Make ultrasounding and preg-checking easier with two rugged, portable ultrasound units from ReproScan. Designed specifically for bovine reproductive use, the 3.3-lb., splash-proof unit comes with a 6-hour lithium ion battery and works with a wide range of viewing devices.
The XTC model’s 4.0 MHz convex rectal probe boasts a field of view five times larger than a traditional linear rectal probe, allowing for more rapid pregnancy diagnosis. It fits in the “ReproArm,” a 32-in. extension arm that allows for “arms-free” pregnancy testing.
Meanwhile, the XTL unit features a high-resolution 6.5 MHz linear rectal probe that can be used for all “arm-in” cow scanning. This includes early pregnancy diagnosis, fetal sexing and ovarian structure observations.

PYRAMID 3 + PRESPONSE SQ is the latest in Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc.’s (BIVI) PYRAMID + PRESPONSE line, which features respiratory protection in a single dose. The vaccine aids calves under stress from weaning, shipping and commingling, and targets key diseases without the unnecessary additional stress on the immune system due to extra additional handling. Among the features of PYRAMID 3 + PRESPONSE SQ are:
DuPont Pioneer’s online Pioneer Inoculant Value Calculator allows livestock producers to easily calculate the overall value of forage inoculants. By providing 10 answers on the crop, storage system, feeding rates, market prices, etc., the program depicts the economic returns of various inoculant options, outputting three main values of inoculant choice:
Pfizer Animal Health announces approval for two additional base-of-ear locations for subcutaneous administration in beef and dairy cattle for EXCEDE® (ceftiofur crystalline free acid) Sterile Suspension. The new locations are in addition to the existing base of ear “toward the opposite eye” approved route of administration for all cattle, as well as the “middle third of the ear,” which is approved in beef cattle less than 20 months of age.
The two new techniques are a rostral direction, or toward the eye on the same side of the head; and a ventral administration, which is similar to a normal subcutaneous injection given at the base of the ear. All approved locations require a 13-day meat withdrawal.

This month's new products include ReproScan portable ultrasound units, PYRAMID 3 + PRESPONSE SQ, DuPont Pioneer’s online Pioneer Inoculant Value Calculator and new EXCEDE® administration locations.
Thanks BEEF for introducing us to some great products, you never fail to catch my attention. I am half-way through becoming a veterinarian at a university in Sydney, and my intention is to return to the US and work on the big cattle farms, as well as studying for exams and getting real-life experiences I also have to keep up with new research including cattle ultrasound equipment, new approved medicines and treatments and more. I find the subject fascinating and love to study so am very lucky in that respect.
I personally do not foresee that there would actually be a high demand for a portable ultrasound machine. I mean, when people wish to check their pregnancy or abdomen status, I think it is just normal to go to the specific place for a check-up and that is the hospital or a clinic. I am not able to visualize when such a machine would be required offsite. Nonetheless, despite all that, I guess it is indeed a pretty impressive innovation with a compact battery storage compartment to last for quite sometime outdoors.
