St. Joseph, MO (April 23, 2010)… AgriLabs CEO, Steve Schram, today announced the signing of a long-term contract with Dr. Jerry Payne, American Animal Health CEO, to market American Animal Health's high quality pasteurella vaccines.
Dr. Payne remarked, "AgriLabs is recognized as an industry leader in providing products and technical expertise for veterinarians and producers to most effectively manage their beef and dairy herds. We are proud that our products will continue to support AgriLabs core cattle vaccine capabilities."
AgriLabs recently acquired the exclusive sales, marketing and distribution rights for the Pulmo-Guard family of pasteurella cattle vaccines: one-dose Pulmo-Guard PHM-1, Pulmo-Guard PH-M and Express 5-PHM from Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc.
"It is essential that we maintain the availability of these well regarded vaccines for veterinarians and the cattle industry," said Mr. Schram. "With ongoing uncertainties created by industry consolidations, veterinarians and producers should understand that AgriLabs will continue to supply them with the pasteurella products they rely on," he continued.

Cattle producers and veterinarians who have come to rely on these products can be assured that AgriLabs will continue to provide them with these high quality pasteurella vaccines well into the future."
