Feeding Directions

Begin feeding 5% Maximum Pasture Gainer with Altosid & CTC in the spring before horn flies appear on cattle and continue feeding until cold weather restricts horn fly activity. Introduction when significant numbers of adult flies are present may require the use of adulticide sprays or dust. Feeding 4 ounces of 5% Maximum Pasture Gainer with Altosid & CTC provides 70 mg of chlortetracycline per head per day and 34 mg of (S)-methoprene per 100 pounds of bodyweight per month. For best results, place mineral in a protected feeder. Keep fresh, clean water available to animals at all times.
