Rumensin® for Energy Efficiency and More
Cows have different needs at different stages of lactation. Early-lactation cows crave additional energy to support higher milk production. Their late-lactation counterparts need less feed to maintain production and pregnancies.
Regardless of the feedstuffs for lactating and dry cows, Rumensin® helps cows get more energy from every pound of feed.
With long-proven prevention and control of coccidiosis in dairy replacement heifers and calves, Rumensin is the most potent feed ingredient available (Long, 1982), killing coccidiosis parasites at three different stages in the life cycle instead of merely slowing their development (McDougald, 1982).
Also, Rumensin is more efficacious at lower doses compared to other ionophores (Long, 1982).
