Type A medicated article for mixing with non-medicated feed for increased rate of weight gain, improved feed efficiency and suppression of estrus (heat).
MGA 500 is used in liquid feed.
Contains melengestrol acetate (MGA) for mixing with non-medicated feed.
Provides increased rate of weight gain, improved feed efficiency and suppression of estrus (heat) in heifers fed for slaughter.
MGA may be fed in combination with Bovatec® (lasalocid) in a single dry supplement with or without Tylan® (tylosin phosphate). MGA may be fed with Zilmax® (zilpaterol hydrochloride) or Optaflexx® (ractopamine hydrochloride), Rumensin® in a single dry supplement with or without Tylan. MGA also is approved for use in combination with oxytetracycline.
MGA has no pre-slaughter withdrawal.
Should be thoroughly mixed in liquid Type C medicated feed, which must be fed at 0.5-2.0 lb. per head daily. Consistent daily intake provides optimal improvements in rate of gain and feed utilization and a high degree of estrus suppression. Suppression of estrus is maximized at the 0.50 mg feeding level.
