepower is about 10 per foot of working width.

McLanahan releases bedding dryer for fast, efficient sand or manure drying
The McLanahan bedding dryer is ideal for dairy operations bedding on reclaimed sand or manure solids. High temperatures in the dryer quickly and efficiently reduce moisture and kill pathogens responsible for causing mastitis and poor milk quality.

Field tests have shown the bedding dryer produces sand with a moisture content as low as 2 percent, making it ideal for dairies struggling with a chronic subclinical mastitis problem or stubbornly high SCC. Sand is processed at a rate of up to 90 TPH and manure at 18 TPH, eliminating the labor and time requirements of air-drying. The material can be reused almost instantly for an abundant, sustainable supply of clean, dry bedding.

FEED AND NUTRITION

BaciFlex covers against clostridia
BaciFlex is a family of regionally customized, non-medicated direct-fed microbials containing multiple strains of Bacillus subtilis to alleviate the threats posed by clostridia. It is specifically formulated to provide the optimal coverage based on the clostridial strains identified through Papillon’s detailed sampling, screening and profiling procedure.

Its cutting-edge Bacillus technology defends against toxigenic and non-toxigenic clostridia. It reduces the frequency of digestive upsets and deaths on dairies and provides nutritional benefits that improve ruminal efficiency and milk production. Research shows it increases both energy-corrected milk and energy-corrected dry matter efficiency in lactating cows. BaciFlex-Calf has been proven to increase pre- and post-weaning performance of dairy calves.

Bio-Vet releases QuadriCal AC
Bio-Vet Inc. has released a new formulation of calcium boluses: QuadriCal AC, an all-calcium bolus. Four types of calcium – calcium chloride, calcium propionate, calcium lactate and calcium sulfate – provide for rapid, intermediate and sustained calcium release. Each three-bolus feeding contains a minimum of 54 grams of total calcium.

Studies have shown over 40 percent of all cows and over 50 percent of second-plus-lactation cows in the U.S. have low blood calcium around calving time. Research indicates a minimum of 50 grams of calcium is needed to significantly raise blood calcium levels. This is the newest addition to a complete line of calcium products, and it is available in an 80-count box of individually packaged feedings.

Globimax Colostrum fills the immune gap
At birth, a calf has a poorly developed immune system; the placenta does not allow the transfer of antibodies from the mother to the fetus during pregnancy. Therefore, it is of vital importance to provide young animals with antibodies by feeding colostrum. The frequent problem: poor colostrum quality (low concentration of antibodies) resulting in immunoglobulin deficiency.

Specialized egg proteins can be used to fill the immune gap as egg antibodies (IgY) can serve as an immunological support for calves. Globimax Colostrum contains, besides other valuable components, specific egg proteins. It supports the calf in case of insufficient colostrum quality or quantity.

A trial conducted in Germany evaluating weight gain of calves that received normal colostrum or enhanced colostrum showed 17.8 percent higher daily gain in the enhanced colostrum group (999 grams) compared to the control group (848 grams) (p less than or equal to 0.0001), suggesting calves receiving it start life in better condition.

RumiLife CAL24 nutritional supplement
RumiLife CAL24 nutritional supplement is a uniquely formulated calcium supplement that helps promote adequate calcium levels in cows during the first 24 hours after calving and other times associated with calcium deficiency. The product contains highly bioavailable sources of calcium and magnesium to span all areas of calcium regulation.

It contains 100 grams of calcium: a mixture between calcium chloride for immediate release and Calmin, a combination of naturally found seaweed-derived calcium and magnesium, for sustained release. It also contains vitamin D to support active and passive transfer of calcium into the bloodstream.

The boluses are missile-shaped and have a smooth coating so both Jersey and Holstein cows can easily swallow them. The unique components of the nutritional supplement allow producers to feed two boluses consecutively. This breaks the barriers of a 12-hour dose and eliminates the need to catch a cow again to give additional boluses.

MILKING EQUIPMENT

Acu-Polaris from Acumen Detection
Acumen Detection is the first company to bring the power and accuracy of real-time PCR into a simple, easy and user-friendly process. We have introduced a level of consistency in milk quality testing never seen before by taking the guesswork out of interpreting results.

The Acu-Polaris excels in analyzing the toughest samples and helps “see through the clutter” in samples often reported as contaminated or “no growth” with current culture-based systems. Our assay is able to determine the presence of mycoplasma and prototheca in less than three hours. These pathogens require special culture techniques and have very long culture times (seven to 10 days) in current culture-based tests.

Knowing about possible infection quickly gives the producer tighter control of herd health and increases revenues. This is the optimal solution for detecting mastitis-causing pathogens because of its specificity, sensitivity, speed and objectivity.

Find subclinical mastitis with LactiCyte-HD Somatic Cell Counter
Rapidly differentiate “yeast mastitis” (candida) and coliform mastitis (bacterial) with the newly updated LactiCyte-HD Somatic Cell Counter. In less than five minutes, it is possible for the first time to automatically count the number of yeast cells in milk samples while simultaneously determining the total number of somatic cells with reference accuracy. The counter enables you to give proper attention to the economics of milk quality.

The prevalence of yeast mastitis has significantly increased over the past decade (totaling greater than 10 percent in some countries) due to the increased and often loosely monitored use of antibiotics. Traditionally, farm samples must be taken and sent to a lab to be cultured and counted.

This can take days before results are available and proper treatment is implemented. With real-time results, identify subclinical mastitis in just a few minutes and make proactive decisions to treat affected animals in a timely manner.

Calf-Rescue Blankets
Calf-Rescue Blankets help prevent newly born, sick or at-risk calves from suffering life-threatening hypothermia. In addition to reducing heat loss from the animal and enhancing the absorption of available radiation from the sun or heat lamps, the cover will also reduce convective cooling of the animal, and it is waterproof.

The blanket can also be used as a skid to move an animal short distances. The blanket’s inner surface reflects 90 percent of a calf’s body heat back to the calf. The outer surface absorbs 94 percent of solar/heat lamp radiation, further warming the animal.

These are an inexpensive, short-term solution to help a calf get to the stage when it can get to its feet and take milk without assistance.

Inspired from marathon running blankets, rescue blankets for people and reflective mulch technology, these are a life-saver.
