Liphatech donates portion of sales to cattlemen’s association efforts

—“We’re not in this alone.”

On topics such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) raising regulatory issues about farm dust and questioning the use of sound pasture management tools like prairie dog bait, industry partners such as Liphatech (Rozol) are supporting many state stock grower associations to make sure that all sides of these issues are heard.

Liphatech, manufacturer or Rozol Prairie Dog Bait, has formed a partnership with many state associations in an effort to address environmental and regulatory issues. For every 30-pound pail or 50-pound bag of Rozol Prairie Dog Bait sold in your state between Aug. 2 and Nov. 30, 2010, Liphatech will contribute 5 cents per pound to that state’s association for work on improving environmental regulations and defending landowners’ rights.

Active prairie dog colonies can cut grazing capacity by more than 50 percent. Rozol Prairie Dog Bait, a restricteduse pesticide, can be used by landowners, ranchers and custom applicators to manage black-tailed prairie dog infestations. The product can be applied between Oct. 1 and March 15. Ranchers are encouraged to use the bait early, before cold or snow cover makes application more difficult. — WLJ
