BLOAT GUARD is to be consumed daily. BLOAT GUARD should be fed as a top dressing on individual rations of ground feed, starting two or three days before the animals are exposed to bloat-producing conditions. The higher dosage levels are recommended when bloat-producing conditions are severe.

Repeat the feeding of BLOAT GUARD when animals are exposed to bloat-producing conditions more than 12 hours from the last feeding of BLOAT GUARD. But do not exceed the higher dosage levels in any 24 hour period.

If your animals do not accept BLOAT GUARD readily, stir the recommended amount into their feed. After animals become accustomed to the change in diet, use BLOAT GUARD as a top dressing.

How To Use Bloat Guard As A Feed Premix

NOTE: 1 kg is equivalent to 2.2 lbs.

BLOAT GUARD must be thoroughly and evenly distributed in food-stuffs. Each kilogram of BLOAT GUARD contains 530 grams of poloxalene. The normal recommended prevention dose of poloxalene is 1 gram per 45.36 kg of body weight per day. The following table illustrates various amounts of BLOAT GUARD which may be added to feeds in accordance with its intended daily intake.

For example: 25.0 kg of BLOAT GUARD when added to 1000 kg of complete feed results in a final concentration of 13.2 grams poloxalene per kg of feed (1.32% by weight).

Feeding Directions

The dosage of BLOAT GUARD is proportional to body weight and also depends upon the severity of the bloat-producing conditions. The normal dosage of BLOAT GUARD (1 gram of poloxalene per 45.36 kg of body weight) is recommended for cattle under moderate bloat-producing conditions. For cattle under severe bloat-producing conditions, the normal dosage should be doubled (2 grams of poloxalene per 45.36 kg of body weight).
