As a beef producer, you’re concerned about the cost of production, and rightly so. Losses in beef cattle weight gain per day due to manageable causes such as parasites are more important than ever to address in times of high feed costs and lower cattle prices.
*A withdrawal period has not been established with calves. Do not use in calves to be processed for veal.
Of all the health practices used to increase beef cattle production, treating for parasites gives the largest economic return – up to $201 per head – more than growth-promoting implants, subtherapeutic antibiotics, ionophores and fly control.22 - Lawrence JD, Ibarburu MA. Economic analysis of pharmaceutical technologies in modern beef production. Proceedings of the NCCC-134 Conference on Applied Commodity Price Analysis, Forecasting, and Market Risk Management. 2007;1-18.
Simply put, untreated calves and heifers won’t perform as well as those that have had their worm load reduced. Think of it this way. If, for example, you have a calf with the potential to gain .36 lbs. per day and it’s gaining less than that due to parasites, then the extra weight gain more than pays for the cost of EPRINEX.44 - Beckett J. Efficacy of pour-on dewormers differing in active ingredient and carrier on weight gain and fecal egg count in stocker beef cattle. College of Agriculture, Cal Poly State University.
In a study, cattle treated with EPRINEX clearly outgained the competition.
|Pour-ons||Species and stages controlled||Weight gained|
|EPRINEX (eprinomectin)||39||36.1 lbs.|
|CYDECTIN® (moxidectin)||33||32.8 lbs.|
|DECTOMAX® (doramectin)||32||31.6 lbs.|

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION: Do not treat within 48 days of slaughter. Not for use in female dairy cattle 20 months of age or older, including dry dairy cows, or in veal calves. Post-injection site damage (e.g., granulomas, necrosis) can occur. These reactions have disappeared without treatment. Prescribing Information
