WHAT IS CYDECTIN® MINERALISED?

  • Contains moxidectin – the most potent ML
  • Broad spectrum control
  • 14 days persistent activity against barber’s pole worm and small brown stomach worm
  • CYDECTIN MINERALISED is a drench and mineral supplement in one

RECOMMENDED FOR

Use as a summer drench in medium to low rainfall areas, or as a prime-lamb drench.

WHY CHOOSE CYDECTIN MINERALISED?

  • Contains moxidectin

    Moxidectin is the most potent member of the macrocyclic lactone (ML) family of drenches, meaning it can kill worms resistant to ivermectin and abamectin.

  • Broad spectrum parasite control

    CYDECTIN MINERALISED is highly effective against all major internal parasites that are susceptible to ML drenches, including gastrointestinal roundworms and large lungworm. These worms reduce overall productivity, especially in young animals weight gains and wool growth can be reduced significantly. CYDECTIN MINERALISED also controls itch mite.

  • Persistent activity

    CYDECTIN MINERALISED prevents reinfection with Teladorsagia (Ostertagia) spp and barber’s pole worm (Haemonchus contortus) for at least 14 days. It prevents pasture contamination by Teladorsagia (Ostertagia) spp eggs for at least 35 days and barber’s pole worm (Haemonchus contortus) eggs for at least 30 days. Persistent activity is important when there is significant pasture contamination, as it can delay the need for subsequent drenching. Preventing pasture contamination by eggs can also delay the need for subsequent drenching.

  • Contains 5 essential trace minerals

    Marginal and chronic mineral deficiencies in sheep can affect their health and well-being which in turn limits productive capacity and ultimately your bottom line. CYDECTIN MINERALISED is formulated to give your animals a boost when their mineral levels are low.

    Common diseases and conditions associated with mineral deficiencies include:

    • Swayback;
    • White muscle disease
    • Bone & skeletal disorders; such as spontaneous bone fractures.
    • Neurological disorders;
    • Increased susceptibility to infection & parasites; and
    • Goitre in lambs, or early lamb mortality
    • Wool abnormalities such as steely wool.

    Mineral supplementation has also been found to aid in:

    • Increasing fertility & conception;
    • Lifting lambing survival;
    • Reducing illthrift & anorexia; & thus
    • Improving growth.
       
  • Safety

    It can be safely used concurrently with other treatments providing that they do not include copper, cobalt and selenium.
