Active Constituents:

Progesterone 1.56g contained within 2 silicone pods attached to a flexible 'wishbone' for insertion into the vagina of cows. The pods have a soft 7-gill design. A stiff blue plastic tail protrudes from the base of the wishbone. Available either as 50 ready to use treatments, packed in 5 plastic trays of 10 Cue-Mates, in a blue plastic bag, or as 100 reload treatments packed in 5 plastic trays of 20 pairs of Cue-Mate pods with 100 tails, in an orange plastic bag.

Indication:

The device is used in conjunction with Gonadotrophin Releasing Hormone (GnRH) and/or prostaglandin F2a (or its analogues) to achieve the following therapeutic effects:
• Prime anoestrous cows and induce cycling.
• Inhibit follicle maturation in order to synchronise oestrus in cycling animals.

Dosage:

INSERTION: Insert Cue Mate into the vagina of cows, using either the original orange applicator, or the new easy loading maroon plastic applicator. Wear disposable gloves when loading device into the applicator, as outlined in the instructions. Use a dispenser of Nadalube to lubricate the tip of the applicator, and wipe the vulva clean with a scraper and a soft paper towel. Veterinary sanitiser should also be on hand when inserting devices. Insert the applicator into the vulva in a slight upward direction and then direct horizontally into the vagina and pass through the vestibular constriction.

Release the device by pressing the plunger. The device should rest in the horizontal position with no protrusion from the vulva other than approximately 10–12cm of the blue "tail".

REMOVAL: Hold the Cue-Mate tail firmly and apply even pressure to withdraw the device. Ease pods out to one side to avoid flicking any trapped mucus.

RELOADING: Wishbones may be re-used only after the recommended sterilisation procedure is carried out and new pods are fitted.

Withholding Times:
MILK: Nil. MEAT: Nil. Remove all devices before slaughter.
