Bryan Pfahl and Russ Gray of VSI Ltd. will be participating in INVEST 2014 at Ross University in St. Kitts on March 1-3rd.
Several new products will be on display at the event, including equine and bovine theriogenology models.  Hope to see you there!

We will also have a Holstein dystocia model along with several other smaller models on display at the pre-veterinary student symposium at Ames, Iowa on the 21st of March 2014.

These photos show some of the stages in the development of a flexible perineum panel specifically for palpation.  It will be used in conjunction with the bovine reproductive tracts
Molds for the prototype bovine cervix.

This is our compact bovine dystocia model.  It has most of the functionality of our full size models except for the udder and milking capability.  Because of tis compact size it reduces shipping costs and storage requirements.
It will also be able to receive the multi-stage bovine reproductive tract once it is completed.

The dystocia calf model part way through the molding process.  We have made improvements to both sculpture and mold to improve quality of the finished product.

The molds have a lifespan and need to be replaced after a certain number of uses.
