Important: To maintain proper distribution of Bloat Guard in liquid feed supplements, the viscosity of the medicated liquid supplement must be no less than 275 cps. During storage the medicated liquid may separate out of liquid supplements within five days if not agitated. It is essential that all of the stored mixture be thoroughly remixed (for example, by using a recirculating pump) before being transferred to feeders with free-turning lick wheels. Movement of the lick wheels is sufficient to prevent separation in the feeders.

Feeding And Management Directions For Bloat Guard

These medicated feeds are effective for the control of legume (alfalfa, clover) and wheat pasture bloat in cattle, when consumed as recommended.

1. Use a covered liquid feeder with 1 free-turning lick wheel per 25 head at a height so that all cattle can conveniently lick the wheel.

2. The location of the liquid feeder is extremely important for adequate consumption. Place feeder where cattle congregate (for example, near drinking water), thus providing ready access to the medicated liquid feed. In large pastures, additional feeders should be placed so that cattle are never more than 500 feet from a feeder while grazing.

3. For adequate protection, it is essential that each animal consume the total recommended amount of medication daily.

4. If grazing on pre-bloom legumes, use a liquid feed containing 10 g of Bloat Guard per lb (2.2% w/w). Each animal must consume the medicated liquid feed at a rate of 0.15 lb per 100 lb of body weight per day for adequate protection.

Example: 1.5 lb of 2.2% medicated feed for a 1000-lb animal daily. If consumption exceeds 0.2 lb per 100 lb of body weight per day, cattle should be changed to a liquid feed containing 7.5 g of Bloat Guard per lb (1.65% w/w).

5. If grazing legumes or wheat pasture, use a liquid feed containing 7.5 g of Bloat Guard per lb (1.65% w/w). Each animal must consume the medicated liquid feed at a rate of 0.2 lb per 100 lb body weight per day for adequate protection.

Example: 2 lb of the 1.65% medicated feed for a 1000-lb animal daily.

6. Introduce the feeding of the medicated liquid feed at least 2-5 days before pasturing on legume or wheat to accustom the cattle to the medicated liquid and to lick wheel feeding. If the medicated liquid feed feeding is interrupted, this 2-5 day introductory feeding should be repeated.
