Eureka Gold – Zagro Australia
PR: May 07, 2014
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
