New Bovatec Block

Increase daily gains of pasture-fed cattle.

Published on: Feb 25, 2011

Alpharma Animal Health has a convenient new way to provide ionophore supplementation to pasture cattle. Called Bovatec 2.2, the new 44-pound block contains 2.2 grams/pound of Bovatec (lasalocid).

Bovatec is an ionophore feed additive which has demonstrated efficacy as a performance enhancer, improving the rate of gain in cattle.

Bovatec can increase daily gains of pasture-fed cattle by as much as 0.12 to 0.18 lbs per head per day, allowing stockers to reach their full growth potential and replacement heifers to cycle, calve and reach full reproductive potential earlier.

To locate a local Bovatec 2.2 supplier, contact Alpharma at (800) 834-6470 or
