For increased rate of weight gain and improved feed efficiency in growing/finishing pigs, feed 10-50 grams of ALBAC per ton.
Prepare an intermediate premix containing 5 grams per pound by mixing 1 lb of ALBAC 50 in 9 lbs. of soybean meal or ground corn. Add 0.8 to 10 lbs. of intermediate premix per ton of Type C medicated feed.
Levels are minimum and maximum quantities. The bacitracin zinc concentration may be varied between these levels.
ALBAC is packaged in a 50-pound, multiwall paper bag with protective barrier ply.
Store in a protected location and avoid excessive heat. Keep the package closed to avoid contamination.
ALBAC is a Category I drug and does not require a feedmill license for manufacture of medicated feeds. No veterinary feed directive (VFD) is required.
