Feeding Directions

When used as directed Bio-Plus Mineral AFC will provide sufficient S-methoprene insect growth regulator to prevent the emergence of adult horn flies from manure of treated cattle. Existing adult horn flies will not be affected. Start feeding before horn flies appear and continue use until cold weather marks the end of horn fly season. Use the following management techniques to maintain continuous intake of Bio-Plus Mineral AFC at a level of ¼ to ½ lb per 100 lb animal body weight per month. • Assure cattle are not starved for nutrients in Bio-Plus Mineral AFC by providing them prior to feeding Bio-Plus Mineral AFC. • Offer cattle 50 lb of Bio-Plus Mineral AFC for every 15 head of cattle. • Remove all other self-limiting nutritional supplements. • Locate Bio-Plus Mineral AFC where cattle congregate (watering, loafing, shade areas). • Replenish Bio-Plus Mineral AFC on a regular basis as needed. • If intake of Bio-Plus Mineral AFC is below ¼ lb per 100 lb animal body weight per month increase the number of feeding locations and/or change location(s) to areas more frequented by cattle. • If intake of Bio-Plus Mineral AFC is above ½ lb per 100 lb animal body weight reduce the number of feeding locations and/or change location(s) to areas less frequented by cattle. • Introduction of this product after an adult horn fly infestation is established will require treatment of cattle with adulticides if immediate elimination of the adult fly population is desired.
