Zoetis Launches Bovine Match Sweepstakes

12 April 2018


US - Zoetis launched the Bovine Match Sweepstakes, a new online sweepstakes that urges cattle producers to find their perfect match in parasite control. Producers can visit until 11 May 2018, to enter for a chance to win one of 10 weekly $100 prizes, as well as a grand prize of a $2,500 gift card.

“Finding the perfect match in parasite control is important for cattlemen everywhere. Wanting fewer parasites is something both cattle and cattlemen can agree on,” said Leona Ferguson, cattle parasiticides and beef franchise marketing manager at Zoetis. “With this in mind, we created this sweepstakes with an entertaining spin on finding the perfect match in parasite control.”

Dectomax® and Valbazen® from Zoetis offer time-tested parasite control options for cattlemen, with the following advantages:

  • Dectomax Injectable has the broadest coverage of any injectable on the market.
  • Dectomax Pour-On has the longest duration of any nonprescription parasite control product, with up to 77 days of activity against the biting cattle louse.
  • Valbazen is the only oral drench dewormer that controls Ostertagia ostertagi, liver flukes and Cooperia oncophora, as well as C. punctata.

In the Bovine Match Sweepstakes, participants are invited to upload their photo to find their perfect bovine match from among the cattle images available for selection at the online sweepstakes. Every completed match earns an entry into the 10 weekly drawings for a $100 gift card and the grand prize drawing for a $2,500 gift card. Winners will be randomly selected and personally notified.
