FDA approves injection to treat shipping fever
Norbrook Inc., of Lenexa, Kan., has received Food and Drug Administration approval on a Tandem Pen injection for the cost-effective treatment of penicillin-susceptible micro-organisms associated with bacterial pneumonia (shipping fever complex), upper respiratory infections and blackleg.
Tandem Pen is a syringeable, easy to re-suspend, combination of sterile penicillin G benzathine and penicillin G procaine that provides beef producers with a Beef Quality Assurance friendly subcutaneous (SC) route of injection, according to Norbrook officials.
Beef producers have a choice with this combination penicillin-based product to help treat and offset the production costs associated with bacterial pneumonia associated with Streptococcus spp., Actinomyces pyogenes and Staphylococcus aureus and upper respiratory infections associated with Actinomyces pyogenes. The product is also approved for effective treatment against blackleg caused by the gram-positive bacterium Clostridium chauvoei.
Tandem Pen should be administered to beef cattle at 2 milliliter per 150-pound body weight via subcutaneous injection only. Tandem Pen is available without prescription in multi-dose 100 mL, 250 mL and 500 mL vials. Producers should observe label directions and withdrawal times.

Cable theft deterrent product offered by irrigation company
Valley Irrigation, Valley, Neb., is adding the Proof Positive Span Cable to its line of cable theft deterrent products.
Agricultural irrigation equipment is particularly vulnerable to copper theft. Thieves can grab long spans of cable from unattended center pivots and escape undetected. Stolen span cable immediately cuts power to the pivot, stopping irrigation and potentially ruining crops. Repairs can cost thousands of dollars and repeated incidents can jeopardize insurance coverage.
One of the biggest challenges in stopping copper cable theft is proving rightful ownership so thieves can be prosecuted. Proof Positive Span Cable, manufactured by Southwire Company and sold through Paige Electric Co., is a traceable, theft deterrent span cable that provides proof of ownership. Valley is the only center pivot irrigation manufacturer offering Proof Positive Span Cable through its dealer network.
Proof Positive Span Cable is manufactured with TraceID codes printed on a tape inside the jacket. Upon sale, ownership data is entered in an online database accessible to recyclers and law enforcement. A bright yellow outer jacket alerts recyclers—and thieves—that this is traceable cable. Recyclers can identify stolen cable and verify ownership in seconds at www.2idcu.com.

Swine vaccine emphasizes efficiency, safety, convenience
Fostera PCV MH—a one-bottle, one-dose combination vaccine, helps protect swine from porcine circovirus-associated disease (PCVAD) and enzootic pneumonia caused by Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae (M. hyo)—is available from Zoetis, Florham Park, N.J. With its one-dose or two-dose protocol, the formulation of Fostera PCV MH offers flexibility to swine managers.
In clinical research studies of the one- and two-dose protocols, Fostera PCV MH has been demonstrated to aid in preventing viremia, lymphoid depletion and colonization of lymphoid tissue caused by PCV2; and as an aid in reducing PCV2 virus shedding and enzootic pneumonia caused by M. hyo. In a real-world, dual-challenge study, Fostera PCV MH helped demonstrate effective control of PCVAD and helped reduce PCV2 viremia in vaccinated pigs, allowing those pigs to sustain favorable growth. Pigs vaccinated with Fostera PCV MH exhibited improved average daily gain up to 4.5 percent (tracked from processing to market) compared with the control group.
While other combination vaccines require two doses or field mixing, the one-bottle formulation of Fostera PCV MH allows the one-dose protocol or the flexibility of a two-dose protocol. For healthy pigs three weeks of age or older, Fostera PCV MH is licensed for administration in either of two ways: a single 2 milliliter intramuscular (IM) dose, or two 1 mL IM doses spaced two weeks apart.
