Poulin Grain Organic Trace™ provides an improved and optimal trace mineral balance with increased bio-availability of copper, zinc, cobalt, manganese and selenium to your cows. This advantage provides enhanced immunity at calving when cows are very susceptible to health disorders.
Organic selenium has been recently approved by the FDA. Sel-Plex® research shows an improvement in immune status, reproductive health, calf health and immunity and SCC. These benefits are valuable to your farm.
- Research has shown that nearly half of all mastitis infections occur during a cow's dry or newly freshened periods. Supplimental antioxidants can help make your herd stronger and healthier.
- Selenium is often used as a supplement to maintain and help build a strong, healthy immune system. It accomplishes this by preventing cell oxidation (cell breakdown).
- For the dairy cow, an increase in dietary antioxidant intake can result in both a reduction in incidence and severity of mastitis.
Poulin Grain Organic Trace™ can be formulated in any Transition Program.
CAUTION: Do not allow horses or other equines access to formulation containing Monensin. Ingestion of Monensin by horses 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. Feeding undiluted or mixing errors resulting in high concentrations of Monensin has been fatal to cattle and could be fatal to goats. Must be thoroughly mixed in feeds before use. 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. If feed refusals containing Monensin are fed to other groups of cattle, the concentration of Monensin in the refusals and amount of refusals fed should be taken into consideration to prevent Monensin overdosing. A withdrawal time has not been established for pre ruminating calves. Do not use in calves to be processed for veal.
YOU MAY NOTICE:
- Reduced voluntary feed intake in dairy cows fed monensin. This reduction increases with higher doses of monensis fed. Rule out monensin as the cause of reduced feed intake before attributing to other causes such as illness, feed management, or the environment.
- Reduced milk fat percentage in dairy cows fed monensin. The reduction increases with higher doses of monensin fed.
- Increased incidence and treatment of cystic ovaries and metritis in dairy cows fed monensin.
- Reduced conception rates, increased services per animal, and extended days open and corresponding calving intervals in dairy cows fed monensin.
Have a comprehensive and ongoing nutritional, reproductive and herd health program in place when feeding Monensin to dairy cows.
TOTAL MIXED RATIONS ("COMPLETE FEED"): Feed continuously to dry and lactating dairy cows a total mixed ration ("complete feed") containing 11 to 22 g/ton monensin on a 100% dry matter basis.
COMPONENT FEEDING SYSTEMS (INCLUDING TOP DRESS): Feed continuously to dry and lactating dairy cows a Type C Medicated Feed containing 11 to 400 g/ton monensin. The Type C Medicated Feed must be fed in a minimum of 1 pound of feed per cow per day to provide 185 to 660 mg/head/day monensin to lacating cows or 115 to 410 mg/head/day monensin to dry cows. .
