Feeding Directions

This feed contains 28 mg per pound of monensin. Feed continuously to provide 0.14 to 0.42 mg per pound of body weight per day, depending upon the severity of challenge, up to a maximum of 480 mg of monensin per head per day.


CAUTION: Do not allow horses or other equines access to formulation containing Monensin. Ingestion of Monensin by equines has been fatal. Monensin medicated cattle feed is safe for use in cattle and goats only. Feeding undiluted or mixing errors resulting in high concentrations of monensin has been fatal to cattle and could be fatal to goats. Must be thoroughly mixed in feeds before use. Do not feed undiluted. Do not exceed the levels of monensin recommended in the feeding directions as reduced average daily gains may result. If feed refusals containing monensin are fed to other groups of cattle, the concentration of monensin in the refusals and amount of refusals fed should be taken into consideration to prevent monensin overdosing. A withdrawal time has not been established for pre-ruminating calves. Do not use in calves to be processed for veal.

This product contains added copper. Do not feed to sheep.
