Prevention of pasture bloat in cattle
Nonionic surfactant, carminative
20 liter bucket
Composition: each 100 ml contains 25 g of Polyoxyethylene lauryl ether.
Indications: Carminative, prevention and treatment of meteorism (pasture bloat) caused by leguminous plants in cattle. Antifoaming agent and surfactant. The protection lasts 24 hours and it can be administered to dairy cows in production and cattle for meat. It leaves no residue in treated animals.
Administration and dosage: by oral route.
Indicative dose: 3.2 ml per 100 kg body weight, equivalent to 0.8 g of the active principle. The product can be incorporated into the drinking water directly into the tank, through dispensers attached to the waterline. It can also be applied directly by spraying pastures and the area that will be consumed by the batch of animals in 24 hours must be calculated. On average, it could be calculated that 1 hectare can accommodate 100 cattle of 300 kg.
Example of calculation for a 1-hectare plot where 100 animals are fed during a day: number of heads x dose/area = 100 x 9.6 ml/1 ha = 960 ml/ha/day. The product can be diluted into 100 to 200 liters of water and spray with a pressure of 30 to 40 pounds/inch (small drops), trying to cover all the pasture. It is convenient to start spraying 2 to 3 days before introducing the animals.
Administer according to professional criteria.
Precautions: avoid eye contact as it is a moderate irritant. Wash immediately with plenty of soap and water if accidental eye contact occurs. In case of accidental ingestion, supply water or milk. Do not induce vomiting. Carry out symptomatic treatment.
