Thermacell Mosquito Repellants

Wednesday, May 31st, 2023

Powered by a single AAA battery, the device emits allethrin, a synthetic version of an insect-repelling chemical found in chrysanthemums. This odorless and silent repellent provides users with a safe and easy way to protect themselves from pesky mosquitos without having to apply sprays or lotions.

The device is small and lightweight, making it highly portable and easy to use. It also comes with a range of different accessories such as wall mounts, hanging straps, clip-on adapters, and more which make it easier for users to install the device wherever they need it most. Additionally, the product is designed with durability in mind so it can withstand varying types of weather and exposure.

Furthermore, unlike aerosols, Thermacell refills can last up to four hours before needing replacement, meaning users don’t have to worry about continuously applying sprays or lotions during their outdoor activities.

Over-the-Counter Livestock Antibiotics to Require Prescription

Wednesday, May 31st, 2023

over-the-counter livestock antibiotics Those used to buying over-the-counter livestock antibiotics at the local feed store will be required, as of June 11, to obtain a prescription before purchase.

What is the new rule?

The Food and Drug Administration recommends manufacturers of medically important antimicrobial drugs that continue to be available over the counter and are approved for use in animals, both companion and food-producing, regardless of delivery mechanism, to voluntarily bring these products under veterinary oversight or prescription marketing status.

By June 11, labels of the remaining over-the-counter antibiotics for livestock use will be required to read: “Caution: Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian,” and the purchaser must have a prescription or drug order to buy it.

What antibiotics does this affect?

Prescription-only items will include injectable tylosin, injectable and intramammary penicillin, injectable and oral oxytetracycline, sulfadimethoxine and sulfamethazine, gentamicin, cephapirin and cephapirin benzathine intramammary tubes. 

How and where can these items be purchased after the rule goes into effect?

Individuals with veterinary-client-patient relationships, VCPR, may purchase antibiotics directly from their veterinarian or from a distributor with the vet’s prescription.

What constitutes a VCPR?

Three requirements must be met:

(1) The veterinarian has assumed the responsibility for making clinical judgments regarding the health of the animal and the need for medical treatment, and the client has agreed to follow the veterinarian’s instructions.

(2) The veterinarian has sufficient knowledge of the animal to initiate at least a general or preliminary diagnosis of the animal’s medical condition. This means that the veterinarian has recently seen and is personally acquainted with the keeping and care of the animal by examining the animal or by medically appropriate and timely visits to the premises where the animal is kept.

(3) The veterinarian is readily available or has arranged emergency coverage and follow-up evaluation in the event of adverse reactions or the failure of the treatment regimen.

What’s your advice to livestock owners without a VCPR?

Producers who already have a VCPR in place and purchase their animal health products through their veterinary office or through other distributors under an existing prescription system will likely notice little change. However, this may have significant impacts on how the livestock owners can access antibiotic therapy for their animals, so contact your local veterinarian as soon as possible.

Are there any specific instructions that should be given to livestock show exhibitors?

Livestock exhibitors, like all producers in animal agriculture, are responsible for understanding animal treatment regulations. For junior shows, students complete the “Quality Counts” quality-assurance curriculum that stresses the importance of VCPR.

What health/medical items can livestock owners continue to purchase over the counter?

Most vaccines, dewormers, injectable and oral nutritional supplements, ionophores, pro/prebiotics and topical nonantibiotic treatments will not require a veterinary prescription. However, there are some exceptions. Always read the label.

Below is a list of products that are impacted by the new law effective June 11, 2023.

Optimize Cattle Mineral Consumption for Each Season

Monday, February 13th, 2023

Deciding what cattle mineral to feed doesn’t need to be daunting. A quality balanced mineral year-round is the first step to ensuring your herd gets the nutrients they need. Then, you can get more specialized with what you provide your herd based on different factors like the time of year, reproductive needs of your herd and forage quality. 

Types of Mineral Supplements:

Optimize Mineral Consumption for Each Season. Purina Wind and Rain Cattle Minerals.All Season Mineral – a mineral and vitamin supplement for cattle on pasture designed to correct mineral deficiencies of the available forage in highly palatable, weather-resistant granular form. Can be fed year-round, January through December for spring and fall calving. 

High Magnesium Mineral – mineral and vitamin supplement designed for cattle grazing lush pastures. A unique manufacturing process ensures more consistent intake and adequate levels of magnesium. Feed March and April for spring and fall calving. 

Fly Control Mineral – contains Altosid (IGR)for the breeding prevention of horn flies in the manure of treated cattle. Also, provides a balanced mineral and vitamin supplement with large particle size and special formulation to keep the mineral from absorbing water and blowing out of the feeder. Can be fed May through October for spring and fall calving. 

ProCycle Mineral – designed to optimize reproductive performance through trace mineral nutrition using a sulfate-free combination of organic and inorganic trace mineral sources. Wind and Rain ProCycle supports cow health, reproductive performance and nutrient absorption during breeding, gestation and lactation. Can be fed April and May for spring calving, and December and January for fall calving.

Cattle Mineral Considerations & Tips

Monday, February 6th, 2023

When making a cattle mineral selection decision, work with your Purina dealer to think through these additional considerations based on your herd’s specific needs: 

Purina Beyond the Bag. Purina Wind and Rain Mineral ProductsSeasonality: Spring calving cows have different nutrition requirements than fall calving cows. Also, spring grass is lusher and may warrant providing additional magnesium to limit grass tetany in the herd. 

Fly Control: How far north or south you’re located can make a big difference on when to start and stop feeding Purina Wind and Rain fly Control mineral. A good rule is to feed 30 days before the last spring frost through 30 days after the last fall frost. 

Breeding Management: More intensive breeding systems like artificial insemination and embryo transfer require the herd to be in a better shape reproductively. Providing a mineral with higher trace mineral bioavailability, such as Purina Wind and Rain ProCycle mineral, is advised in these situations to meet their needs. 

Bags versus Tubs: You can choose between Wind and Rain loose bagged mineral or Wind and Rain mineral tubs. Loose bags are easier to handle and offer more flexibility in delivery to the cattle. Mineral tubs often require less labor and provide more consistent intakes. It all comes down to personal preference.

February Garden Tips

February Garden Tips

February Garden Tips Keep in mind that the average last freeze for North Texas area is not until mid-March. Even so, many plants normally begin to show Keep in mind that the average last freeze for North Texas area is not until mid-March. Even so, many plants normally begin to show signs of growth in February, which makes it the perfect time, to get outside and work in the yard.

Pruning is both an art and a necessary maintenance function. Most trees and shrubs can be lightly pruned at any time; however mid-winter is generally the best time for major pruning.

Summer flowering trees and shrubs should be pruned before buds begin to swell for Spring. Generally they bloom on new growth; examples are crape myrtle, butterfly bush, spiraea and honeysuckle. If those seed heads on crepe myrtles bother you, remove them this month. Just clip back the ends of the branches, do not destroy the beauty of the gracefully sculptured trunks by severe pruning. Please never top a crape myrtle.

Spring flowering plants such as azalea, Carolina jessamine, wisteria, forsythia, and quince should not be pruned until after the blooms are spent.

February is the best time for pruning most roses. Remove any old and diseased canes then cut the remaining canes back by 50%. Make your cuts above a bud that faces away from the center of the plant.

Early to mid-February marks the time to apply a pre-emergent herbicide for lawns. These products kill germinating seed. A second application may be needed in late May or early June. Remember that the best defense against lawn weeds is a healthy, thick turf resulting from good management.

Trim back perennials and ornamental grasses before the new growth appears in Spring. Clean up around plants and mulch well to protect.

Thinking about a spring garden? Look for onion sets and seed potatoes, they arrive early. By planting early, plants will be off to a better start and can become adjusted before the stresses of summer arrive.
