NIGHT VISION FOR COWBOYS WR magazine has been friends with FLIR Systems, Inc. for several years now, and we are happy to be delivering some very exciting news our readers are gonna love! Recently, they rolled out the latest outdoor thermal vision devices featuring the new FLIR Scout TK, the smallest, lightest and most affordable thermal monocular in the Scout series. We can’t keep the best part until last, so here it is; this unit retails at an amazingly affordable $599! Gone are the 4-digit-price-points for pocket thermal imaging! Now a cowboy can own one (well, he has to have a job, of course). The Scout TK offers outdoor enthusiasts the ability to see in thermal at a distance of over 100 yards in total darkness. With more than fi ve hours of battery life, the Scout TK — the fi rst Scout series monocular to offer the ability to store thermal images onboard — allows users to store 1,000 JPEG images or approximately four hours of video. Expanded color palette options make it easier to see warmer objects in cool settings, including White/Black Hot, InstAlert™, red, and Graded Fire, yellow with enhanced detail. The device is rugged, weather-resistant and ergonomically-designed (Editor: I had one in my hands at the SHOT show in Vegas in January, it was hard to put it down and step away from the display case). They also offer enhanced digital processing that delivers the sharpest imagery in the toughest environments. The FLIR Scout TK will begin shipping worldwide in the fi rst quarter of 2016 for $599 and the product can be pre-registered at www.fl ir.com/scouttk. For more information on the Scout III, visit www.fl ir.com/ScoutIII. NEW LABEL CLAIM Zoetis shares our readers’ conviction that providing the highest level of protection against infectious bovine rhinotracheitis (IBR) and bovine viral diarrhea (BVD) viruses is critical, especially for pregnant cattle. Unprotected cows exposed to BVD Types 1 and 2 viruses may experience pregnancy loss or the delivery of weak or BVD persistently infected (PI) calves.1 To help producers further protect the cow herd, BOVI-SHIELD GOLD FP® 5 and BOVI-SHIELD GOLD FP 5 HB products recently earned an additional label claim from the U.S. Department of Agriculture against fetal infection caused by BVD Types 1 and 2 viruses. Zoetis also offers a Fetal Protection Guarantee when BOVI-SHIELD GOLD FP 5, BOVI-SHIELD GOLD FP 5 HB, CATTLEMASTER GOLD FP® and PREGGUARD GOLD FP® 10 vaccines are used in herds according to label directions. It guarantees 100% of calves are born free from BVD persistent infection and the herd is protected against IBR abortion. To learn more about the BOVI-SHIELD GOLD FP 5 and BOVI-SHIELD GOLD FP 5 HB product lines, please contact your veterinarian, Zoetis representative, or simply visit www.CattleReproVaccines.com.
