Horse supplement can help control flies
There’s a way to break the fly life cycle in equines, according to one company, by feeding a horse a supplement containing an insect growth regulator.
Solitude IGR is a safe and effective way to help prevent the development of house and stable flies. In just two short weeks, Solitude IGR feed-through pellets can eliminate most, if not all, house and stable flies.
Horse owners can see results after just two weeks, and the maximum benefit after four to six weeks, with no ill effects on horses, other mammals or beneficial insects.
A half ounce in a horse’s daily feed, regardless of breed or size, is the dose of the supplement.
Besides using Solitude IGR to curb the fly population, producers should consider recommended tactics: Manure management, removing standing water and maintaining good hygiene.

Research shows copper improves pig performance
Supplementing nursery pigs with Mintrex Cu chelated
trace mineral improved daily gain by 3 percent and feed conversion ratio by 2.6 percent versus other forms of trace minerals, according to a recent meta-analysis of available study results.
The meta-analysis on Mintrex Cu supplementation
in nursery pigs included seven studies conducted between 2008 and 2013 at research facilities in Missouri and Colorado. Mintrex Cu is a product of St. Louis-based Novus International. Studies in China, Brazil and Europe on growing-finishing pig diets were also reviewed. The results showed that weaned pigs fed Mintrex Cu had a reduction in diarrhea incidence by 23 percent, as compared to other trace mineral forms. And, growing-finishing pigs fed the supplement experienced an improved immune response and improved digestibility in a basic corn-soybean diet.
Mintrex Cu is a bioavailable source of copper and the only mineral chelated with Alimet feed supplement. Research has proven that Mintrex delivers more bioavailable trace mineral to the small intestine than other leading organic trace minerals. The more bioavailable a mineral is, the lower the dietary concentration needed and the less mineral excreted to the environment. Increased bioavailability reduces feed costs and minimizes nutrient waste. Copper is an essential component of a functional immune system and contributes to performance in a variety of ways including iron utilization, nutrient absorption and digestion, and general metabolic function. Copper also has similar antibacterial and growth promoting effects as antibiotics.
