About the Product

Anaplasmosis

Anaplasmosis is a contagious blood-borne disease caused by a rickettsia organism. The most common species causing disease in cattle is Anaplasma marginale. The disease in spread through the transfer of blood such as insect bites or using contaminated instruments. Symptoms of anaplasmosis will depend on the age of the animals with calves rarely showing symptoms but becoming carriers for life and the symptoms increasing in severity with age. Symptoms include depression, decreased feed intake, fever, anemia, paleness, yellow mucous membranes, rapid breathing, increased belligerence, dehydration, constipation and sudden death.

The recommended daily consumption of Aureo during the vector season will aid in the control of anaplasmosis in cattle. It may be necessary to maintain continuous year round feeding of Aureo depending on geographic location, carrier exposure and insect bite exposure.

Consistent Consumption

Cattle will consistently be drawn to the highly palatable Easylix® Aureo Anaplaz 700 Block. Reliable consumption is achieved through the use of molasses and added salt, along with other highly palatable ingredients.

Good Pastures: Young, well-managed active growing grasses.

Medium Pastures: Active growing maturing grasses of medium quality.

It is essential that cattle fed medicated feed blocks have been adapted to non-medicated block consumption for at least two weeks prior to medicated block feeding. Cattle that are not adapted to block supplementation may not consume the product at the proper level or they may over-consume the product due to inadequate prior supplementation. Begin by providing one block per five cows. Adjust block numbers and block feeding management procedures for optimum intake. Adequate Easylix Aureo Anaplaz 700 Block with chlortetracycline consumption is required at all times to assure effective drug activity. It is essential that good block husbandry practices be followed at all times. Block feeding techniques include, but are not limited to, a variety of practices. Increased consumption may often be obtained by moving feeding stations into shaded or loafing areas, closer to water source, increasing blocks availability to the animals, or combinations of these practices. For optimum consumption, adequate forage or pasture of medium to good quality should be available at all times. Do not provide other choices of free choice salt or minerals.

Easylix Aureo Anaplaz 700 Block is designed to be fed during periods of the year when vector carriers are abundant and the probability of anaplasmosis transmission is high (last frost to first frost).

Note: Body weight of mature cows that are in late gestation as well as cattle that are grazing lush summer pasture can change rapidly. It is essential that cow body weight is monitored to ensure adequate consumption of chlortetracycline. If consumption falls below recommended levels, manage blocks to increase consumption as stated above or discontinue feeding blocks and hand feed a chlortetracycline supplement at the rate of 0.5 mg per pound of body weight.

Store in a cool, dry place.

Livestock remedy - not for human consumption.
