Cargill offers new mineral-dewormer combination

Cargill Animal Nutrition NutreBeef Safe-Guard deworming mineral bucket
Company's NutreBeef mineral product now can include Safe-Guard dewormer.

In one easy-to-use package, NutreBeef Safe-Guard Dewormer Mineral combines the proven efficacy Safe-Guard (fenbendazole) from Merck Animal Health with a high-quality, free-choice mineral formula from Cargill Animal Nutrition.

To use the product, simply replace your regular mineral with the dewormer mineral for three to six days when it’s time to deworm, says Anna Taylor, beef technical specialist. When the medicated mineral has been consumed by your herd, return to your existing mineral program.

Safe-Guard goes directly into the gastrointestinal tract to attack the energy metabolism function of internal parasites. Once ingested by the parasite, it cannot be excreted. This means even if cattle only consume a partial dose of the medicated mineral daily, the Safe-Guard will accumulate in the parasite until it reaches the lethal dose.

Safe-Guard dewormer has been proven 95% effective in feed-through forms killing internal parasites right where they live – in the gut, says Harold Newcomb, Merck Animal Health technical services veterinarian. He adds that by deworming in the pasture, NutreBeef Safe-Guard Dewormer Mineral eliminates the stress, risks and financial impacts of handling cattle.
