|ACTIVE DRUG INGREDIENT|
The premix contains 833.1 mg/lb (or 52 mg/oz) of Monensin.
FOR INCREASED RATE OF WEIGHT GAIN: Thoroughly mix this Type B Medicated Premix into the appropriate amount of nonmedicated feed to obtain the correct concentration in the Type C Medicated Feed (25 to 400 g/ton) to be fed at the rate of not less than 50 nor more than 200 mg of Monensin per heifer per day in not less than 1 lb. of feedstuffs. During the first 5 days of feeding, a heifer should receive no more than 100 mg of Monensin per day contained in not less than 1 lb. of feedstuffs.
FOR THE PREVENTION AND CONTROL OF COCCIDIOSIS:
Thoroughly mix this Type B Medicated Premix into the appropriate amount of non-medicated feed to obtain the correct concentration in the Type C Medicated Feed (25 to 400 g/ton). The Type C Medicated Feed is to be fed at the rate to provide 0.14 mg to 0.42 mg of Monensin per lb. of bodyweight per head per day, up to 200 mg per day. During the first 5 days of feeding, cattle should receive no more than 100 mg per day in not less than 1 lb. of feedstuffs.
For Calves and Heifers:
Feed large breed calves 4 quarts of high quality colostrum within 2 hours of birth and again 12 hours later. Adjust amounts for small breed calves. If colostrum quality or quantity is low, consider using a colostrum supplement or replacer.
Offer free choice water from day 2.
Offer free choice calf starter from day 3, starting with a small amount, and increasing as they begin to eat. Calves weaned at 8 weeks of age or less should be consuming 3-4 pounds of starter grain per head per day. Never let calves go without available starter.
Wean calves off milk over a 10-16 day period.
At 12 weeks, gradually switch to heifer grower pellet, offering increasing amounts of hay.
Milk Replacer Feeding:
See product tag for feeding guidelines for optimal biologic growth.
Weigh MR powder every feeding for accuracy and consistency.
Mix MR powder in 110-120° F. water. Feed to calves soon thereafter, at 105° F.
Mix MR powder thoroughly with half of the desired final liquid volume. Add water to reach final volume and temperature; mix or whisk solution thoroughly. Feed immediately.
For large mixing batches, agitate while dispensing to individual feeding containers to prevent settling.
Acidified Milk Replacer Feeding:
Check milk replacer solution pH prior to feeding to ensure 4.0-4.5 pH.
Keep at 70-90°F after mixing and feed free choice via nipple feeder.
Mix fresh every 24-28 hours.
Keep equipment, nipples and hoses clean daily.
