When your whole world depends on productivity, every little bit counts
A healthy cow supplemented with Posilac® produces an average of [10 more pounds] of milk per day.1 In addition to other sound production practices, dairy producers supplement cows with Posilac® to help produce a little more milk while using fewer resources.
Adding Posilac® to your dairy management program allows healthy cows supplemented with Posilac® to produce an average of 10 more pounds of milk per day.1 This added productivity reduces your cost of production by [3%-5%, or approximately $0.50-$1.50/cwt.2 When you look at how milk production impacts your bottom line, Posilac® can make a world of difference.
Posilac® response begins with first supplementation and is maintained throughout lactation
• A healthy cow supplemented with Posilac® produces an average of 10 more pounds of milk per day.1
• Response is consistent and sustained, lactation after lactation.1
• Herd production volume will continue to fluctuate, but the Posilac® response remains consistent.2

Increased productivity that impacts the future of your world.
For more than 20 years, Posilac® has enabled farmers to produce safe, nutritious milk that is affordable and is also produced in a [more environmentally responsible way].3
• All major global dairy importers allow the import and sale of US dairy products and meat from cows supplemented with Posilac®4
• Posilac® is the most researched animal product ever to be approved by the FDA4
• Regulatory authorities, together with their scientific assessment bodies in more than 50 countries, including Australia, Canada, the Commission of the European Communities (Committee for Veterinary Medicinal Products), South Korea, and the United States, have determined that milk and meat from cows supplemented with rbST are safe for consumption by people of all ages4. A thriving dairy means everything to dairy producers and their families. What their farms produce is also vital to our future.
• The World Health Organization and FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization) have attested the product safety and his importance for the world's population6,7
rbST is a valuable management tool for use in dairy production to improve productive efficiency and to have less negative effects on the environment than conventional dairying. 5
