Feeding directions:

Avatec 20 medicated mineral mixes should be fed free-choice continuously from the beginning to the end of the pasture season. Aim for a consumption rate of 125 g medicated mineral mix per head per day which will provide the recommended dose of 200 mg lasalocid sodium/animal/day. Increase the distance of the medicated mineral mix from the water source to decrease consumption of the mineral mix, and visa-versa.

2) Avatec 20 medicated premix may be used in the manufacture of the following medicated feed blocks:

a) Sup-R-Growth Block/Sup-R-Block Génitaure with Bovatec, Agribrands Purina Canada Ltd.

Mixing directions:

Add 1.0 kg of Avatec 20 medicated premix to 999 kg of the above mentioned feed block ingredients to provide 200 mg of lasalocid sodium per kg of medicated feed block.

Feeding directions:

Sup-R-Growth Block with Bovatec should be fed free choice continuously from the beginning to the end of the pasture season. Aim for a consumption rate of 1.0 kg of the medicated feed block per head per day which will provide the recommended dosage of 200 mg lasalocid sodium per animal per day.

- Introduce a 1:1 or 2:1 (Ca:P) free choice mineral with salt two weeks before introducing Sup-R-Growth Block with Bovatec. Ensure cattle have consumed roughage before introducing Sup-R-Growth Block for the first time.

- If cattle run out of Sup-R-Growth Block with Bovatec, observe intake closely for three days after replacing the block, to prevent over consumption.

- If consumption is too low, bring blocks closer to the watering and resting areas. In large pastures, blocks should be available in more than one location.

- If consumption is higher than desired, move blocks further away from the watering and resting areas, and/or reduce the number of blocks available to cattle.

Expiry date:

Expiration of the Sup-R-Growth Block with Bovatec is 6 months from date of manufacture.
