Company: Elanco US

(lubabegron Type A medicated article)

For Use in Feeds for Beef Steers and Heifers Fed in Confinement for Slaughter

Important: For further manufacturing only. Experior 50 must be thoroughly mixed into feeds before use. Follow label directions.

Active Drug Ingredient: Lubabegron (as lubabegron fumarate) - 50 g per kg (22.7 g per lb)

Inert Ingredients: Corn cob grits, mineral oil, citric acid.

Indications for Use:

For reduction of ammonia gas emissions per pound of live weight and hot carcass weight in beef steers and heifers fed in confinement for slaughter during the last 14 to 91 days on feed.

Effectiveness has not been demonstrated when fed for less than 14 days.

Ammonia gas emissions were measured for individual animals or small groups of animals held in environmentally controlled facilities. Based on existing information, reliable predictions of the reduction of ammonia gas emissions cannot be made on a herd, farm, or larger scale.

Increased rate of weight gain, improved feed efficiency, and increased carcass leanness have not been demonstrated with this product.

Mixing Directions (Dry Type B Medicated Feeds): Thoroughly mix Experior 50 Type A medicated article in a ton of appropriate feed ingredients according to the table below to obtain the proper concentration in the Type B medicated feed (maximum 720 g/ton). If mixing less than 5 pounds of Type A medicated article per ton to make a dry Type B medicated feed, you must prepare an intermediate pre-blend by thoroughly mixing the required amount of Experior 50 Type A medicated article in a convenient quantity of feed ingredients, and then add the pre-blend into the remaining feed ingredients to make a dry Type B medicated feed. The following table gives examples of how some Type B medicated feed concentrations can be prepared:

Formulate medicated feed to a pH of 4 to 9 and dry matter content of 60% to 75%. Liquid Type B Medicated Feeds containing Experior stored in recirculation tank systems: Recirculate immediately prior to use for not less than 10 minutes, moving no less than 1% of the tank contents per minute from the bottom to the top of the tank. Recirculate daily as described even when not used. For liquid feeds stored in mechanical, air, or other agitation-type tank systems: Agitate immediately prior to use for not less than 10 minutes, creating turbulence at the bottom of the tank that is visible at the top. Agitate daily as described even when not used.
