(Monensin as monensin sodium)

Get more energy from every mouthful!

Rumensin™ is a common ingredient in supplementary feeds for lactating and dry cows that increases milk production under many conditions. Rumensin™ enables cows to get more energy from every mouthful by altering the composition of the microbial population in the rumen, thereby improving feed conversion efficiency and milk production. In addition, Rumensin™ aids in reducing the severity of non-clinical ketosis as well as the prevention and control of coccidiosis. Reducing the challenge of this disease in dairy calves and heifers can lead to an increased rate of weight gain.

Rumensin™ is scientifically proven to improve feed efficiency, reproductive performance and aids in the control of bloat and prevention of coccidiosis.

Directions For Use


Dogs, horses and other equines must not be allowed access to feeds containing Rumensin™. Ingestion of Rumensin™ may be fatal in these species.


The recommended levels of Rumensin™ must not be exceeded. Excessively high levels due to mixing errors can cause reduced feed intake, poor growth, diarrhoea, and death.

Responses to Rumensin™ are unlikely if nutrient intake is significantly restricted. Responses to Rumensin™ in pasture cattle may not occur if pasture quality is poor or if weather conditions are very hot and dry.

Mixing Directions

IMPORTANT: Rumensin™ should be thoroughly mixed with the other feed components and care should be taken in transporting mixed feed to prevent settling.

1 Calculated on a 90% dry matter basis. Rations containing silage or other wet feeds should be corrected to a 90% dry matter basis for calculation of the appropriate monensin dosage.

2 ppm = parts per million which is equivalent to mg/kg

3 Feeding monensin to lactating dairy cows may result in decreased milk fat percentage, but there is no effect on total fat yield

4 kg BW = kilograms bodyweight
