    Some have been having trouble locating the Deccox-M. I was looking over a new PBS book that I got in the mail, and they have a couple of products that might work just as well. One is "Calf Enhancer" by Advanced Agri Solutions and it has Rumensin and direct-fed microbials. The other product is "Pro-Bac-C" by AgriLabs and it has Lasalocid and live, naturally occurring microorganisms, yeast and vitamins in it. So, maybe Kaye or Vicki could comment here on these products????????

    I don't have a clue except make sure anyof your feed stuffs don't have a different cocci med in them in otherwords don't combine Rumensin with a different med.

    Never used the two but will give you doses and I'd certainly check fecals to see if it's working.
    Pro-Bac-C:
    lasalocid
    The dose for goats is 2.2mg/kg for goats on a continuous basis. I'm assuming this means daily.
    According to their directions...supply 1mg/kg for a calf. So the dose would be double for a goat.
    LOL...this is an easy one-WHEW!....110#'s is 50kg and 1/8th ounce will provide 50mg of lasalocid or 1mg/kg for a calf. A goat kid that weighs 55#'s needs 1/8th ounce. break it down to the kid's weight.

    Rumesin is a tradename for the drug monensin. I don't have a continuous dose for goats on that. I do have a "added to grain" amount. 15-20 grams per ton for goats. As soon as chores are done, I'll try to figure you a dose on this one.
    I will say here that I "shy away" from the drug monensin. And, no, I can't give you a reason right now...only that red flags are coming up in brain on that particular drug.

    It also has a shelf life, 30 days when mixed in feed. Makes you wonder about the goat blocks with them in it that sit for months in the barns? Vicki
