Cattle industry convention shows off new technology

New technology was on display at a cattle industry convention this week.

For one company, the trade show at the National Cattlemen's Beef Association convention was an opportunity to show off a breakthrough development.

SmartVet showed off the Vetgun, a product developed with a partnership with AgriLabs to deliver treatment to cattle for horn flies and lice.

Randy Tosh, vice president of business development for SmartVet, said the product will help producers.

"The Vetgun is a precision engineered device. We knew it had to hold up well for producers in a lot of different scenarios. And so we built a gun that's very robust and reliable. It's powered by CO2, which is a readily available and economical gas source for producers no matter where they live. It provides reliable results in the field in a number of different operating conditions. So what we're trying to do is empower the producer to be able to give that affective horn fly control throughout the season and in doing so save their animals a lot of stress and also contribute to their own bottom line. We're very excited to introduce the Vetgun and the Vetcap to producers from all parts of the country, and all herd sizes, and all different experiences. We think that Vetgun has a place in every farm and ranch in America because this is not a single product-type technology platform, but rather something in which we're going to practice rolling innovation. We'll continue to innovate and add new products to the Vetgun line and make those available as we have regulatory approval," Tosh said.
