You may be familiar with Rabon™ Oral Larvicide — a feed-through larvicide that plays an important part of an integrated fly control program for beef and dairy cattle, swine and horses. Now, Bayer Animal Health has introduced the Rabon Calculator app to assist dealers, distributors and end users in computing optimal inclusion rates of Rabon. The free app is now available for download on smartphones and tablets at both the Apple™ App Store and Google Play Store™ for Android™.
Among the first of its kind in the insecticide space, the app uses basic inputs — such as animal size, number of animals and feed mix size — to calculate correct amounts of Rabon for feed-through control of all four major fly species in cattle.
Additional benefits of the app include the ability to:
- Calculate applications for feed inclusion or mineral batch feeding for small and large herds;
- Determine optimal Rabon intake for any specific animal;
- Be more reactive to changes in herds and deliver the right amount of product to effectively managing horn, face, stable and house flies.
The app is for use with Rabon™ 7.76 Oral Larvicide Premix and Rabon™ 97.3 Oral Larvicide formulations.
The app can be downloaded by searching “Rabon Calculator” on iTunes™, Google Play™ or any application store.
