It is essential to establish full cattle adaptation to supplemental block feeding prior to treating cattle with Safe-Guard En-Pro-AL Molasses Deworming Block (Medicated). Cattle behavior and per capita consumption must be established by feeding non-medicated En-Pro-AL Blocks prior to medicated block treatment. Adaption to block feed intake for medicated treatment may take 12 to 19 days prior exposure to unmedicated feed blocks depending on consumption rates and environmental conditions. When cattle block consumption of 0.1 pound (1.6 oz) per 100 pounds of body weight (or 1.0 lb for mature cattle) per day is attained for several days on the nonmedicated En-Pro-AL Block, the three (3) day medicated treatment with Safe-Guard En-Pro-AL Molasses Deworming Supplement Blocks (Medicated) may begin.

FEEDING DIRECTIONS:

Adequate forage must be available at all times to cattle receiving supplemental block feeding.

Safe-Guard En-pro-al Molasses Deworming Supplement Block (Medicated) is designed for deworming pastured cattle by feeding these medicated blocks for three (3) days only as the sole source of salt.

It is essential to establish full cattle adaptation to supplemental block feeding prior to treating cattle with Safe-Guard Deworming Block (Medicated). Cattle behavior and per capita consumption must be established by feeding nonmedicated En-pro-al Blocks prior to medicated block treatment. Adaptation to block feed intake for medicated treatment may take twelve (12) to nineteen (19) days prior exposure to unmedicated feed blocks depending on consumption rates and environmental conditions. When cattle block consumption of 0.1 pound (1.6 ounces) per 100 pounds of body weight (or 1.0 pound for mature cattle) per day is attained for several days on the nonmedicated En-pro-al Block, the three (3) day medicated treatment with Safe-Guard En-pro-al Molasses Deworming Supplement Blocks (Medicated) may begin.

For effective treatment, the cattle must consume an average 0.1 pound of Safe-Guard Deworming Supplement Block (Medicated) per 100 pounds of body weight each day for three (3) days of treatment. This is equivalent to an average one (1) pound per head per day to mature cattle for three (3) days of treatment in order to provide a total dose of 2.27 mg fenbendazole per pound of body weight.

To commence deworming treatment, replace the nonmedicated blocks with Safe-Guard En-pro-al Molasses Deworming Supplement Blocks (Medicated). Place these medicated blocks at the same locations where cattle have demonstrated adequate per capita block intake (0.1 pound per 100 pounds of body weight per day).

Questions & Answers

Q
How do remove the Safe-Guard Deworming Block from the cardboard box for the cows to consume?

The block appears to be stuck to the inside of the cardboard box.

A

The Safe-Guard Deworming Block is actually poured into the cardboard box.  All you need to do it cut the top off the box and place out for the cows to consume.  They may nibble on the cardboard, but it won't hurt them.

Q
I have 2 mature cows and one 9 month old heifer. Would 1 Safe-Guard Deworming Block take care of them?
A

That can depend on the weight of the cows really.  Adaption to block feed intake for medicated treatment may take 12 to 19 days prior exposure to unmedicated feed blocks depending on consumption rates and environmental conditions. We apologize but do not carry the unmedicated option though.  When cattle block consumption of 0.1 pound (1.6 oz) per 100 pounds of body weight (or 1.0 lb for mature cattle) per day is attained for several days on the nonmedicated En-Pro-AL Block, the three (3) day medicated treatment with Safe-Guard En-Pro-AL Molasses Deworming Supplement Blocks (Medicated) may begin.

Q
What is the non medicated pretreatment mentioned in the Safe-Guard Deworming Block description?
A

Per the label, you have to get the cattle used to feeding from a block before using the Safe-Guard Deworming Block, so you start with one that does not contain medication.  When cattle block consumption of 0.1 pound (1.6 ounces) per 100 pounds of body weight (or 1.0 pound for mature cattle) per day is attained for several days on the nonmedicated En-pro-al Block, the three (3) day medicated treatment with Safe-Guard En-pro-al Molasses Deworming Supplement Blocks (Medicated) may begin.
