Cuts the Pain,
Keeps the Gain
The US produces more than 30 million cattle and 130 million hogs annually. Currently, 80% of commercial beef bulls and 100% of male pigs are subjected to castration, mostly performed without the use of any anesthesia.
This painful and traumatic experience can result in economic losses due to reduction in animal growth and potential medical complications.
Farm animals are castrated to prevent aggressive behaviors, as well as reduce the unpleasant smell that is sometimes present in meat.
EpiFix disrupts the reproductive axis, thereby diminishing the hormones responsible for aggressive behavior and the buildup of odorous compounds.
Painless, Efficient, Ethical
Our pilot studies show significant improvements in factors affecting meat quality:
When compared to intact boars, pigs that received EpiFix saw lower levels of
* The hormone responsible for boar taint
EpiFix addresses all the reasons for castration while providing a stress-free experience for both animals and farmers.
