FOR USE IN BROILER CHICKEN AND TURKEY FEEDS

Avatec 20 Medicated Premix Indications

A. As an aid in the prevention of coccidiosis caused by Eimeria necatrix, E. tenella, E. acervulina, E. brunetti, E. mitis and E. maxima in broiler chickens.

B. As an aid in the prevention of coccidiosis caused by E. adenoeides, E. meleagrimitis and E. gallopavonis in growing turkeys.

Directions For Use

Indication A. As an aid in the prevention of coccidiosis caused by Eimeria necatrix, E. tenella, E. acervulina, E. brunetti, E. mitis and E. maxima in broiler chickens.

Mixing Directions

Thoroughly mix 525 g (0.525 kg) of Avatec® 20 medicated premix in one tonne (1,000 kg) of feed to provide 105 mg of lasalocid sodium per kg of complete feed. It is recommended that Avatec® 20 be mixed with a small quantity of the feed ingredients before it is incorporated into the batch of the feed being prepared.

Good manufacturing procedures should be followed at all times to avoid accidental contamination of any feed by lasalocid and to ensure a homogenous distribution in the diet.

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 vice versa.

Thoroughly mix 1.0 kg of Avatec® 20 Medicated Premix to 999 kg of feed block ingredients to provide 200 mg of lasalocid sodium per kg of medicated feed block.

Feeding Directions:

A feed block with Avatec® 20 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 a feed block with Avatec® 20. Ensure cattle have consumed roughage before introducing a feed block for the first time.

● If cattle run out of feed block with Avatec® 20, 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 feed block with Avatec® 20 is 6 months from date of manufacture.

Cautions

1. Do not allow horses or other equines access to lasalocid sodium as ingestion may be fatal (required on premix and supplement labels only).
