Zeta-cypermethrin is a synthetic pyrethroid. Synthetic pyrethroids may cause skin irritation. In herds that react, a large proportion of the herd may be involved. Signs may include increased body movements, arching of the back, stamping and increased tail swishing. Occasionally an increase in salivation and tear formation may occur. These signs may be more severe in lactating dairy cows as they may also kick whist being milked in the dairy. If present, signs usually disappear within 72 hours.
Use only an Elanco approved applicator. DO NOT use any other applicator.
