Directions for Use

Calculate the daily amount of AquaMin™ Zinc required for the mob or herd. Add total required weight of Aquamin® Zinc to the reticulated water supply. Direct addition to water troughs is not recommended except for situations in which there are small numbers of animals. Doses higher than those recommended may be toxic. Introduce gradually over a period of 14 days prior to requiring full rates zinc, to maintain water palatability.


Do not exceed the recommended dose rate or frequency. Knowing animal liveweight is important as for zinc to be effective it needs to be administered at 2g of elemental zinc per 100kg liveweight. Serum zinc tests are encouraged to ensure zinc for facial eczema prevention is not over or under supplied. Do not use at the same time as any other copper or selenium product, prill or fertiliser, without consulting a nutritionist or veterinarian. Do not use where sheep, horses, goat or other livestock have access to treated water. Some sign of moisture in the bag may occur, as the raw materials used tend to absorb moisture from the air contained in the bag at packing.


Reseal packaging after use. Keep in a safe place away from foodstuffs. Store in a dry, cool place out of direct sunlight. Avoid contact with eyes, inhalation and ingestion. Wash hands thoroughly after use. Keep out of reach of children.
