The new team members provide industry-leading swine expertise to
integrators, producers, and veterinarians responsible for managing swine herd
Commitment to the industry
introduction of Baytril 100 into the swine market is important because it gives
producers and veterinarians access to the unique mode of action of the
fluoroquinolone class of antibiotics,” say Dr. Cary Christensen, Senior
Director, Food Animal Products Business Unit at Bayer Animal Health. “The
addition of these three swine experts will also be of tremendous value to our
customers and are a major part of our continuing commitment to the industry.”
Joining Bayer Animal Health are Jim Lovin and Mark Hux as Technical
Sales Specialists and Dr. Andy Holtcamp as a member of the Veterinary Technical
Services group. Lovin has more than 25 years of industry experience, both as a
swine product sales representative and as an owner and manager of a farrow to
finish operation, bringing hands-on knowledge of upper Midwest swine operations.
Hux specialises in working with large integrators from a product sales
and support role and has been working in the industry for more than a decade in
the eastern and southeastern portions of the United States.
Holtcamp, a published researcher and industry event presenter, has nearly 20
years of swine industry experience, ranging from owning and managing a farrow to
finish unit to serving as the staff veterinarian and supervisor of a research
farm for Iowa Select Farms, Inc.
“We are thrilled to add such a high level of swine expertise to
the Bayer Animal Health team,” says Todd Firkins, Livestock Category Manager.
“Baytril 100 is a tremendously important new product for the swine market, and
having the support of a world-class swine team will help swine producers and
veterinarians better manage SRD.”
Baytril 100, a lifesaving
antimicrobial, is bactericidal — killing four major SRD-causing bacteria:
Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae, Pasteurella multocida, Haemophilus parasuis and
Streptococcus suis. Baytril 100 works fast and starts killing bacteria within a
matter of minutes.
Furthermore, Baytril 100 is concentration-dependent,
not time-dependent, delivering peak therapeutic drug concentrations via a single
injection. It has been the choice of bovine veterinarians and beef cattle
producers for more than 10 years, and is the largest-selling, single-dose
antibiotic in its class.
