Manufacturing Quality

Rumensin® (Monensin) and Tylan® Premix (Tylosin) — quality manufacturing in every bag

Cattle feeders depend on Elanco’s feed additives for consistency in every ration

Elanco’s quality manufacturing starts with a commitment to research and development, followed by stringent quality assurance standards. These systems guide production to reduce and manage risks associated with feed ingredients.

Every batch has assured active ingredient levels that consistently deliver dependable and proven results. Cattle feeders rely on uniform particle size and potency for even distribution in feed and at the bunk.

Consistent results from a proven process

Rumensin and Tylan are produced using Good Manufacturing Practices that meet U.S. Food and Drug Administration and European Union human pharmaceutical requirements. Both are free of any ruminant source material products, which eliminates risks associated with bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) contamination.

The process begins with 24 raw materials that go through unique and complex procedures to produce every bag. And, because a breakdown at any stage could mean uncertain outcomes, each step is carefully controlled, regularly tested and documented for traceability to ensure consistent quality.

Rumensin: Cattle fed in confinement for slaughter
For improved feed efficiency: Feed 5 to 40 g/ton of monensin (90% DM basis) continuously in a complete feed to provide 50 to 480 mg/hd/d.
For the prevention and control of coccidiosis due to Eimeria bovis and Eimeria zuernii: Feed 10 to 40 g/ton of monensin (90% DM basis) continuously to provide 0.14 to 0.42 mg/lb of body weight/d of monensin up to a maximum of 480 mg/hd/d.

Pasture

Dosage/Use Levels
Rumensin: Growing cattle on pasture or in dry lot (stocker, feeder and dairy and beef replacement heifers)
For increased rate of weight gain: Feed 50 to 200 mg/hd/d in at least 1.0 lb of Type C medicated feed. Or, after the 5th day, feed 400 mg/hd/d every other day in at least 2.0 lbs of Type C medicated feed. The Type C medicated feed must contain 15 to 400 g/ton of monensin (90% DM basis). Do not self-feed.
For the prevention and control of coccidiosis due to Eimeria bovis and Eimeria zuernii: Feed at a rate to provide 0.14 to 0.42 mg/lb of body weight/d, depending upon severity of challenge, up to a maximum of 200 mg/hd/d. The Type C medicated feed must contain 15 to 400 g/ton (90% DM basis).
Free-Choice (Self-Fed) Medicated Feeds: Approved supplements must provide not less than 50 nor more than 200 mg/hd/d of monensin.

Rumensin: Mature reproducing beef cows
For improved feed efficiency when receiving supplemental feed: Feed continuously at a rate of 50 to 200 mg/hd/d. Cows on pasture or in dry lot must receive a minimum of 1.0 lb of Type C medicated feed/hd/d. Do not self-feed.
For the prevention and control of coccidiosis due to Eimeria bovis and Eimeria zuernii: Feed at a rate of 0.14 to 0.42 mg/lb of body weight/d, depending upon severity of challenge, up to a maximum of 200 mg/hd/d.

Rumensin: Calves (excluding veal calves)
For the prevention and control of coccidiosis due to Eimeria bovis and Eimeria zuernii: Feed at a rate of 0.14 to 1.0 mg/lb of body weight/d, depending upon severity of challenge, up to a maximum of 200 mg/hd/d. The Type C medicated feed must contain 10 to 200 g/ton of monensin (90% DM basis).

Tylan

For reduction of incidence of liver abscesses associated with Fusobacterium necrophorum and Arcanobacterium pyogenes: Feed continuously at 8 to 10 g/ton of tylosin (90% DM basis) to provide 60 to 90 mg/hd/d.
CAUTION: Federal law restricts medicated feed containing this veterinary feed directive (VFD) drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.
