JBS – OvuGel®
OvuGel® is a new animal drug recently approved by the FDA for the synchronization of time of insemination in weaned sows to facilitate a single, fixed-time artificial insemination. OvuGel® is administered intravaginally early in the morning of day 4 post weaning. A single insemination is performed early on day 5 post-weaning, approximately 24 hours post-treatment, eliminating the need for estrus detection. The OvuGel® treatment is needle-free using a vaginally dosed gel delivery system.

Osborne is pleased to introduce a revolutionary new ad-lib sow feeder: the Osborne Pivot Feeder™. This unique feeder was designed from a sow’s perspective. Interaction with the feeder occurs at the feed bowl, with the lever’s paddle, not at the main feeder body. Sows use natural head movements to “pivot” the lever without having to lift their head. An exclusive lever arm, available in multiple sizes and configurations, agitates feed keeping it fresh and minimizing feed accumulation. The Pivot Feeder works well with wet/dry feeding, is easy to clean, built of 304 stainless steel, and is available with an optional 25-lb. capacity plastic hopper kit.

Big Dutchman - AIRPro-Tec PRRS Filtration
AIRPro-Tec filtration is a modular PRRS capturing filtration system with integrated cooling for swine buildings. Unlike con-ventional filtration procedures, AIRPro-Tec operates under positive pressure ventilation, which will not allow any fresh air into the barns without being filtered. The filter units are simply placed on the outside of the building and connected by an air duct with fan and shutter blowing filtered air into the attic of the house. Cooling can be operated separately. An integrated control unit monitors the system and regulates proper ventilation pressure.
