Bioniche Life Sciences teams up with Bayer Animal Health



Canadian biopharmaceutical company, Bioniche Life Sciences, has joined forces with Bayer Animal Health, a division of Bayer Australia Limited, for the distribution of two cattle reproduction products.


The agreement takes effect on July 1 when Bayer Animal Health will become the exclusive distributor of Bioniche's Cue-Mate(R) and Pregnecol(R) products in Australia.


Pregnecol is a well-established pregnant mare serum gonadotrophin (PMSG) - or equine chorionic gonadotrophin (eCG) - choice of veterinarians and producers in Australia, and Bioniche is the only supplier of domestically sourced and manufactured product.


Cue-Mate offers an efficient and flexible progesterone treatment system, using specially designed treatment pods that attach to a reusable "wishbone" carrier system to deliver the progesterone for maximum effect. Cue-Mate is the estrus synchronisation device of choice for a growing number of Australian farmers.
