Boehringer has announced the launch of Ubroseal Dry Cow 2.6 g intramammary suspension for cattle (Bismuth Subnitrate, heavy), the company's first teat sealant.

Ubroseal is licenced for the prevention of new intramammary infections throughout the dry period. In cows considered likely to be free of sub-clinical mastitis, the product can be used on its own in dry cow management and mastitis control. 

Boehringer's veterinary adviser, Kath Aplin said: "Ubroseal features a flexi-cap to reduce the risk of teat canal damage and its unique longer plunger makes application more ergonomic and significantly easier for the farmer."

The launch coincides with the publication of a statement by an expert group convened by Boehringer1 which recommends the administration of an internal teat sealant at drying off to all cows on all farms.
