Zagro Asia Limited (“Zagro”), a public listed group in Singapore, has announced that its subsidiary, Zagro Singapore Pte Ltd has terminated the distributorship contract of Eureka Gold to MSD Animal Health (Australia) effective 10th June of 2014.
Zagro is primarily engaged in the manufacturing and distribution of crop care and animal health products globally. With 60 years of experience in the agribusiness industry, Zagro has manufacturing facilities, operating offices and presence in more than 70 countries.
Zagro’s established portfolio of products for Animal Health, Crop Care and Public Health could bring viable options to the Australian customers as the decision to manage Eureka Gold directly will give Zagro a significant foothold in the Australian market.
EUREKA GOLD, a Diazinon-based off-shears product for sheep lice control is currently the best choice in the off shears spray-on market in Australia and has no known field resistance. EUREKA GOLD, applied within 24 hours of shearing, is a spray-on backline lice treatment indicated for the control of organophosphate (OP) susceptible, synthetic pyrethroid (SP) and insect growth regulator (IGR) resistant strains of the sheep body louse (Bovicola ovis). Containing diazinon, Eureka Gold provides rapid knockdown of lice by disrupting their nervous system without the need to dip sheep. This avoids the inconvenience of dipping and its associated costs. Treated sheep are easily identified by the scourable yellow dye incorporated into the product.
Sheep lice cost Australian sheep producers about $125 million per year in lost production. Eureka Gold’s application cost is only 0.54cents/sheep and it guarantees impressive efficacy which results to outstanding user reviews.
Zagro’s vision is to always build long-term solutions to an ever-increasing demand for higher quality products at affordable prices for our global customers. We are also constantly looking for quality partners. Should you be able to add value to Eureka Gold or to collaborate with Zagro, please contact us.
