Precision Health Technologies LLC announced that it has been granted master distribution rights for Grazix natural animal health products in North America by LiveLeaf Inc. and its subsidiary, Grazix Animal Health Inc.
Under the agreement, Precision Health will assume all distribution, marketing and product support activities for Grazix products, including the right to manufacture its products for distribution in North America, the announcement said. Precision Health will also continue development of animal health applications for LiveExtract, the LiveLeaf plant-based immune support technology.
Precision Health is led by veteran livestock production consultant and former Grazix vice president of North American agribusiness and chief technical officer Dr. Daniel E. Little, a veterinarian who is currently president and chief executive officer of Precision Health.
“We’ve seen the benefits of the phytobiologics through the Grazix products and anticipate this shift to natural solutions for livestock continue to expand, especially in antibiotic-free production systems,” Little said. “We look forward to supporting our current distributors and expanding the market to improve animal health in protein production.”
The Grazix product portfolio harnesses the biologic benefits of plant-based systems to support optimal animal health in modern protein production operations, the announcement said. The current products include applications for swine, cattle and poultry in an easy-to-use, water-based solution.
In addition to Grazix products, Precision Health will continue to develop, evaluate and manufacture private-label formulations utilizing the benefits of phytobiologics and natural plant extracts, the company said.
According to LiveLeaf founder and CEO Alex Huang, "We are confident that Precision Health will advance the Grazix brand and continue to provide excellent service to current U.S. distributors while expanding into Canada and Mexico. Dr. Little’s experience with our products and deep familiarity with the nuances of livestock production will more efficiently serve the needs of our critical animal agriculture industry.”
