Updated Field Trial Information
To support the captive insurance program, VeriPrime has established an ongoing research program to identify and field test products that economically reduce death loss.
RESEARCH IS BASED UPON FOUR GUIDELINES:
Get the best response possible from the cattle handled. Let them do their job.
Get the most out of the products your veterinarian prescribes and recommends.
Look for available new technology
Work with industry leaders to develop better tools to reduce death loss.

AIP AND CHRONIC OXIDATIVE STRESS INVESTIGATIONS
VeriPrime Research Division cooperated with Omni Animal Health to conduct a 1 year investigation involving over 200,000 head of cattle.
A 1 year investigation revealed that ~50% of acute AIP cases lost clinical signs in <12 hrs after receiving DuoPort Drench ™. Research indicates AIP can be an acute symptom of an abnormal buildup of metabolictoxins. Buildup of toxins increases over the feeding period and is called Chronic Oxidative Stress (COS).
CHRONIC OXIDATIVE STRESS (COS)
A second formulation, included in rations via micro machines, called DuoPort GPX ™ was fed to over 200,000 head. Treated cattle had reduced incidence of AIP and increased ROI from beta agonists. The ROI in heifers improved 21% more than steers. COS reduces intakes, slows growth, and affects heifers more than steers. Heifers had 73% greater oxidative stress than steers (P<.001) when tested on the kill floor.
