REMOTE MANAGING PRODUCTS—Reinke Manufacturing Company, Inc., reintroduces Ontrac, a line of remote management products that offers continuous real-time monitoring and control of irrigation operations.
The Ontrac family now includes Ontrac Radio, Ontrac Satellite Plus and Ontrac Satellite. It can readily integrate into Reinke and non-Reinke machines. Ontrac Radio broadcasts from a base station—home or office computer—and allows users to securely access, control and monitor their irrigation systems using any web-enabled device. Ontrac Satellite Plus and Satellite offer varying degrees of remote management options. Both are designed for areas with poor cell reception where growers are separated great distances from pivots. Both satellite options aren’t dependent on a cell network that may lose signal. For more information, call a local dealer or 866-365-7381 or visit www.reinke.com.
WINDROW DRAPER—Loftness introduces the CropLogix Windrow Draper 30, with 30-foot cutting width, it is designed to be an efficient and dirt-free solution to harvesting corn stover for cattle feed and cellulosic
ethanol. The Windrow Draper 30 allows operators to place two windrows side-by-side, reducing the number of passes needed to bale residue. The unit features an hydraulically driven, 33-inch-wide draper belt design to transfer chopped material to the right-side discharge. It includes flow deflectors and a free-flow tunnel for unrestricted material movement through the machine. To chop residue, the unit is equipped with a computer-balanced rotor and 4.5-inch cupped knives to create a powerful vacuum. The suction lets the unit operate higher off the ground. For more information, call 800-828-7624, or visit www.croplogix.com.
UTILITY TRACTORS—Case IH introduces the Farmall 85C with 75 PTO HP; Farmall 95C with 85 PTO HP; and Farmall 105C with 95 PTO HP. These utility models offer cost-effective performance, and meet emissions standards with Tier 4A engines. The Farmall C models use Tier 4A-compliant Case IH FPT 4-cylinder 3.4-L turbocharged and intercooled engines. The precise electronic metering of fuel with electronic high-pressure common-rail fuel injection improves efficiency and power. For more information, call a local dealer, or visit www.caseih.com.
Web-based tool allows vets to issue VFDs
Elanco announces the availability of FeedLINK, a web-based tool from GlobalVetLINK that makes it quicker and easier for a veterinarian to issue a Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) for use with Pulmotil, an in-feed bovine respiratory disease (BRD) treatment that requires a VFD.
"We are excited to bring a tool to the beef industry that makes issuing and tracking VFDs faster," said Brad Williams, DVM, MBA and Elanco beef technical consultant. "The entire VFD process from creation to signature can be completed within FeedLINK there is no need to worry about security or paperwork management. The system does it all."
Within FeedLINK, a veterinarian can quickly and easily issue VFDs for a producer with multiple cattle locations. Basic information, unique animal sites and feed supplier details for each producer are saved to a veterinarian's profile for quick recall during future use. Built-in calculators also automatically compute totals for dose and feed volume, ensuring accuracy and label compliance.
After an eVFD is created in the system, FeedLINK automatically sends an electronic copy to the feed supplier and producer via email. Automatic reminders are sent to alert the veterinarian when a VFD is about to expire and needs to be renewed for an individual producer.
The process is started by the veterinarian who sets up a password-protected account by going to www.globalvetlink.com or calling GlobalVetLINK directly at 515-817-5703. Once an account is verified by GlobalVetLINK, the veterinarian can issue eVFDs for producers.
