This past week, at the National County Agricultural Agent Association Conference in Iowa, I attended a training provided by Merck Animal Health where they discussed products that have recently been released by the company.  One of the products discussed was Banamine pour-on for managing both pain and fever control for cattle with foot rot and bovine respiratory disease (BRD).  Cattle producers recognize that when animals are weak, sick, and in pain they also stop eating and drinking, which makes recovery even slower.  This prescription drug can help get animals feeling better and more active so they start drinking and eating again.  Check out the short video to learn more about this unique and innovative product.

When cattle are suffering from fever caused by bovine respiratory disease (BRD) or pain due to foot rot, turn to Banamine Transdermal (flunixin meglumine solution). Banamine Transdermal is the first FDA-approved pour-on for pain control in cattle. It goes to work in a hurry and no injection site lesions means it’s BQA-friendly, too. In this video, learn the simple step-by-step process and see just how easy it is to use.  Merck Animal Health
