To obtain optimal benefit from the persistent activity of Ivomec Classic Pour-On for Cattle for grazing animals, it is recommended that calves which are set-stocked in their first grazing season should be treated 3, 8 and 13 weeks after the day of turn-out. Studies have demonstrated that first-season grazing calves turned out to pasture in late April or May and treated with Ivomec Classic Pour-On for Cattle 3, 8 and 13 weeks after turn-out can be protected from parasitic gastro-enteritis and lungworm disease throughout the grazing season, provided they are set-stocked, all the calves are included in the programme and that no untreated cattle are added to the pasture. Treated calves should always be monitored according to good husbandry practices. Rainfall before or after treatment will not affect the efficacy of Ivomec Classic Pour-On.
Dosage and administration:
1 ml per 10 kg bodyweight (based on a recommended dosage level of 500 micrograms/kg bodyweight). To ensure administration of a correct dose, bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible; accuracy of the dosing device should be checked.
For pour-on use only.
The formulation should be applied along the mid-line of the back in a narrow strip between the withers and tailhead.
Squeeze-Measure-Pour System (1 litre pack):
Attach the metering cup firmly to the bottle.
Set the dose by turning the top section of the cup to align the correct bodyweight with the pointer on the knurled cap of the cup. When bodyweight is between markings, use the higher setting. Hold the bottle upright and squeeze it to deliver a slight excess of the required dose as indicated by the calibration lines. When the pressure is released, the dose automatically adjusts to the correct level. Tilt the bottle and dispense the solution.
