Feeding Directions

Best Results
For use in a patty formulation:
Mix, by weight, 1 part dry feed with 1.3 parts heavy sugar syrup, corn syrup, or liquid sucrose.  Mix thoroughly and examine for desired consistency.  For best results, mix at least 24 hours ahead of intended use.  The product will continually absorb moisture and may need to have more syrup added to achieve desired consistency.

For use in a liqud formulation:
Mix 5% dry powder (by weight) with 95% heavy syrup, corn syrup, or liquid sucrose.  Mix slowly on a low speed for 30 minutes after all the supplement is in the solution to avoid separation.  Do not allow the mixer to whip air into the liquid as this may cause separation.  For best results, use the full 5% recommended inclusion rate as adding less reduces the suspension agents in the mix and may cause separation.
Caution
1. Honey for sale must be derived from nectar; do not feed any bee supplement in liquid form when planning to extract honey for sale.
2. Store in a dry, well-ventilated area protected from rodents and insects.  Do not feed moldy or insect-infested supplement to animals as it may cause illness, performance loss or death.
Important
Use only as directed
Special Considerations
You may consider wearing a particle mask, this supplement is ground very finely and particles may float into the air when mixing.
