Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health continues to stay at the forefront of innovation and provide producers with the right tools for disease prevention (such as mastitis). The Company’s Ubroseal® Blue brings confidence of best practice when it comes to sealant administration and removal.
Boehringer Ingelheim, a global leader in animal health, announced that it has updated its Ubroseal® internal teat sealant to Ubroseal® Blue earlier this year. Ubroseal® Blue will be available in selected countries worldwide as part of the Company’s mastitis portfolio.
Ubroseal® Blue joins 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 color that is easy to distinguish from milk during removal.
“The blue paste is a powerful differentiator,” shared Dr. Gerald Behrens, Global Head of Ruminants at Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health. “The addition of a blue color 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.”
Twenty-five percent 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.
