“This year, Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. cattle division embarks on a new path. We are making a commitment to be focused on disease prevention, because Prevention Works,” says Colin Meyers, executive director, U.S. cattle business and process excellence at Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc.

“In the production animal side of the business, we understand that preventing diseases is the absolute, best thing we can do. And that is for the animal’s well-being, certainly looking at it from our customer’s perspective and, most importantly, looking at it from the consumer’s perspective,” Meyers says.

Producers of meat and milk are more focused than ever to meet the changing needs and demands of consumers, while being good animal caretakers. Prevention Works is Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc.’s commitment to helping producers meet those demands while still turning a healthy profit.

“Regardless if you’re a beef producer or a dairy producer, prevention just makes sense. If I can prevent disease in the long run, I can make more money. The goal for any herd, ultimately, should be to prevent disease” says Dr. Craig Jones, Senior Associate Director, Cattle Professional Services with Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc.

Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. cattle division has incorporated, and will continue to incorporate, the Prevention Works philosophy into all areas of its business.
