About the Product

 

Controls Major Worms
Internal parasites in cattle and goats can produce severe health and economic losses due to damage to the intestinal lining. This damage results in scar tissue formation and reduced nutrient absorption. These worms also remove large quantities of blood predisposing animals to anemic conditions, disease and reduced performance.

Rumatel 0.97% Crumbles (MS) is indicated in cattle for the removal and control of mature gastrointestinal nematodes including:

  • Stomach worms: (Haemonchus spp., Ostertagia spp,. Trichostrongylus spp.)
  • Small intestine worms: (Cooperia spp., Trichostrongylus spp., Nematodirus spp.)
  • Large intestine worm: (Oesophagostomum radiatum).


Rumatel 0.97% Crumbles (MS) is indicated in goats for the removal and control of mature gastrointestinal nematodes including:

  • Haemonchus contortus.
  • Ostertagia (Teladorsagia) circumcincta
  • Trichostrongylus axei.


Easy-To-Use
Rumatel 0.97% Crumbles (MS) is easy-to-use because a single treatment is all that is needed. There is no extensive drug administration.

Rumatel 0.97% Crumbles (MS) also can be top-dressed, so no special feed mix has to be prepared.

Feeding Directions

 

BEEF CATTLE: Rumatel 0.97% Crumbles (MS) can be fed to incoming feeder calves about 10 days after arrival or as soon as calves have adapted to grain intake. In brood cows and herd sires, worming is recommended twice yearly; in the spring and again in late fall.

DAIRY CATTLE: Worming is recommended at freshening and again about 3 to 4 months into lactation. Rumatel 0.97% Crumbles (MS) does not have a milk withdrawal time and is safe to be administered simultaneously with vaccines, injectable pharmaceuticals, implants, sprays or dips.

GOATS: When goats are on pasture, worming is recommended twice yearly; in the spring and fall. Worm growing goats at weaning as soon as they are adapted to the ration. Worming lactating goats at freshening is an ideal program. In areas of high exposure, reworm goats at 3 to 4 months of lactation.

Use as a single therapeutic treatment by feeding 0.1 pound (0.44 gram morantel tartrate) of medicated ration per 100 pounds of body weight. It may be fed as the sole ration, or mixed with one to two parts of complete feed or as a top-dress. When used as a top-dress, the medication, as well as the underlying feed, should be evenly distributed. Withhold feed overnight prior to treatment to insure the ration will be readily consumed. Group animals by size for optimum efficacy. When medicated feed is all consumed, resume normal feeding. Conditions of constant worm exposure may require re-treatment within two to four weeks.
