Restricted Drug - Use only as directed (California).

MIXING DIRECTIONS: CORID 25% should be thoroughly and evenly mixed in the feed. CORID 25% may be used to manufacture a Type B medicated feed with a concentration of 2.5% amprolium or a Type C medicated feed in the concentration range of 0.0125% to 1.25% amprolium.

- Use 200 pounds of CORID 25% per ton of feed to produce Type B medicated feed containing 2.5% amprolium.

- Use 1 pound of CORID 25% per ton of feed to produce Type C medicated feed containing 0.0125% amprolium*.

- Use 100 pounds of CORID 25% per ton of feed to produce Type C medicated feed containing 1.25% amprolium.

- Use 10 pounds of 2.5% Type B per ton of feed to produce Type C medicated feed containing 0.0125% amprolium.

AMOUNT AND DIRECTIONS FOR USE:

Prevention: 227 mg amprolium/100 lb (5 mg/kg) body weight per day for 21 days during periods of exposure or when experience indicates that coccidiosis is likely to be a hazard.

Treatment: 454 mg amprolium/100 lb (10 mg/kg) body weight per day for 5 days. Use on a herd basis only; when one or more calves show signs of coccidiosis, it is likely that the rest of the group has been exposed and all calves in the group should be treated.

* To aid in even distribution in CORID 25% in the finished feed, prepare a mixture of CORID 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.

The proper amount of amprolium supplement is mixed with the amount of ration usually consumed in one day. The tables below give suggested examples for using Type C medicated feed.
