HOW TO BREAK THE HORN FLY CYCLE:
Altosid IGR recommends that you put out your IGR tubs out before you see the first flies and have it out until your first hard frost. If you follow these guidelines you will get the best results.
If you wait until a lot of flies are on the cows, its already become a problem and we have to break the life cycle of the fly. When this happens, it takes a lot longer to get on top of your fly problem.
IGR works by the cow ingesting it (in the form of the PG360-IGR Riomax® formula), it moves through the digestive tract and ends up in the manure. Here the fly larvae feeds off of it and dies; thus breaking that horn fly cycle.
Will this get rid of all my flies?
One thing to understand is you will never get rid of all of the flies. The important thing to focus on is where the economic impact starts. Studies have shown that fly populations of around 200 flies per cow do not cause an economic impact. Left untreated, there can be up to 4,000 flies per animal - that's when stress, weight loss and disease comes in and costs you big time!
"Man, I really wish I would've taken some pictures of my cows a few weeks ago. I used your IGR tubs this summer. My neighbors' cows all had hundreds and hundreds of flies on them and they were all bunched up in the corners of their pastures, but my cows had MAYBE 15-20 flies on them and they were spread out all over!"

When should I feed PG360-IGR?
PG360-IGR is built off our core formula PG360.
PG360 is designed to be fed year-round. It's self-regulating forage balancer technology enables it to fill nutrition needs no matter the season, location or forage.
Many producers feed PG360 year-round, yet some only feed it at specific times of the year. Since the producers that see the best results are the ones that feed it the most, we strongly recommend feeding it continuously if possible.
Feeding it continuously gives animals a even nutrition plane and users typically see consumption averaging at the low end when using it year-round.
For a cow the recommended rate is 1/8 to 1/3 pound per head per day.
