Description

Rumensin™ is a scientifically-proven rumen modifier that improves the health and performance of dairy cows. Rumensin® works by improving the digestive efficiency of the rumen in converting feed into energy. The result is 7-15% more energy from pasture or supplementary feeds, and less gas produced. Rumensin™ has a number of proven benefits including increased milk protein production. In addition, Rumensin™ aids in controlling ketosis, reducing bloat and both preventing and controlling coccidiosis caused by Eimeria zuernii and E. bovis. Registered and approved in over 50 countries worldwide, it is the most successful and potent compound in its class.

Directions for Use

Rumensin™ should be thoroughly mixed with the other feed components and care should be taken in transporting mixed feed to prevent settling.

Cautions

This product must not be used for growth promotion in cattle intended for human consumption.

The recommended levels of Rumensin™ must not be exceeded. Excessively high levels due to mixing errors can cause reduced feed intake, poor growth, diarrhoea, and death.

Responses to Rumensin™ are unlikely if nutrient intake is significantly restricted.

Sheep consuming Rumensin™ should not be fed more than the maximum recommended level, as levels about 20ppm have been shown to produce a decline in Average Daily Growth.

Storage
