Under the amendment, AgriLabs will continue to market the underlying bovine vaccines in the United States, Africa and Mexico through December 15, 2013. Subject to minimum purchase requirements, AgriLabs' rights in these regions will be exclusive through December 15, 2009. Heska Des Moines is free to sell these bovine vaccines to any party of its choosing in other regions of the world. AgriLabs will also maintain non-exclusive rights to these bovine vaccines in Canada through December 15, 2008.

"The vaccines underlying this agreement are well known in the United States and Africa cattle markets where they are sold under AgriLabs' label and tradenames Titanium(R) and MasterGuard(R). We were pleased when AgriLabs began to sell these vaccines in new markets, first in Africa and most recently in Mexico," said Robert Grieve, Heska's Chairman and CEO. "We are pleased to continue our positive working relationship with AgriLabs and continue to benefit from their livestock market expertise."

"We are proud of the leadership position we have established for these vaccines. Our research and development agreement with Heska Des Moines is the cornerstone of our commitment to maintain the preeminence of these vaccines in the marketplace," commented Steve Schram, AgriLabs' President and CEO.
