Feed continuously to mature beef cattle and non-lactating dairy cattle grazing medium to good quality pasture. Manage intake as per consumption table and feeding directions below.
It is essential that cattle fed medicated feed blocks have been adapted to non-medicated block consumption for at least two weeks prior to medicated block feeding. Cattle that are not adapted to block supplementation may not consume the product at the proper level or they may over-consume the product due to inadequate prior supplementation. Begin by providing one block per five cows. Adjust block numbers and block feeding management procedures for optimum intake.
Adequate Anaplaz Block with Chlortetracycline consumption is required at all times to assure effective drug activity. It is essential that good block husbandry practices be followed at all times. Block feeding techniques include, but are not limited to, a variety of practices.
Increased consumption may often be obtained by moving feeding stations into shaded or loafing areas, closer to water source, increasing blocks availability to the animals, or combinations of these practices. For optimum consumption, adequate forage or pasture of medium to good quality should be available at all times. Do not provide other sources of free choice salt or minerals.
Good Pastures: Young, well-managed active-growing grasses.
Medium Pastures: Active growing maturing grasses of medium quality. Anaplaz Block Medicated is designed to be fed during periods of the year when vector carriers are abundant and the probability of anaplasmosis transmission is high (last frost to first frost).
Note: Body weight of mature cows that are in late gestation as well as cattle that are grazing lush summer pasture can change rapidly. It is essential that cow body weight is monitored to ensure adequate consumption of chlortetracycline. If consumption falls below recommended levels, manage blocks to increase consumption as stated above or discontinue feeding blocks and hand feed a chlortetracycline supplement at the rate of 0.5 mg per pound of body weight. Store in a cool, dry place. Livestock remedy - not for human consumption.
CAUTION: USE AS DIRECTED. Consumption of selenium should not exceed 0.3 ppm in the total diet.
