This session will introduce the new health-directed microbial strategy, Strateris™ ECL from United Animal Health. It will include an overview of the results of United’s nationwide surveillance program evaluating the pathogen loads across the major dairy-producing regions in the US as well as by stage of lactation. The session will also review the results of several case studies as well as the overall meta-analysis of the herds that have evaluated Strateris™ ECL from across the country, including some that have been feeding the product for over two years. Members of the United Animal Health research and technical service teams will be in attendance to answer any questions related to our pathogen and microbial evaluation technologies and programmed feeding approach.
