You’ve seen the website, spotted us on LinkedIn, or just heard rumblings about an exciting innovation from cattle experts. And now some of you will have talked to us at the British Cattle Veterinary Association (BCVA) congress in Telford. Yes, we’ve officially launched our new flagship product NoBACZ Bovine! 

Read about our groundbreaking launch here <link>. Still confused about who NoBACZ Healthcare are and why our ‘robust rapid‑setting liquid bandages’ should be working hard on your farms now? 

NoBACZ Bovine lands on udders, horn buds and hooves near you…

At this year’s BCVA Congress, we had the privilege of introducing our product to delegates, along with offering free samples for them to try on their next hoof, horn bud or udder case. Our booth featured flowing water to demonstrate the waterproof and hydrophobic properties of NoBACZ Bovine.

We also shared valuable tips for first time users on how to apply a rapid-set liquid bandage, compared to traditional fabric bandages. The response from the veterinary community at the event has been truly fantastic, many were delighted to have an alternative to traditional bandages.

We look forward to expanding our reach beyond the conference. Please feel free to share this newsletter with contacts who may find our product of interest.

NoBACZ proudly sponsored a lecture by Mike Kerby BVSc CertAVP DBR MRCVS on udder cleft dermatitis, shedding light on this challenging condition. Key takeaways emphasized the need for early detection, given the often late identification of this condition. Frustratingly, clinical trials with existing products often yield frequent recurrences or a lack of therapeutic response.

We are NoBACZ Healthcare

Precision Liquid Bandages were invented by our innovators based at the University of Cambridge. The patent was filed and the first scientific publication followed entitled ‘Robust rapid‑setting antibacterial liquid bandages’.⁽¹⁾

The value of the technology was demonstrated in a proof-of-concept trial on dairy cows with the disease, digital dermatitis. Rapid set liquid bandages could address the significant impact this disease has on economic productivity in dairy farming and quality of life of the animals by offering a sustainable and easy to use alternative approach to management. The natural resin removes itself gradually after use and is waterproof conferring significant advantages for wound management in farm environments.

In November 2020, NoBACZ Healthcare was established and product development began in earnest. After a thorough period of robust fine-tuning and testing for effectiveness, safety and stability the first products were manufactured in Sept 2023 and launched at BCVA Congress in October 2023.

What Is NoBACZ Bovine?

NoBACZ Bovine represents a revolutionary step in skin protection for cows. It is the first biodegradable, sustainable barrier product of its kind. This rapidsetting waterproof, gel bandage offers unparalleled durability even in the challenging farm environment. It provides up to 7 days of protection for hooves, horn buds, and udders*.

*Suggested protection levels of 2 days on hooves, 3 days on udders, and 7 days on horn buds.
