Feeding Directions

Feed continuously to dry dairy cows during the last 7 to 21 days prior to calving. Rampart Transition Feed is designed to be fed in a total mixed ration containing 11 to 22 g/ton monensin on a 100% dry matter basis. Mix Rampart Transition Pellet with forage and roughage at a rate of 325 to 650 pounds per ton on a air dry basis to achieve a total mixed ration. At typical levels of DM intake, feeding close up dry cows 8 to 12 pounds of Rampart Transition Feed is recommended. This amount provides: SoyChlor to lower urine pH, rumen protected choline, 800-1,200 IU of vitamin E, and 8-12 grams of niacin. Offer free-choice salt.


CAUTION: Do not allow horses or other equines access to formulation containing Monensin. Ingestion of Monensin by horses has been fatal. Monensin medicated cattle and goat feeds are safe for use in cattle and goats only. Consumption by unapproved species may result in toxic reactions. Do not feed to lactating goats. 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.

LIMITATIONS: Feed continuously to dry and lactating dairy cows in a total mixed ration. You may notice:


Reduced voluntary feed intake in cows fed Monensin. This reduction increases with higher doses of monensin fed. Rule out Monensin as the cause of reduced feed intake before attributing to other causes such as illness, feed management, or the environment.


Reduced milk fat percentage in dairy cows fed monensin. This reduction increases with higher doses of Monensin fed.


Increased incidence and treatment of cystic ovaries and metritis in dairy cows fed monensin.


Reduced conception rates, increased services per animal, and extended days open and corresponding calving intervals in dairy cows fed monensin. Have a comprehensive and ongoing nutritional, reproductive and herd health program in place when feeding Monensin to dairy cows.

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