SCHAUMBURG, Ill., March 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Central Life Sciences today
launched a photo and caption contest on the ClariFly^® Larvicide Facebook page
asking future dairy professionals to share their pictures and thoughts on the
industry. The ClariFly Future of Dairy Contest will run throughout the month
of March and into April to celebrate National Agriculture Month and will award
several prizes to winning entries, including a top cash prize of $3,000.

Contestant must be at least 18 years of age and enrolled in an accredited
agricultural program or employed in an agricultural profession. To enter,
contestants are asked to visit the contest app on the ClariFly Larvicide
Facebook page and submit an original photo they have taken relating to the
dairy industry along with a 100-150-word caption explaining why their photo
exemplifies that the future of the dairy industry is strong or why they have
chosen to pursue a dairy related career. All entries submitted by the April
23, 2013 deadline will be reviewed by a panel of Central Life Sciences experts
who will award one $3,000 top prize, two $1,000 runner-up prizes and multiple
$500 honorable mention prizes.

"We really want to engage the young men and women who represent the future of
the dairy industry and learn what has inspired them to pursue these careers,"
said Mark Taylor, director of marketing for ClariFly Larvicide. "This contest
provides us an opportunity to fuel the fire within these future professionals,
and we hope the available prizes can assist with education or other expenses
as they prepare to enter the field."

ClariFly^® Larvicide is a feed supplement that prevents adult house flies,
stable flies, face flies, and horn flies from developing in and emerging from
the manure of treated cattle. Unlike conventional insecticides that attack the
nervous system of insects, ClariFly^® works by interrupting the fly's life
cycle, rather than through direct toxicity. The official ClariFly^® Facebook
page provides product information, fly-control tips and the latest news on the
dairy industry from around the country.

Complete rules and restrictions for the ClariFly Future of Dairy Contest are
available at the ClariFly^® Larvicide website.
