E.I. Medical Imaging has introduced the Ibex Pro and Ibex Lite portable ultrasound system designed specifically for ultrasound use in large and small farming operations. “The Ibex family of ultrasound systems is the culmination of 25 years of customer input, research and development, says Charles Maloy, company president. New features include quick zoom, cine loop (four-second video playback), CompactFlash image storage, USB and wireless links, voice tag, track ball navigation and Bluetooth RFID reader for animal identification. They are all contained in a biosecure case using DuraScan technology to improve durability of the system. Kevlar-reinforced transducers provide added protection. Accuracy of examinations are enhanced by high-resolution scans on either the Ibex LCD monitor or Insite2 monitor headset.

Compact Tractor Line
Bobcat Company has expanded its line of compact tractors with the introduction of four new models. The company also announced the Bob-Tach quick attachment mounting system is now optional on the front-end loader of all Bobcat compact tractors. The four new models are the CT335, CT440, CT445 and CT450. These four tractors come in three different packages. The Economy Package has a three-point implement hitch with power take off (PTO). The Standard Package includes the three-point hitch, PTO and a loader joystick and control valve. The Standard Package with Cab includes all of the features of the Standard Package with an enclosed cab. Bobcat compact tractors help farmers and ranchers tackle a variety of jobs. All four models feature independent PTO that can be engaged with the flip of a switch while the tractor is in motion. This allows the operator to only engage the PTO on a three-point implement in areas where it is needed. The four Bobcat tractors have a heavier and larger chassis and more horsepower for customers who need more power but don't need a larger machine than a compact tractor.
