Elanco cattle portfolio embraces the company’s vision of enriching life. Our goal is to be a strong, collaborative and supportive link in the dairy and beef food chain—a food chain that progresses from producer, to co-op, to processor, to retailer and to consumer.
Our innovative technologies offer tools that enable dairy producers to produce wholesome, safe milk. This includes the Vital 90 Days™ which focuses on achieving optimum health for dairy cows.
Elanco is committed to helping veterinarians, nutritionists and dairy farmers with innovative solutions to improve cow health and wellbeing, with a focus on the transition period. The fact is, 60 days prior to calving until 30 days after calving (The Vital 90™ Days) is a time of great risk and vulnerability for every cow in your herd.
During The Vital 90™ Days a cow’s immune system is weakened, opening the door to disease and disorders such as mastitis, metritis and retained foetal membranes, which can compromise her long-term wellbeing and production potential. She also experiences a period of negative energy balance increasing the risk of ketosis and associated diseases, such as displaced abomasum and ovarian dysfunction.
At Elanco, we deliver innovative products and knowledge solutions in the areas of:
Elanco solutions to tackle challenges during The Vital 90™ Days period include diagnostics, monitoring tools and educational materials, as well as products to treat or reduce the incidence of some diseases related to The Vital 90™ Days (mastitis, ketosis). These solutions should be part of a holistic approach based on a partnership between veterinarians and farmers, and you should consult with your Veterinarian about these.
