FEEDING DIRECTIONS:

Swine:

Feed continuously as the sole ration to finishing swine intended for slaughter (minimum 70 kg starting weight until slaughter, for no longer than 6 weeks). To obtain the performance benefits of ractopamine HCl, diets must contain a minimum of 16% crude protein, or its equivalent obtained by amino acid (0.85 - 0.95% lysine) fortification. Dietary specifications should be determined in consultation with a recognized nutritional advisor in order to optimize Paylean® 20 effects on performance, carcass parameters and pork quality.

Heavy Turkeys:

Feed continuously as the sole ration to heavy finishing tom turkeys for the last 14 days prior to slaughter.

Feed continuously as the sole ration to heavy finishing hen turkeys for the last 7 to 14 days prior to slaughter.

Turkeys growing at or near their genetic potential may not be able to respond to Paylean® 20 unless sufficient lysine intake is achieved. Dietary specifications for nutrients should be determined in consultation with a recognized nutritional advisor in order to optimize Paylean® 20 effects on turkey performance.

WARNINGS:

No withdrawal period is required in swine or turkeys when treated according to the label.

When mixing and handling Paylean® 20, use protective clothing, impervious gloves, and a dust mask. Operators should wash thoroughly with soap and water after handling. If accidental eye contact occurs, immediately rinse thoroughly with water.

The active ingredient in Paylean® 20 is ractopamine hydrochloride. Ractopamine hydrochloride is a beta-adrenergic agonist. Individuals with cardiovascular disease should exercise special caution to avoid exposure.

Keep out of reach of children.

CAUTIONS:

Do not feed to breeding swine.

Do not feed to pigs intended to be retained for breeding.

The use of this product in pigs finishing over 132 kg body weight has not been studied.

Pigs fed Paylean® 20 may be at an increased risk for exhibiting the fatigued/downer pig syndrome particularly when marketed at high body weights. Pig handling methods to reduce the incidence of fatigued/downer pigs should be thoroughly evaluated prior to initiating the use of Paylean® 20.

Feeding ractopamine to tom turkeys during periods of excessive heat can result in increased mortality.

Not for turkeys intended for breeding.

ADVERSE REACTIONS:

Swine:

Reported1 adverse events associated with Paylean® 20 use in swine include musculoskeletal disorders, downer pigs, increased mortality which is often associated with handling or transportation, behavioural changes, hyperexcitability, and lack of efficacy. Proper handling techniques and reduction of stress associated with transportation may help to reduce the risk of mortality, musculoskeletal disorders and downer pigs.

Turkeys:

Reported1 adverse events associated with Paylean® 20 use in turkeys include alterations in behaviour, hyperexcitability, hyperactivity, musculoskeletal or cutaneous injury, and increased mortality which is often associated with handling or transportation.
