Cydectin Long Acting delivers 5X2 the active ingredient. The high concentration of MOXIDECTIN delivered by CYDECTIN LONG-ACTING controls harder to kill parasites3 for longer4, providing superior productivity.
Most cattle pour-ons and injections only last 14-42 days5. With Cydectin Long Acting you can replace up to 4 treatments with a single dose of Cydectin LA Cattle5,6.
The reliability and potency of Cydectin you’ve come to expect with the longest lasting protection against key cattle parasites5,6.
In uniform and winter dominant rainfall regions, larval challenge will be high over late autumn to winter. A late summer - autumn treatment with Cydectin Long Acting will strategically reduce risk from contaminated pastures and avoid repeat drench treatments.
• For a Spring drop calf, Cydectin Long Acting could be its first drench
• For an Autumn drop calf it may be the second drench
In late winter to spring a highly effective ‘clean up’ drench can complete a program. Cydectin Platinum Dual Active LV Pour-on will provide highly effective and convenient worm control of all key species’.
Worm control programs vary according to regions in Australia. Consult your local Virbac representative for the ideal timing of your drench treatments.
Paddocks often become heavily contaminated with cattle tick because intermittent use of short-acting treatments has a limited ability to reduce the overall paddock burden.
Strategic use of Cydectin Long Acting for Cattle brings a new approach to cattle tick control.
An effective initial program is treatment of cattle and placing them at a high stocking rate into known contaminated paddock/s. Repeat treatment 56 days later completes a ‘sweeper’ system, where for at least 121 days, no viable eggs have been added to paddock. After 121 days the paddock becomes a ‘safe pasture’ and can then be used by other cattle such as cows and calves.
Once paddocks are cleaner, strategic tick treatments can be given as needed in Spring and Autumn. Other effective actives can also be applied as necessary, 56 or more days later. Tick resistance testing can be done to identify effective chemicals besides macrocylic lactones.
Your tick control program:
• Day 0 (Cydectin LA)
• Day 56 (Cydectin LA)
This will effectively control cattle tick to protect productivity but not eradicate.
