  • Bovatec® Lasalocid Sodium Premix is an ionophore containing Lasalocid sodium 200g/kg in a cereal carrier and is effective for the control of Eimeria spp. for cattle and sheep.

    • This Lasalocid premix is recommended as an aid in the improvement of milk production by dairy cows fed high protein grass pastures and by lot feed dairy cattle.
    • For the control of clinical signs of coccidiosis and reduction of faecal shedding caused by Eimeria bovis and Eimeria zuernii in growing cattle.
    • Bovatec® medicated feed may cause a reduction of intake when first introduced to cows.
    • To minimise this effect cattle may be acclimatised by phasing in medicated feed over several days during pre-calving period
    • Medicated feed is well tolerated after the introductory period
    • Provide medicated feed for the duration of lactation, or when coccidiosis is a risk to growing cattle
    • Do not exceed recommended use rate for Bovatec®
    • Bovatec® 20CC Feed Additive Premix is for use in complete feed or supplements to a ration, given by continuous feeding.
    • Thoroughly mix Bovatec® 20CC Feed Additive Premix into the ration to provide following rate of Lasalocid sodium.
    • General Administration rate for Bovatec® 20CC Feed Additive Premix is use continuously in the feed at the mix rate between 50g and 300g of the premix per tonne (1000kg) of total feed (air dried basis). Daily rate per head for cattle is 0.38g to 3g of Bovatec® 20CC Feed Additive Premix.
    • Administration according to management situation:
      • For improvement in liveweight gains and feed conversion efficacy in total mixed rations mix 165g (0.165kg) of Bovatec® 20 CC in one (1) tonne (1000kg) of feed on a 100% dry matter basis. This provides 33mg Lasalocid/kg (33ppm) in the feed

    • In supplements for hand feeding pasture cattle, hand feed continuously at the rate of 200mg Lasalocid per animal per day. Ensure equal accessibility for cattle feed a minimum of 0.5kg of the medicated supplement per head per day.

    • For control of the clinical signs of coccidiosis:
      • In unweaned calves ensure adequate intake of Lasalocid greater or equal to 1mg/kg of bodyweight daily for three (3) days prior to expected coccidial challenge.
