HeifermaX® (melengestrol acetate)

Manage Estrus, Improve Feedyard Performance


HeifermaX® (melengestrol acetate)

Manage Estrus, Improve Feedyard Performance

HeifermaX is a liquid premix of melengestrol acetate that provides cattle producers with a cost-effective way to supress estrus, increase rate of weight gain and improve feed efficiency in feedlot heifers.

And, for producers managing estrus, HeifermaX provides an alternative to consider when synchronizing reproduction cycles.

HeifermaX — One Reliable Source, Many Proven Solutions

HeifermaX is manufactured exclusively by Elanco to ensure complete quality control and maintain a reliable, consistent supply.

As part of Elanco’s complete portfolio of cattle feed solutions, HeifermaX is approved for use with Rumensin®, Tylan® and Optaflexx® in Type C feed.

Evaluation of HeifermaX vs. MGA® in finishing heifers1

A commercial study with 1,370 cross-bred heifers was performed to compare the effects of HeifermaX vs. MGA on performance and carcass characteristics. Research data indicated that both sources of melengestrol acetate (HeifermaX and MGA) resulted in similar feedlot and carcass performance and both sources were effective in controlling estrus activity.1

For all products: The label contains complete use information, including cautions and warnings. Always read, understand and follow the label and use directions.

HeifermaX 500: Heifers fed in confinement for slaughter
For increased rate of weight gain, improved feed efficiency and suppression of estrus (heat):
Feed 0.5 to 2.0 lb/hd/d in a Type C medicated feed to provide 0.25 to 0.5 mg/hd/d.

HeifermaX 500: Heifers intended for breeding
For suppression of estrus (heat):
Thoroughly mix HeifermaX in the supplement to provide 0.5 mg/hd/d of melengestrol acetate.

Optaflexx CAUTION: Not for animals intended for breeding.

Optaflexx: Complete feed
For increased rate of weight gain and improved feed efficiency in cattle fed in confinement for slaughter: Feed 8.2 to 24.6 g/ton of ractopamine hydrochloride (90% DM basis) continuously in a complete feed to provide 70 to 430 mg/hd/d for the last 28 to 42 days on feed.
For increased rate of weight gain, improved feed efficiency and increased carcass leanness in cattle fed in confinement for slaughter: Feed 9.8 to 24.6 g/ton of ractopamine hydrochloride (90% DM basis) continuously in a complete feed to provide 90 to 430 mg/hd/d for the last 28 to 42 days on feed.

Optaflexx: Top dress
For increased rate of weight gain and improved feed efficiency in cattle fed in confinement for slaughter:
Feed 70 to 400 mg/hd/d of ractopamine hydrochloride (90% DM basis) continuously in a minimum of 1.0 lb/hd/d top dress Type C medicated feed (maximum 800 g/ton ractopamine hydrochloride) during the last 28 to 42 days on feed.
Carcass leanness effects are not an approved indication for use when feeding ractopamine by top dress feeding methods.

Rumensin Cattle fed in confinement for slaughter
Caution:
Do not allow horses or other equines access to feeds containing monensin. Ingestion of monensin has been fatal. Do not feed to veal calves.

For improved feed efficiency: Feed 5 to 40 g/ton (90% DM) of monensin 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 (90% DM basis) continuously to provide 0.14 to 0.42 mg/lb of body weight/d, depending upon severity of challenge, up to a maximum of 480 mg/hd/d.
