Canada Approves Phibro Solution for Beef Cattle


V-Max™ (Virginiamycin) medicated feed additive has received regulatory approval by the Veterinary Drugs Directorate (VDD), Health Canada for use in beef cattle. V-Max is approved for the reduction of incidence of liver abscesses in cattle fed in confinement, which is a condition that affects the well-being of an estimated one in five feedlot cattle in Canada.

Liver abscesses negatively impact cattle health and well-being, causing significant losses to cattle producers. When V-Max was included in feed, cattle showed significant reductions in liver abscesses in recent commercial feedlot trials in Canada.

V-Max is part of Phibro Animal Health’s commitment to providing customers with high quality solutions that help optimize animal health and wellness.
