Boehringer Ingelheim, specialist in animal health has updated its Ubroseal internal teat sealant to Ubroseal Blue
Ubroseal Blue to be available in selected countries worldwide as part of the company’s mastitis portfolio.
Ubroseal Blue joined Ubrostar and Bovikalc dry as part of the Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health’s dry cow management portfolio to prevent new intramammary infections during the dry period. It provides the easiest and most hygienic application and the only one to feature a visible blue colour that is easy to distinguish from milk during removal.
Dr. Gerald Behrens, global head of Ruminants at Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health, said, “The blue paste is a powerful differentiator. The addition of a blue colour to Ubroseal is a unique and exclusive feature that enhances farmers’ dry cow management practices. As it’s easier to distinguish the sealant from milk, producers no longer have to worry about unnecessarily sending a cow to the hospital pen.”
About 25% of quarters remain open one week after dry-off, creating an opportunity for infection to occur. Using teat sealants is a very effective way to reduce the risk of new infection during the dry period.
The lives of animals and humans are interconnected in deep and complex ways. We know that when animals are healthy, humans are healthier too. Across the globe, our 10,000 employees are dedicated to delivering value through innovation, thus enhancing the well-being of both, stated Behrens.
