Aspen Veterinary Resources Debuts First Environmental Preventative for Mastitis at World Dairy Expo

GREELEY, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aspen Veterinary Resources Ltd. today at the World Dairy Expo introduces
a new product line of stall and feed additives that reduces mastitis in
dairy cows. The revolutionary product line is the first of its kind in
the U.S.

The products, called Easy Cow and Gold Pro Cow, are made with
all-natural carrier ingredients and imprinted with a contrasting
electromagnetic frequency. This creates an opposing force to the
specific frequency created by each pathogen that causes mastitis. The
technology is similar to noise-canceling headphones, which use an
opposing frequency to cancel out noise.

“We are always looking for new, innovative products that provide
effective solutions to our customers, and Easy Cow is one of those
solutions,” said Kevin Pohlman, senior vice president of sales and
marketing for Animal Health International. “Easy Cow is a unique
approach to preventing mastitis, which is the leading cause of milk
loss, and therefore revenue loss, for our dairy customers. It’s good for
herd health and the fiscal health of their operation.”

Easy Cow is applied to bedding to kill 96 percent of the pathogens that
cause mastitis, reducing SCC and leading to higher production. It also
works to increase beneficial bacteria for a better environment. Gold Pro
Cow works similarly once added to food.
