Directions For Use Of Medicated Supplements

Supplements containing MGA 100 premix should be fed at the recommended rate that will supply 0.4 mg of melengestrol acetate per head per day. Such supplements, that are usually designed to be fed at a rate of 0.25 to 1 kg per head per day, may be fed separately, top-dressed on the grain or silage or mixed with the rest of the ration to provide a complete feed. Alternatively, MGA 100 premix may be used in pelletted feeds, including those which contain a lignin sulfonate pellet binding agent.

Medicated supplements should be used continuously throughout the time that the heifers are being fed for slaughter. If medication is stopped for three days or more, the heifers may come into heat. A 24-hour withdrawal period immediately preceding slaughter must be observed; however, longer withdrawal periods should be avoided.
