Iowa cattle producers have a chance to support the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association through the Merck Animal Health “Cartridges for Cash” program. The program now includes Revalor®-XS, in addition to Ralgro®.
The Iowa Cattlemen’s Foundation will receive $1 for every Revalor-XS cartridge and 50 cents for every Ralgro cartridge collected. Last year Merck Animal Health donated $9,000 to help the Iowa Cattlemen’s Foundation provide educational opportunities for Iowa youth.
Iowa producers and veterinarians are encouraged to save their used Ralgro and Revalor-XS cartridges and bring them to the Iowa Cattle Industry Leadership Summit on December 10. The individual and county collecting the most cartridges will be recognized during the summit.
Joanne Tupper, Chairperson of the Iowa Cattlemen’s Foundation said, “Thanks to the continued support from producers and veterinarians, Merck Animal Health and the Iowa Cattlemen’s Foundation are able to enrich youth educational development and increase educational programs across the state.”
