ENHANCING QUALITY OF FOOD AND QUALITY OF LIFE
At MSD Animal Health, we make products that support sustainable meat and dairy, to provide
- Economic value to our customers. Our products help farmers provide consumers better meat and dairy – and more of it – at less cost.
- Environmental protection for the earth. By helping farmers grow more meat and dairy with less, we conserve resources for future generations.
- Social benefit to everyone. Our products help livestock farmers bring delicious, healthy meat and dairy products to your family’s table.
PREVENTING AND TREATING ANIMAL DISEASE
Our veterinary medicines keep high quality animals healthy and productive, so you can enjoy safe, high quality meat and milk.
- Vaccines protect cattle and sheep from respiratory disease
- Dewormers and insect repellents protect animals from parasites and pests (flies, ticks, etc)
- Localized antibiotics treat mastitis quickly so cows can produce milk again
ENHANCING REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH
Our reproductive health treatments help cows and sheep give birth to healthy babies and enable the young animals to survive and grow. These reproductive health solutions include:
- Fertility treatments to help animals conceive
- Solutions for common diseases in neonatal animals, so they can grow to maturity
PRODUCING MORE AND BETTER FOOD WITH LESS
We make feed supplements to improve the ability of cattle to absorb nutrients from feed. This raises the growth rate to produce more meat and dairy with fewer resources.
- Our products also help beef, lamb, and dairy farmers reduce their need for water, land, energy, grain, and fuel.
