ARMENTA, COWSULTANTS ANNOUNCE DISTRIBUTION AGREEMENT
Source: joint news release

Colorado Springs, CO - Armenta has teamed up with Cowsultants, a dairy consulting firm based in Colorado, to market its Acoustic Pulse Technology (APT) to dairy farmers in North America. APT has been used for the last 20 years in human healthcare treating inflammatory diseases, and Armenta is the first company to develop APT-X, a therapy specifically for treating bovine mastitis. APT can be used to treat the udder non-invasively and without the use of antibiotics.

Gil Hakim, CEO of Armenta, said, "We are pleased to be partnering with Cowsultants in North American. As a start-up, not unlike Armenta, this team brings to the table a unique, producer-minded energy, decades of experience in this important dairy market, and a shared passion for sustainable farming. With APT, dairy farmers in the U.S. and Canada can now improve the welfare of their animals and produce the highest quality milk possible all while reducing their antibiotic use."

Clinical and subclinical mastitis affects 30 percent of dairy cows each year and is regarded as the most significant economic burden on the dairy farm reducing milk yield and quality and increasing culling rate.

In a study published in a peer-reviewed journal, Armenta's
APT-X was applied to the infected quarter, non-invasively and without using antibiotics or other means, to over a thousand cows with clinical and subclinical mastitis. The results were clear: over 70 percent mastitis recovery rates, an increase in milk yield of over 10 percent, and a 70 percent reduction in culling rates.

Jim Mattox, CEO of Cowsultants, said, "Born and bred on a dairy farm and involved in the industry my entire career, I understand the stakes are high for producers looking to protect the quality of their milk, the welfare of their animals and the health of their pocketbooks. When my team and I learned about an alternative solution to antibiotics with positive scientific data, we were all in. APT-X will influence how farmers-and consumers-think about animal health."
