 BALLISTIVET, INC. ANNOUNCES USDA APPROVAL
 OF THREE NEW BIOLOGICAL PRODUCTS
 MINNEAPOLIS, April 13 /PRNewsiwre/ -- BallistiVet, Inc., (NASDAQ: BVET) today announced that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has approved three new biological products for use as vaccine- containing "bio-bullets" with the company's Ballistic Implant System.
 The products approved are: BRSV - for the prevention of respiratory disease caused by bovine respiratory syncytial virus; BRSV/IBR/PI3 - for the prevention of the above mentioned respiratory disease plus others caused by IBR, PI3, eye infections and abortion caused by IBR; BRSV/IBR/PI3/BVD - in addition to the above, is also for the prevention of mucosal disease and certain reproductive diseases.
 According to the USDA, approximately 38,000,000 doses of these products are manufactured annually in the U.S. These approvals therefore, represent a significant step in expanding the company's product line to more successfully compete with the needle and syringe method of inoculating large animals.
 BallistiVet's patented ballistic implant system, allows the user to inoculate animals from ranges up to 50 feet using an air-powered rifle, eliminating the need for a chute and head restraint.
 "We are very excited about the USDA approval of these additional biologicals," says Dr. Les Krogh, chairman of the board and CEO. "The approval of these products opens the door for us to reach the cow/calf segment, which represents 80 percent of the cattle market, thus greatly expanding our market potential.
 "The approval also comes at an opportune time in the company's marketing strategy, which includes the recent hire of Gary Bordendale in the newly created position of marketing director."
 BallistiVet is a Minnesota based company which currently manufactures and sells products for the cattle health care market, which approximates $1 billion in the U.S.
