LUTALYSE HighCon injection
Zoetis announces a high-concentration formula of the proven LUTALYSE injection approved for use in dairy and beef cattle. The higher-concentration formula of LUTALYSE HighCon allows for a 2-mL dose. This provides more doses per bottle, meaning fewer bottle changes as well as a quicker, more convenient administration.
LUTALYSE HighCon is the first and only prostaglandin on the market licensed by the FDA for subcutaneous administration in addition to intramuscular administration. This approval allows producers and veterinarians flexible administration options while allowing them to abide by Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) standards. To fit varying herd management needs, LUTALYSE HighCon is available in three bottle sizes: 20 mL, 100 mL and 250 mL. It’s important to note that LUTALYSE HighCon is approved for use in cattle only. LUTALYSE is not for use in horses or swine.

New bale feeder design
Central Welding Co. introduces a new line of affordable bale feeders available in sizes ranging from 7 by 7 feet to 8 by 24 feet, with prices starting under $1,000. These heavy-duty bale feeders will accommodate all sizes of round and large square bales. By integrating fork slots in the frame of the feeders, now you can simply insert your pallet forks or two-prong bale spear and lift the feeder with ease.
A simple slant bar and cradle system ensures that your bales stay centered, and cattle keep their heads in the feeder while eating. The added top boards keep cows from reaching over the top, pulling hay out and dropping it on the ground. Options include bunk floors; silage inserts; a gated end, to make loading with a three-point or truck-mounted spear possible; a metal roof; and even a wagon option for the larger feeders.
