When used as directed, XF 102 COW  MINERAL with Altosid® will provide sufficient S-Methoprene insect growth regulator to prevent the emergence of adult horn flies from manure of treated cattle.  Existing adult horn flies will not be affected.  Start feeding before horn flies appear and continue use until cold weather marks the end of the horn fly season.  Allow free choice to cattle. Cattle should consume an average of 0.4 ounces of XF 102 COW MINERAL with Altosid per 100 lbs. of body weight per day, which is equivalent to 4 ounces per day for a 1,000 pound animal.
1. Assure cattle are not starved for nutrients in XF 102 COW  MINERAL with Altosid by providing them prior to feeding XF 102 COW  MINERAL with Altosid.
2. Offer cattle 50 lbs. of XF 102 COW  MINERAL with Altosid for every 15 head of cattle.
3. Remove all other self limiting nutritional supplements.
4. Locate XF 102 COW MINERAL with Altosid where cattle congregate (watering , loafing, shade areas).
5. Replenish XF 102 COW  MINERAL with Altosid on a regular basis as needed.
6. If intake of XF 102 COW  MINERAL with Altosid is below 0.4 ounces per 100 lbs. animal body weight per day, increase the number of feeding locations and/or change location(s) to areas more frequented by cattle.
7. If intake of XF 102 COW  MINERAL with Altosid is above 0.4 ounces per 100 lbs. animal body weight per day, reduce the number of feeding locations and/or change location(s) to areas less frequented by cattle.
8. Introduction of this product after adult horn fly infestation is established will require treatment of cattle with adulticides if elimination of the adult fly population is desired.
