FEEDING AND MANAGEMENT:
When used as directed, VMS® Pasture Aid® Fly Control with Altosid® IGR 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 the horn fly season. Allow free choice to cattle. Cattle should consume an average of 0.4 ounces of this product per 100 lbs of bodyweight per day, which is equivalent to 4 ounces per day for a 1000-lb. animal.
Assure cattle are not starved for nutrients in VMS® Pasture Aid® Fly Control with Altosid® IGR by providing them prior to feeding VMS® Pasture Aid® Fly Control with Altosid® IGR.
Offer cattle 50 pounds for every 15 head of cattle.
Remove all other self-limiting nutritional supplements.
Locate VMS® Pasture Aid® Fly Control with Altosid® IGR where cattle congregate (watering, loafing, shade areas).
Replenish VMS® Pasture Aid® Fly Control with Altosid® IGR on a regular basis as needed.
If intake of VMS® Pasture Aid® Fly Control with Altosid® IGR is below 0.4 oz. per 100 lbs. animal body weight per day, increase the number of feeding locations and/or change locations to areas more frequented by cattle.
If intake of VMS® Pasture Aid® Fly Control with Altosid® IGR is above 0.4 oz. per 100 lbs. animal body weight per day, reduce the number of feeding locations and/or change locations to areas less frequented by cattle.
Introduction of this product after adult horn fly infestation is established will require treatment of cattle with adulticides if elimination of the adult fly population is desired.
