Dairy Cattle: Suitable for cattle producing milk for human consumption (see withholding period information) Dosage Always refer to the label. Separate into different weight classes if there is a large variation in age and weight. Apply as a narrow strip along the back between the withers and tail-head at the rate of 1ml per 20kg body weight. Advice On Use
• WSD ENDOMEC is applied undiluted using an applicator.
• It is easy to use, with half the volume dose of most other pour-on preparations for cattle. • Ideal for dairy herds and for beef cattle entering feedlots for finishing.
• It should not be applied as a single spot or to cattle which are wet.
• Efficacy may be reduced if there is heavy rain soon after application and therefore it is preferable to delay application when rain is forecast.
• If applied to cattle in direct sunlight on days of very high ambient temperature, there may be a temporary local irritation or inflammation of the skin at the site of application.
• Abamectin may be toxic and care should be exercised in ensuring the correct dose rate in cattle which are in poor body condition or drought-affected. It is preferable to ensure cattle in poor condition have been on adequate nutrition for several days before treating.
• The repeated use of any ML drench is likely to result in the emergence of resistance in worm parasites and therefore, it may be advisable to occasionally or regularly alternate with a different class of anthelmintic product such as WSD FENBENDAZOLE 100.
