Certain components of animal feeds, including medicated premixes, possess properties that may be a potential health hazard or a source of personal discomfort to certain individuals who are exposed to them. Human exposure should, therefore, be minimized by observing the general industry standards for occupational health and safety.

Precautions such as the following should be considered: dust masks or respirators and protective clothing should be worn; dust-arresting equipment and adequate ventilation should be utilized; personal hygiene should be observed; wash before eating or leaving a work site; be alert for signs of allergic reactions-seek prompt medical treatment if such reactions are suspected.

Swine Protein Supplements for Further Dilution to Feed Containing 0.0106% (96 g/t) Pyrantel Tartrate

Amount of Banminth 48 per Ton of Protein Supplement*

Indications for Use

Directions For Use

To calculate the amount of Banminth 48 per ton of protein supplement, divide 4000 by the quantity (lb) of protein supplement that will be mixed with grain(s) to produce a ton of complete feed, that is:

4000 ÷ X = lb of Banminth 48 per ton of protein supplement.

where X = quantity (lb) of protein supplement that will be mixed with grain(s) to produce a ton of complete feed.

Example Calculation: Directions for use of the protein supplement require that 500 lb are to be mixed with grain(s) to produce a ton of complete feed.

4000 ÷ 500 = 8 lb of Banminth 48 per ton of protein supplement.

Aid in the prevention of migration and establishment of large roundworm (A. suum) infections; aid in the prevention of establishment of nodular worm (Oesophagostomum) infections in swine.

Prepare a complete feed by mixing proper quantities of protein supplement with grain(s). If pelleted, grind pellets before or during mixing. The resultant complete feed contains 0.0106% (96 g/t) pyrantel tartrate and is to be fed continuously as the sole ration.

Swine Protein Supplements for Further Dilution to Feed Containing 0.0881% (800 g/t) Pyrantel Tartrate

Amount of Banminth 48 per Ton of Protein Supplement*

Indications for Use

Directions For Use

To calculate the amount of Banminth 48 per ton of protein supplement, divide 33,333 by the quantity (lb) of protein supplement that will be mixed with grain(s) to produce a ton of complete feed, that is:

33,333 ÷ X = lb of Banminth 48 per ton of protein supplement.

where X = quantity (lb) of protein supplement that will be mixed with grain(s) to produce a ton of complete feed.

Example Calculation: Directions for use of the protein supplement require that 333 lb are to be mixed with grain(s) to produce a ton of complete feed.

33,333 ÷ 333 = 100 lb of Banminth 48 per ton of protein supplement.
