Safe-Guard Dewormer Cattle Pellets is a strategic deworming program for stocker cattle and dairy and calf operations. The active ingredient is fenbendazole, which removes and controls lungworms, stomach worms, barberpole worms, brown stomach worms, small stomach worms, intestinal worms, hookworms, thread-necked intestinal worms, bankrupt worms, and nodular worms. Pellets are approximately 1 inch long.
*NOTE: This 50 lb is .05% Fenbendazole, with an application rate of 1 lb per 100 lb body weight for cattle due to the less active ingredient. Other size Safe-Guard pellets have a higher percentage of active Fenbendazole .5% and the application rate is 1 lb per 1000 lb body weight for cattle.
