RZR Mask

Outdoors sports enthusiasts and agriculturalists can protect their health in dusty conditions with the neoprene RZR Mask. MZR Mask’s N99 carbon-activated, replaceable filters filter out 99.9% of all airborne particles (both gases and solids), plus it’s comfortable and even fits easily inside a helmet. Worn in winter, the RZR Mask allows wearers to breathe air that’s as much as 75° warmer, thus increasing health and safety during outdoor activities in colder climates. And because of its specially designed discharge valves, the mask will not fog eyeglasses. The comfortable machine-washable masks with Velcro straps come in a variety of colors.

Faster mixing

Roto-Mix’s Cyclone Vertical Mixers feature patent-pending, double-flighted twin screw augers that provide thoroughly mixed rations in about half the time of other mixers, the company says. The 740- and 860-cu.-ft.-capacity units are available in trailer, truck or stationary models and operate with a two-speed gearbox for slow speed mixing and high RPM for better cleanout.

New Triangle® name, look

Triangle® vaccines, long-time staples of the Fort Dodge Animal Health vaccine line, have a new look and updated names. Triangle 5 replaces Triangle 4 + Type II BVD. Triangle 10 replaces Triangle 9 + Type II BVD. Both will appear in a bottle featuring a new green label. The green label, which replaces the familiar yellow Fort Dodge Animal Health label, will more closely align the product with the design of the Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica family of products. Despite the name & packaging changes, beef producers will still find the same protection from this killed-virus vaccine.

Mark high-moisture hay

Harvest Tec’s new dye sprayer marking system provides a simple, practical method for identifying areas of high-moisture hay in bales. Working in tandem with its new 500 Series Application Systems, the dye sprayer marking system applies red food-grade dye to indicate sections of high-moisture hay in small or large square bales. The mark allows handlers of baled hay to easily identify and sort it for feeding or storage purposes. The moisture level at which the dye spray is applied can be adjusted from 8% to 76%.
