CREEP FEED SUPPLEMENT: Offer this tub to calves in a creep area, 1 to 2 months prior to weaning.

RECEIVING AND STARTING SUPPLEMENT: Offer this tub to newly received calves or starting cattle, either in confinement or on pasture. Tubs should be offered through the first 3 to 4 weeks to newly received calves.

FEED YARD HOSPITAL & SICK PENS: These tubs are also an excellent supplement to include in feed yard hospital or sick pens to help stimulate feed intake and provide important nutrition to help cattle overcome disease. Calves will receive 7 grams of Availa®4 and 1/2 ounce of Diamond V® Original XPC™ per ½ pound of product consumed.

BREEDING CATTLE: Offer this tub to cows, replacement heifers, developing bulls and breeding bulls from 60 days prior to calving, through the end of the breeding season.

IMPORTANT:

  1. Feed three 60LB tubs per 20 head and at least 2 tubs per pen or pasture to ensure adequate intake by younger, more timid animals.
  2. Place tubs within 100 feet of where animals congregate (loafing, grazing, feeding and watering areas).
  3. Feed tubs continuously along with adequate amounts of good quality forage and fresh, clean water.
  4. Cattle will consume approximately 0.33 to 0.5 pounds of this supplement per head daily.
  5. Cows will receive 7 grams of Availa4 and 1/2 ounce of Diamond V Original XPC per 1/2 pound of tub consumed.

INTRODUCTORY PERIOD: During the first week of use, place the tubs within 100 feet of the loafing and/or watering areas. As animals become accustomed to the presence of the tubs, some
repositioning may be necessary. Move the tubs closer to increase consumption, further away to decrease consumption.

DO NOT PROVIDE STARVED ANIMALS FREE ACCESS TO THIS SUPPLEMENT.

Consumption rate depends on location of the tubs with respect to loafing, grazing, feeding and/or watering areas. Also consider animal condition, forage quality and quantity and seasonal weather conditions. If over-consumption occurs for more than two weeks despite tub repositioning, remove tubs and evaluate the overall feeding program.

CAUTION: Store in a dry, well-ventilated area protected from rodents and insects. Do not feed moldy or insect-infested feed to animals as it may cause illness, performance loss or death. This product was made in a feed manufacturing facility that does not handle or store products containing animal proteins prohibited in ruminant feed.
