Bimeda® Announces Re-introduction of Ovacyst® and Prostamate®
Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois- March 7, 2022- Bimeda® Animal Health has announced the expansion of its US product portfolio with the re-introduction of OvaCyst® (gonadorelin) and ProstaMate® (dinoprost tromethamine injection).
These recognizable brands (formerly marketed by Bayer HealthCare LLC Animal Health Division following their acquisition of Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. in 2013) provide veterinarians and producers familiar molecules that they have relied on for years at a cost-effective price.
"Reproduction is the single-most important factor for profitable cattle production." said Dr. Chris Thomsen, Senior Technical Services Veterinarian, Bimeda Inc. "Utilization of reproductive hormones for estrus synchronization can reduce or eliminate the need for bulls, decrease time and labor costs associated with heat detection, and shorten the calving interval. Reproductive hormones provide veterinarians and producers effective tools to maximize reproductive efficiency which will positively impact an operation's profitability. Bimeda is excited to return OvaCyst and ProstaMate to the reproductive hormone market."
