Typical analysis (approximate on a dry matter basis)

Energy*12.5 MJ ME/kg DM

*Metabolisable Energy (ME) values are calculated by a registered laboratory from an equation and are not an actual measured value. Therefore they are only a guide for predicting the energy content of a feed.

Feeding recommendation to aid in the control of coccidiosis

To aid in the control of coccidiosis, minimum dose rate of 5mg Bovatec®/kg liveweight (1mg lasalocid sodium/kg liveweight) is required per day. Up to twice this dose rate is indicated where severe coccidial challenge is expected or a wide range of individual liveweights occur within a group.

Approximate feeding rate to deliver 1mg/kg of lasalocid sodium per kg calf liveweight.
