E.I. Medical Imaging Congratulates Dairy Farmers Of America

Posted by Jim Turner on Mon, Apr 20, 2015 @ 09:58 AM

DFAlogoI was just recently reading in a dairy publication wherein we advertise our Ibex® products that the Dairy Farmers of America recently announced its new headquarters in Kansas City, Kansas.  This is a great location for the headquarters as it sits in the middle of the country and is accessible from everywhere nationwide with just a short flight.  This news release was provided on the announcement and we can't wait to see their new facility in 2017.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Feb. 10, 2015) – Dairy Farmers of America (DFA), Kansas City’s largest private company with approximately $18 billion in revenue in 2014, has announced plans to build its new global headquarters in Kansas City, Kansas.

The announcement means the company will relocate its 325 employees from space it has leased in Missouri since its formation in 1998, to a state-of-the-art building being constructed in the expanded Village West area in Wyandotte County, Kansas.

Owned by more than 15,000 dairy farmers across the country, and invested in brands such as Borden Cheese, Kemps, Keller’s Creamery and Hiland Dairy, DFA is the nation’s largest milk marketing cooperative. An exporter of dairy products and powders to nearly 50 countries, DFA is also the sixth-largest global dairy company.

The three-story, 100,000-square-foot building will be constructed with sustainability in mind and designed to LEED standards.

“This building will pay tribute to our cooperative’s farmer-owners and the sustainable practices they employ on their dairies,” said Rick Smith, DFA president and chief executive officer. “More importantly, as DFA strives to be the workplace of choice for employees, the new building will feature a modern, flexible work environment designed for employees of today and tomorrow.”

This is the Kansas City-based cooperative’s second announcement in regard to building facilities in the state, strengthening Kansas’ global agriculture footprint. In late 2014, DFA confirmed plans to build a $235 million state-of-the-art dairy ingredients plant in Western Kansas. The plant, to be built in partnership with Chinese dairy company Inner Mongolia Yili Industrial Group and Kansas dairy producers, will manufacture milk powder for the export market.

"This move recognizes the important role Kansas plays in the dairy and agriculture industry, and we are pleased to welcome DFA to Kansas City, Kansas,” Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback said. “They are a leader in America's dairy industry and their decision to relocate to Kansas reflects our commitment to growing agriculture in Kansas."

Expected completion of the global headquarters project is December 2016. The ingredients facility is expected to be operational in 2017.

If the DFA does indeed construct the facility to LEEDS quality standards, it will be a leader in the dairy world and blaze a trail for other industries to follow.  E.I. Medical Imaging would like to congratulate the Dairy Farmers of America and wish them all the best in the years to come.

E.I. Medical Imaging Approves Vets Getting Help In Rural Areas

Posted by Jim Turner on Tue, Feb 17, 2015 @ 08:24 AM

AVMAIn a press release produced by The American Veterinary Medical Association, it was announced the AVMA is supporting 2 senators and legislation called the Veterinary Medicine Loan Repayment Program.  The following release information was sent by Vet-Advantage News:

AVMA supports bill to put more veterinarians in shortage areas The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) applauded two U.S. senators for sponsoring “important legislation that will help ensure all of America’s rural communities get access to the veterinary care they desperately need,” the association said in a release. Sens. Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) and Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) introduced the Veterinary Medicine Loan Repayment Program (VMLRP) Enhancement Act (S. 440) last week, which is a bill that will exempt VMLRP awards from a steep federal income withholding tax, allowing more veterinarians the opportunity to provide ranchers and farmers with vital food safety and animal and public health services. “The AVMA has lobbied hard for the Veterinary Medicine Loan Repayment Program Enhancement Act over the last six years because we understand the far-reaching impacts that it can have on improving the health and welfare of our nation’s livestock and sustaining U.S. agriculture production,” said AVMA President Dr. Ted Cohn. “As the veterinary profession has evolved, we have seen more veterinarians begin practicing in the cities, leaving many farmers and ranchers in rural areas in need of essential services for their livestock. The VMLRP provides the necessary incentive to support veterinarians who are willing to devote their lives to public service by practicing in the nation’s shortage areas, and we thank our leaders in Congress for continuing to support this important initiative that is a win for both public and animal health.”

E.I. Medical Imaging will be watching this legislation and lending its own support through advocacy for the legislation.  The bill will make it possible for many veterinarians to travel and set up shop in rural areas where they might not otherwise be able to work.  Our products work well with this endeavor as we can be used in the field and away from a brick and mortar animal hospital or on-location veterinary practice.  Good luck to those involved in the program and we will keep a close eye on the bill in Congress.

Tax Credit Renewed For Veterinarians and Farmers

Posted by Jim Turner on Mon, Dec 22, 2014 @ 01:13 PM

taxOn Friday the President signed H.R. 5771: Tax Increase Prevention Act of 2014 (aka Tax Extenders Act) retroactively expanding the Section 179 deduction limits through 12/31/2014 has been enacted. The bill was passed by the house on December 3 and the Senate did their part on December 16.  This is great news for those looking to purchase business equipment.

Only this 2014 tax year is covered by this measure - therefore it is a good business decision for many to finance equipment immediately to make the December 31, 2014 cutoff for the write-off provisions. Please make sure to contact your tax professional to see if you and your company qualify for the write off.

If you want to get your purchase accomplished before the end of the year, contact your sales representative today to get a quote for your new Ibex® Pro, Ibex® Lite or Ibex® LS portable ultrasound system.  We can still send the unit to you via Federal Express and you can begin using the system right away, and benefot for the tax advantages.  Contact us now!

We here at E.I. Medical Imaging have been increasing our marketing to the many people in the beef industry.  One of the groups we think represent a very important role in the beef industry is the Angus breeders.  We love that the Angus breed "means business".  It is said that the Angus breed is the business breed.  We wanted to rally around the Angus Association this year in their first Angus Association convention.  We have launched our own ad campaign with the association in mind by stating that:

"If Angus Means Business Ibex® Makes Business Better"

 angus ad

Ibex® Means Reliability in Veterinary Portable Ultrasound

Posted by Jim Turner on Sat, Aug 30, 2014 @ 10:06 AM

Here at E.I. Medical Imaging, we have been advertising on a show on RFDTV called DocTalk with Dr. Dan Thomson.  We know that Dr. Thomson has been a very well respected veterinarian in the industry and we want our message of the Ibex® and its reliability to be seen by his audience. We have been advertising a little over a month now on his show and I wanted to share with you the 30 second spot.  We are right at the time of year where many beef cows are being pregnancy checked by veterinarians all over the country.  This spot we are running encompasses the idea that veterinarians have a tough job and they need tough tools.  They are reliable and so is the Ibex® durable portable ultrasound.  Enjoy!

We value your opinions and want to know how we can do a better job of meeting the needs of our veterinarians all over the world. Feel free to contact us and let us know!
