FERA Diagnostics and Biologicals – Booth 15

FERA D&B is pleased to introduce FerAppease ® , a unique analogue of the natural occurring Maternal Bovine Appeasing Substance (MBAS) used to improve cattle welfare, animal health and performance, providing more profitability for ranchers, backgrounders/feedyards, and dairy farmers.  

All ingredients in FerAppease are FDA approved under GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe). The product is applied topically. Operators spray FerAppease on the back of the animal’s head and just above the muzzle. Research shows FerAppease minimizes the animal’s perception of danger, allowing it to feel safe and more comfortable during routine management procedures, such as weaning, transport, calving, relocation, and much more.  

During clinical trials, treated animals in all stages displayed enhanced performance and immunity. Researchers found FerAppease-treated weaned calves were noticeably calmer and explored their surroundings as they has been weaned for months. In addition, the well-known post-weaning body weight shrinkage disappeared, with treated animals having an extra 36 pounds compared to control calves at 45 days post weaning.  

FerAppease helps precondition weaned calves by reducing stress (lowering cortisol levels), increasing dry matter intake, increasing response to vaccination, and improving weight gain. Ranchers saw an extra 20 to 50 pounds per head, allowing them to sell more live wright. Whereas, steers receiving MBAS displayed illness symptoms sooner than avers, allowing them to receive prompt treatment. Steers were more responsive to antibiotics, reducing mortality rates and decreasing treatment by nearly 50 percent.  

FerAppease was also evaluated on adult dairy cows. At the beginning of Stage 1 parturition, cows were randomly given a single dose of FerAppease or a placebo. The treated group saw a notable decrease in incidences of retained placenta, mastitis, metritis and lameness.  

FerAppease treatments for weaned calves through adult cattle will cost $3 per head and for calves $1.50 per head. FerAppease use doesn’t require a veterinarians’ prescription or a Veterinary Feed Directive plan, and there are no meat withholding requirements.
