Zermex 10% LA Injection for Cattle – Gain All Season Long  

THE BEST ADVICE 

Protect your cattle throughout the grazing season 

  • The most cost-efficient way to grow animals is from grass during the grazing season and not attempt to catch up over winter when feed costs are higher. 
  • It is vital to ensure that neither worms nor flies impact growth rate during the grazing season. Worms reduce weight gain, carcass quality and milk production. 
  • The key to ensuring that parasites are controlled is to make correct decisions on the type and timing of treatment. There are two strategic options for controlling worms in cattle, one is season long control and the other is multiple pour-on treatments throughout the grazing season. 
  • If choosing to use multiple pour-on treatments, then it is important to ensure compliance with the dosing protocol to prevent a reduction in growth rates.
