CYDECTIN LA AND INFO ON LOCAL MULTIMIN TRIALS – Monto
18 July @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am
WEDNESDAY, 18 JULY AT MONAL – MONTO
Location – MONAL (Peter and Jenny Aisthorpe) 2126 Monal Road (turn left onto Monal road at Mungungo) – Monal is about 40mins from Monto.
Cydectin LA: Cydectin LA is one of only two long acting products we have for ticks, and the longest acting product we have for worms in cattle. These two things make it particularly worthwhile for growing out young stock, whether they be trade steers or replacement heifers.
Because it is a concentrated product a good management system is required if it is to be used safely and effectively.
- Animals should be weighed and dosed according to weight (overdosing is dangerous and under-dosing encourages resistance)
- The injection need to be applied in the recommended place, behind the ear of the animal. (Thus adequate restraint and a good technique are important)
- Animals need to be in good body condition. (Low body fat decreases the length of action and increases the risk of effective overdosing)
The purpose of this training day is to demonstrate the correct application site and method as well as discuss when and where it may be of benefit in your system.
Local Multi-Min Trials: Multi-min is a mineral injection containing Zinc, Manganese, Copper and Selenium. They have had great success with it in deficient coastal areas, increasing weight gains and conception rates as well as decreasing the incidence of diseases such as post calving complications in cows and heifers.
There has been mixed results in the Monto area, with some producers reporting no benefits and some measuring huge returns on investment. My thoughts are that we are more likely to see benefits in coastal areas like the Boyne valley, high rainfall areas like Monal and lighter country where nutrients are leached from the soil more readily.
During the day we’ll be sharing some of the results from local trials and discussing how Multi-min works and when to use it.
There may also be the potential to work with Virbac to do further trials in this area, or we can help design your own trials. Any input from producers who have used it are also welcome.
