VIDEO: New animation - correct use of Ectofly Pour On for sheep


Bimeda has launched a new animation to help promote best practice use for Ectofly 12.5mg/ml Pour-On Solution for Sheep.

The product contains 12.5mg/ml cypermethrin and is licensed for the treatment and control of head flies, the treatment and prevention of blowfly strike and the treatment of ticks and biting lice.

Making farmers’ lives easier

Bimeda Ireland general manager, Andrew Glynn, commented, “As with all veterinary medicines, for the product to be effective it must be used correctly.”

“While all relevant usage information is included on product and applicator packaging, as well as the SPC, at Bimeda we are committed to developing useful tools which make farmers’ lives easier.”

“This new animation contains information on important areas such as PPE, dosing applicator calibration, which nozzle to use depending on the parasite to be targeted, dosage rates, applicator maintenance and more.”

“It is easy-to-follow, engaging to watch, and we are sure that it will prove to be a very useful tool for those involved in Ireland’s animal health industry.”

The animation focuses on best practice, such as the correct nozzle to use, which varies based upon the parasite to be targeted.

Key information such as the ideal distance of the applicator from the fleece, the direction in which to apply the product, and how to avoid under-dosing are all covered in the short movie.

To get the best performance, it is essential that the product is used correctly.

Increase knowledge

Marketing manager, Mary van Dijk, commented, “At Bimeda we are committed to developing tools and materials which provide farmers with the most up-to-date information on disease control and product usage, in engaging and user-friendly formats.”

“We are very pleased to provide this animation as an additional tool, to support farmers to increase their knowledge in the area of sheep ecto-parasite control.”

Ectofly 12.5mg/ml Pour On Solution for Sheep is a LM medicine and has 8-day meat and 5-day milk withdrawal periods.

The product is available in a 2.5 litre and 5 litre pack size.
