New Zoetis Implant, Synovex, Puts More Weight on Your Cattle and Less on Your Shoulders

New Zoetis Implant, Synovex, Puts More Weight on Your Cattle and Less on Your Shoulders


Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays was joined this week with Dr. Doug Hilbig, beef technical service veterinarian with Zoetis, to discuss the animal health company’s next generation implant, Synovex 1 Grass. Like most conventional implants, this new technology works great in feedlots and in stocker cattle. What sets it apart though is its true long-lasting effects.


“These implants as opposed to a conventional implant, they’re designed to pay out for a true 200 days, where conventional implants are typically just a 100-day implant,” Hilbig said. “Some other longer acting implants don’t pay out quite as evenly where as this one is probably the most even payout there is.”


The great thing about this product, says Hilbig, is that every producer manages their operation differently according to whatever environmental situation they are in. Some years, a producer may be turning cattle out for what they think will only be 150 days. Sometimes, it ends up being longer than what a producer might have expected due to some unforeseen circumstances. With Synovex, you can check off one more thing from your list of things not to worry about, because if you keep your cattle in the pasture longer than anticipated, you are still working within that 200-day framework. Tested side-by-side with other conventional implants - even the so-called long-lasting varieties - Synovex was shown to outlast the competition by nearly double the amount of time in the field, and performed twice as well.


“If you look at it, it was like having two of the conventional implants put in 100 days apart,” he said. “What it showed us is, it doesn’t do any different than any other implant - except it last 100 days longer.”


For more information about Synovex to see if it is the right option for your operation, Hilbig recommends speaking with your veterinarian or animal health distributor. Also, check out the Zoetis website or talk to your local Zoetis representative.
