Virbac has strengthened its cattle parasiticide range with the launch of Neoprinil, an eprinomectin pour-on solution indicated for use against internal and external parasites in cattle.
Effective against gut and lungworms, mange mites, sucking and chewing lice, horn flies and warbles, Neoprinil is presented in 2.5, 4.5 and 8 litre pack sizes.
The productoffers a one-year stability period once opened and requires no special conditions for storage.
The launch follows the recent introduction of Deltanil, Virbac’s deltamethrin-based pour-on for use against a range of ectoparasites in cattle and sheep. Both products offer a zero-day withdrawal period in milk and can be administered using the company’s award-winning Farmpack and Flexibag, which combine easy application with freedom of movement for the farmer.
Virbac product manager for large animals Brigitte Goasduf said: “A high worm burden can have adverse effects on the herd’s productivity and performance and so it is advisable to ensure infected animals are treated as part of a Herd Health Plan. Eprinomectin is a tried and trusted parasiticide and studies confirm that it can have a positive impact on both milk production and on weight gain. Its zero day withdrawal period is a major benefit for dairy farmers.
“With the launch first of Deltanil and, now, Neoprinil, we are reinforcing our commitment to work with veterinary surgeons and farmers to understand the everyday challenges they face and to provide practical, effective solutions.”
