Mixing Directions

AMPROL® (amprolium) 25% should be thoroughly and evenly mixed in the feed. AMPROL 25% may be used to manufacture a Type C medicated feed in the concentration range of 0.004% to 0.025%. The table below shows the amount of AMPROL 25% to be used in each ton (2000 lb) of feed to obtain desired levels of amprolium in the Type C medicated feed.

To aid in even distribution of AMPROL 25% in the finished feed, prepare a mixture of AMPROL 25% in a portion of complete feed ingredient before mixing into the finished ration. Blend the mixture with the remainder of the finished feed and mix thoroughly.

Amount And Directions For Use

Chickens

Broilers: Prevention: Use 0.0125% amprolium Type C medicated feed continuously for most field conditions as they exist under modern management practices. Where severe coccidiosis conditions exists and where immunity is not required, use 0.025% amprolium Type C medicated feed. For field conditions where only E. tenella is the major problem, use 0.008%-0.0125% amprolium Type C medicated feed.

Increasing level of amprolium may not prevent coccidiosis caused by strains of Eimeria commonly found to be resistant to Amprolium.

Replacements: Immunity Development Prevention Program: Where immunity development is not desirable, use 0.0125%-0.025% amprolium Type C medicated feed continuously from day old until onset of production.

Immunity Development Program: Use 0.004%-0.0125% amprolium Type C medicated feed continuously until onset of production.

Selection of the level to be used should be based upon comparative hazard of infection with cecal and intestinal species. The higher levels will interfere with the development of immunity to E. tenella (cecal).

The following are suggested feeding schedules for various conditions of coccidial exposure. The planning and evaluation of any program should be in the hands of a veterinarian or poultry pathologist who is familiar with the specific operation and with the general nature of disease problems in the area.

1. Severe exposure

2. Moderate exposure

3. Slight exposure

Prevention: Use 0.0125% amprolium Type C medicated feed continuously.

TURKEYS: Prevention: Use 0.0125%-0.025% amprolium Type C medicated feed continuously.

PHEASANTS: For the prevention of coccidiosis in growing pheasants caused by Eimeria colchici, E. duodenalis, and E. phasiani.

Type C medicated feed with 0.0175% amprolium should be fed continuously as the sole ration.

Amprol 25% Type A Medicated Article Caution

Use as the sole source of amprolium.

Do not change the litter while giving this feed unless absolutely necessary.

If losses exceed 0.5% in a 2-day period, obtain an accurate diagnosis, and follow the instructions of your veterinarian or poultry pathologist.

Losses may result from intercurrent disease or other conditions affecting drug intake which can contribute to the virulence of coccidiosis under field conditions.

In replacement flocks the grower must expect that excessive exposure to one or more species may overwhelm the drug in some flocks and prompt treatment will be required.

Fertility, hatchability and other reproductive data are not available on amprolium in breeding pheasants.

Do not use in feeds containing bentonite.
