Hester Biosciences has announced that it will manufacture research-based herbal products for poultry, cattle, sheep, goats and pigs to meet growing demand. Globally, the trend in medication, both in humans and in the veterinary field, is shifting from allopathy to herbal therapy.
In addition, natural supplements are in demand by many animal health professionals to help boost immunity and improve the general health of animals.
Hester said, “On World Veterinary Day (WVD) – April 24, 2021 – we are officially adding a new line of herbal products for farm animals and poultry to our existing range to support general animal welfare to complement our existing range.”
In terms of animal health, Hester said that our products will mainly target mastitis and production disorders, gastrointestinal disorders, reproductive disorders, ectoparasites and skin injuries. These products help veterinarians manage chronic cases and prevent potential diseases.
Meanwhile, at Poultry, Hester added that our research-based products will improve farm profitability by providing herbal substitutes for choline chloride, vitamin C and many other dietary supplements.
“All products have been developed and backed up by in-depth research. Clinical studies at various veterinary colleges as well as on private farms have shown encouraging results in terms of the effectiveness and overall performance of the products,” added Hester.
Given the topic of WVD 2021, namely the veterinarian’s response to the Covid-19 crisis, Hester is working with veterinarians and farmers by developing products that not only help fight disease in animals, but also help become effective in improving animal health and environment.
Hester said, “With more than 1000 distribution points, we ensure product availability across India.”
At around 2:02 p.m., Hester was trading at Rs2139.15 apiece, up Rs5.45, or 0.3%, over Sensex.
