A Nutritional Supplement Containing S-Methoprene Insect Growth Regulator for
Continuous Feeding to All Classes of Beef and Dairy Cattle through the Horn
MINLIC® IGR supplement is specially formulated to enrich the diet
with essential minerals and sufficient (S)-Methoprene insect growth regulator
to prevent the emergence of adult horn flies from manure of treated cattle
without the added cost of supplemental protein. This unique supplement is second
to none when compared to other low moisture blocks. This block is the product
of a state-of-the art patented process that provides a unique 24-hour feeding
system. MINLIC® IGR is an exceptionally dense block that
will give you the most for your money. Here’s how:
- MINLIC® IGR supplement is fortified with Altosid® which
offers the most effective and convenient way to control horn flies in beef
and dairy cattle.
- Economical: A low feeding rate means lower feeding
costs (on a per head per day basis).
- High Mineral Fortification: This supplement is mineral
and vitamin fortified which means that additional minerals do not need to
be added to the diet, resulting in significant cost savings.
- Weather Resistant: The patented, “continuous
flow” system creates a low-moisture, exceptionally dense block that
maintains its integrity even in hot, humid weather or precipitation.
- Minimal Labor: The Feed In A Drum supplements are easy
to feed. Simply place the block in areas of easy access to cattle.
- Returnable Steel Tubs are self contained supplement
feeders that are environmentally friendly and eliminate the expense of additional
EFFECTIVE FLY CONTROL
MINLIC® IGR supplement already helps improve forage utilization
and reproductive performance by providing cattle the essential nutrients
they need. Now MINLIC® IGR will help keep
horn fly populations under control too. As an insect growth regulator, Altosid
passes through cattle and into the manure. This is where the breaking of
the fly cycle begins. Female flies can lay eggs in fresh manure. Within
a week or so the eggs develop into larvae, then pupae and then adult flies.
The active ingredient in Altosid, Methoprene, ultimately prevents fly eggs
from completing this cycle, keeping adult flies from emerging.
Kansas State University research completed in 2005 shows that feeding The
Feed In A Drum IGR supplements fortified with Altosid to cattle significantly
decreases the survival rate of horn flies to the adult stage.
MINLIC® IGR offers the benefit of added magnesium in a highly
palatable supplement that cattle will readily consume. This supplement contains
a minimum of 2% magnesium. Magnesium is needed for activation of enzymes,
nerve transmission, skeletal tissue, bone formation and milk production.
