MIXING DIRECTIONS: Add 10.7 kg of ‘Bovatec’ Medicated Premix to 989.3 kg of the above mentioned Mineral mixes to provide 1,600 mg lasalocid sodium per kg of medicated mineral mix.

FEEDING DIRECTIONS: ‘Bovatec’ 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 visa-versa.

2) ‘Bovatec’ Medicated Premix may be used in the manufacture of the following medicated feed blocks:

a) Sup-R-Growth Block/Sup-R-Bloc Génitaure with ‘Bovatec’, Agribrands Purina Canada Ltd.

- Introduce a 1:1 or 2:1 (Ca:P) free choice mineral with salt two weeks before introducing Sup-R-Growth Block with ‘Bovatec’. Ensure cattle have consumed roughage before introducing Sup-R-Growth Block for the first time.

- If cattle run out of Sup-R-Growth Block with ‘Bovatec’, 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 Sup-R-Growth Block with ‘Bovatec’ is 6 months from date of manufacture.
