For free choice feeding to growing cattle on pasture or in dry lot (stocker and feeder cattle and dairy and beef replacement heifers). Feed continuously on a free choice basis at the rate of 50 to 200 mg per head per day. Place in covered mineral feeders located near the animals water supply and/or loafing areas. Provide one feeder for each 20 head. Fill feeders with a quantity of STOCKADE® Free Choice Rumensin® 1620 Mineral that will be consumed in seven days. It is essential to offer enough feeding stations to ensure that all animals have free access at all times to STOCKADE® Free Choice Rumensin® 1620 Mineral. Cattle should consume 1 to 4 oz. per head daily which will provide the approved effective intake of 50 to 200 mg monensin. NOTE: Adequate consumption for cattle is dependent on good pasture conditions.

CAUTION: During the first 5 days of feeding, cattle should receive no more than 100 mg/head/day. Do not feed additional salt or minerals. Do not mix with grain or other feeds. Stressed and/or water deprived cattle should be adapted to the pasture and to unmedicated mineral supplement before using STOCKADE® Free Choice Rumensin® 1620 Mineral.
