Self-Limiting

Exact Beef® CIT 125R

Exact Beef logo(Kent Controlled Intake Technology)

A self-limiting feed designed and researched to be fed to all classes of cattle on pasture or drylot.

Feeding Directions
Calves

Feed a pelleted creep feed until intake reaches 2 – 3 lb/head/day.

Once intake is established on the pelleted creep feed and the feeder is down to approximately 25% capacity, add the Exact Beef and corn mixture on top of the conventional creep.

A mix of 20% Exact Beef with 80% cracked or rolled corn.

Feed ad-libitum until weaning.

Stockers

Locate the self-feeder near the water supply.

Feed hay in and around feeder to entice cattle to the self-feeder.

Offer Exact Beef CIT in a 20% Exact Beef, 80% cracked corn mix until intakes are established at approximately 2-3 lb/head.

Once intake is established, transition to the next mixing level to maintain intake at approximately 1% body weight.

Mixing rate for stocker cattle:

Weight Exact Beef CIT Grain
400-500 30% 70%
500-600 40% 60%
600-700 55% 45%
700-800 65% 35%

Watch intake of cattle. If intake increases above 1% of body weight, move up to the next mixing level.

Not recommended for slaughter cattle over 900 lb.

Cows

Locate self-feeders next to the water source until intake is established, then move away from water gradually.

If cows are not accustomed to self-feeders, they may need to be enticed by hay around the feeder.

Mix 80% Exact Beef with 20% cracked or rolled corn.

Feed 80/20 blend until intake reaches approximately 2 lb/head. Will take 3 – 7 days.

Switch to 100% Exact Beef after intake is established.

Intake will be low the first couple of days. Consumption will increase quickly over the next 1 – 3 weeks.

After the third week, intake will level off to around 2 – 3 lb per head.

Factors affecting intake:

  • Size of cow
  • Production stage (e.g. nursing, final trimester of gestation)
  • Quality of forage

The higher the demand for performance of the cow, or the lack of good-quality forage, will increase the consumption of Exact Beef.

   Feeding Directions
For increased rate of weight gain:

Feed the above suggested feeding rate to provide not less than 50 nor more than 200 mg of monensin per head per day. During the first 5 days of feeding, cattle should receive no more than 100 mg monensin per head per day.

For coccidiosis prevention and control:

Feed at the rate of 0.14 to 0.42 mg monensin/lb body weight per day, depending on upon the severity of challenge, up to 200 mg monensin/hd/day.

Intakes of cattle fed Exact Beef CIT Pellet 125R Medicated may vary according to the influence of weather, feeder location, pasture conditions, other feed available, and management practices.

Caution: Do not allow horses or other equines access to feed containing Monensin. Ingestion of Monensin by equines has been fatal. Monensin medicated cattle and goat feeds are safe for use in cattle and goats only. Consumption by unapproved species may result in toxic reactions. Feeding undiluted or mixing errors resulting in high concentrations of monensin has been fatal to cattle and could be fatal to goats. Must be thoroughly mixed in feeds before use. Do not feed undiluted. Do not exceed the levels of Monensin recommended in the feeding direc- tions, as reduced average daily gains may result. If feed refusals containing Monensin are fed to other groups of cat- tle, the concentrations of Monensin in the refusals and the amount of refusals fed should be taken into consideration to prevent Monensin overdosing.

Warning: A withdrawal period has not been established for this product in pre-ruminating calves. Do not use in calves to be processed for veal.
