For animal treatment only.

Indications: To aid in the prevention of facial eczema in cattle and sheep.

Contains: NRM Zinc Mineral Mix contains 12.5g Zinc Oxide TS-99 per 100g (125g per 1kg TS-99).

Feed inclusion
Include with supplementary feed, mixing well, to provide a daily dose of 2.5g Zinc Oxide TS-99/100g liveweight. Read the Feed Certificate accompanying each load to confirm inclusion level and feeding rate.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Recommended dose rates should be followed. For best protection, introduce gradually building to recommended rates at least two weeks before the facial eczema condition normally occurs. Continue until cooler winter conditions. Where spore counts are already high, drenching with zinc at crisis dose rates is recommended. Please consult your local veterinary practitioner or animal health advisor for further advice. In high risk situations delivering zinc via multiple routes may be beneficial.

Warning: Zinc may be toxic to stock at higher than recommended levels. In cattle, the maximum recommended continuous zinc supplementation is 100 days. Blood tests may help confirm if protection has been effective or needs to be reduced.

By law, the user must obtain expert advice if using the product other than as directed.
