For increased rate of weight gain in pasture cattle (slaughter, stocker and feeder cattle, and dairy and beef replacement heifers on pasture).
To be fed free choice at the rate of 3.2-8 oz. of block per head daily. This will provide 80-200 mg Monensin per head per day.
Feed 1 block per 5 head of cattle. This allows all animals equal access to blocks.
Place blocks where animals congregate. Locate blocks throughout pasture, placing them near water and loafing areas. Maintain adequate distance between blocks (10 ft. minimum).
Do not allow animals to run out of blocks. When a block is half-consumed, place a new block near it. Place very small pieces in troughs or feed pans.
Feed as the only FREE CHOICE source of salt, minerals and vitamins.
The effectiveness of this block in cull cows and bulls has not been established.
Caution: Do not allow horses or other equines access to formulation containing Monensin. (Ingestion of Monensin by equines has been fatal.) Monensin Medicated Cattle Feed is safe for use in cattle only. Consumption by unapproved species may result in toxic reactions. Do not exceed the levels of Monensin recommended in the feeding directions, as reduced average daily gains may result. Do not feed to lactating dairy cows.
Consumption of selenium should not exceed 3 mg per head daily.
