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.
