    • Feeding Directions

      Description

      This feed is designed for show cattle under 900 pounds, but may be fed to cattle of any age or weight with proper management. Developing show cattle should eat approximately 2.5-3% of body weight and should be fed hay free-choice. Frame, genetics and management will determine finishing period.
       
      For the medicated option, feed 15 pounds per head per day to growing cattle to provide 70 mg chlortetracycline.

      Feed at the rate of 2 lbs per 100 lbs of bodyweight to provide 22.7 mg Decoquinate per 100 pounds of body weight (0.5 mg/kg) per day. Feed at least 28 days during period of exposure to coccidiosis or when it is likely to be a hazard.

      Caution

      Bentonite should not be used in Decoquinate feeds. Store in a dry, well-ventilated area protected from rodents and insects. Do not feed moldy or insect-infested feed to animals as it may cause illness, performance loss or death.

      Important

      This product is to be fed only to the animal species as directed on the label.

      Winning Matrix

      Efficient production requires a thorough understanding and application of the fundamental principles of good husbandry and sanitation. The Purina Winning Philosophy program will help you step into the spotlight.
       
      1.GOOD BREEDING: Practice a sound genetic program of selection and culling. Visit a professional breeder for more information. Know the feeling when you have that perfect animal that has the best potential to win.
       
      2.GOOD FEEDING: Proper nutrition for different needs and lifestyles starts with Honor® Show products. Feed at regular times at least two times daily, with three daily feedings preferred. You can’t become a Grand Champion without the best nutrition.
       
      3.SOUND MANAGEMENT: A clean environment minimizes stress and can improve average daily gains. Clean stalls,remove debris and provide fresh water daily. The daily attention to detail is the difference between a Grand Champion and lower placement.
       
      4.PREVENTIVE HEALTH: Establish an effective health program with your local veterinarian. A sick animal never makes it to the top.
       
      These are the building blocks of the Honor® Show program and the keys to successful production. Practical application of these basic principles will not only enhance your animal’s growth and development, but also increase its potential of winning on the show circuit.

      Management Practices

      1. When making a ration change, allow 7-10 days for animals to adjust to the new ration.
      2. Provide a source of fresh, clean water at all times.
      3. Do not allow fine material to accumulate in feeders.
      4. Provide adequate, well-protected and well-managed bunk space for each animal to prevent feed from becoming wet and moldy.
      5. When fed from a self-feeder, adjust feeder to minimize quantity of feed accumulating in trough.
      6. Cattle should be vaccinated against enterotoxemia.
      7. Consult your veterinarian for the recommended health program for your local area. This includes internal and external parasite control.
      8. Provide plain salt and Purina Wind & Rain® All Season mineral free choice.

Complete and Consistent

We have been using Fitters Edge for our show cattle for more than 10 years. Fitters Edge is the most consistent feed we have used. Our cattle stay on feed and perform at the highest level while traveling the show circuit.

Wow!

I raise Brahman and Brahman influence cattle. I have seen great success with fitters edge in the show ring. This will add the extra fat and help with gut health too. My heifers are always aggressive eaters when feeding this. The coat quality is impressive when feeding this.
