Feed at the rate of not less than 50 nor more than 200 mg per head per day of Monensin and 0.10 mg/kg of bodyweight of Diflubenzuron in not less than 1 lb. of feed or, after the fifth day feed at the rate of 400 mg per head per day every other day in not less than 2 lb. of feed. During the first 5 days of feeding, cattle should receive no more than 100 mg per day contained in not less than 1 lb. of feed. Mix 200 LB of this product with 1800 LB of other non-medicated feed ingredients to make a ton of complete medicated feed containing 200 grams per ton of Monensin. Each LB of this blend will provide 100 mg of Monensin. Feed the resulting mix at a rate of 1 to 2 LB per head per day in order to provide 50 to 200 mg per head per day of Monensin in not less than 1 LB of the blended medicated feed. Or, after the 5th day, feed at the rate of 400 mg (4 LB of the blended medicated feed) per head per day every other day in at least 2 LB of feed. During the first 5 days of feeding, cattle should receive no more than 100 mg (1 LB of feed) per day contained in not less than 1 LB of feed. Do not self-feed. Provide plenty of fresh, clean water at all times. NOTE: Do not permit intake of supplemental selenium to exceed 0.3 ppm in the total ration. CAUTION: Keep out of reach of children. Discard empty container according to local regulations. Never reuse empty container. Do not allow horses or other equines access to feed containing Monensin. Ingestion of Monensin by equines has been fatal. Monensin medicated cattle and goat feeds are safe for use in cattle and goats only. Consumption by unapproved species may result in toxic reactions. Do not feed undiluted. Feeding undiluted or mixing errors resulting in high concentrations of Monensin has been fatal to cattle and could be fatal to goats. Do not exceed the levels of Monensin recommended in the feeding directions, as reduced average daily gains may result. If feed refusals containing Monensin are fed to other groups of cattle, the concentration of Monensin in the refusals and the amount of refusals fed should be taken into consideration to prevent Monensin overdosing. WARNING: A withdrawal time has not been established for pre-ruminating calves. Do not use in calves to be processed for veal.
