Feeding Recommendations:

For free choice feeding to growing cattle on pasture or in dry lot (stocker and feeder cattle and dairy and beef replacement heifers). Feed continuously on a free choice basis at the rate of 50 to 200 mg per head per day. Place in covered mineral feeders located near the animals water supply and/or loafing areas. Provide one feeder for each 20 head. Fill feeders with a quantity of SWEETLIX® Free Choice Rumensin® 1620 Mineral that will be consumed in seven days. It is essential to offer enough feeding stations to insure that all animals have free access at all times to SWEETLIX® Free Choice Rumensin® 1620 Mineral. Cattle should consume 1 to 4 oz. per head daily which will provide the approved effective intake of 50 to 200 mg monensin. NOTE: Adequate consumption for cattle is dependent on good pasture conditions.

Provide clean, fresh water to all animals at all times.

CAUTION: During the first 5 days of feeding, cattle should receive no more than 100 mg/head/day. Do not feed additional salt or minerals. Do not mix with grain or other feeds. Stressed and/or water deprived cattle should be adapted to the pasture and to unmedicated mineral supplement before using SWEETLIX® Free Choice Rumensin® 1620 Mineral. Do not allow horses or other equines access to feeds containing monensin. Ingestion of monensin by horses has been fatal. Monensin medicated cattle feeds are 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 goats. Consumption of selenium should not exceed 3 mg per head daily.

WARNING: A withdrawal period has not been established for this product in pre-ruminating calves. Do not use in calves to be processed for veal.
