Healthy Cattle Are Productive Cattle
Cattle constitute one of the major livestock species and are an important economic factor in many countries. The world cattle population is estimated at approximatively 1.5 billion animals, more than 1 billion of them being located in tropical and subtropical countries. In these regions, cattle are exposed to numerous internal and external parasites, which drastically affect their well-being as well as their productivity. Infectious diseases also play an important economic role in cattle production.
Cattle Producers' Needs
Producers around the world raise cattle to produce healthy and nutritious beef and milk. In today’s global food market, cattle producers face many challenges to produce these products at world prices. Disease is one area that can have an impact upon the welfare and productivity of their cattle.
At Novartis Animal Health we strive to respond to cattle producers needs by providing vaccines, parasiticides, pharmaceuticals and on-farm support services to meet their cattle health challenges.
Our associates around the world are passionately committed to producing and supplying animal health products, and services for cattle producers. In many countries, cattle producers use the trusted FASINEX® brands to control liver fluke infections and ACATAK® to treat and prevent tick infestations. In many countries, a broad range of Novartis cattle vaccines are used to prevent disease and sickness in cattle.
