LIVESTOCK FLY CONTROL MINERAL TUB

PG360-IGR logo

AVERAGE COST: $0.37 PER HEAD PER DAY

Increase conception rates by 3 - 10%! Fewer open cows and more calves come fall means more money in your pocket. 

Increase pounds (by 10 - 40 pounds) with framier, greener, heavier calves. Not the baby fat your calves will lose after weaning.

Achieve 15 - 30% forage savings by better utilizing your existing resources. Improving digestion efficiency helps your herd get more out of every mouthful so your pastures last longer and you save hay.

With Altosid IGR as part of the formula, PG360-IGR™ is designed to break the lifecycle of the horn fly. According to anOklahoma State University study by Central Life Sciences, controlling horn flies with Altosid IGR can produce daily weight gain as much as 15.8% greater than cattle not on IGR.

PG360-IGR™ is an ultra-concentrated lick tub. Like the original PG360™ tub, the high concentration of PG360-IGR™ allows animals to meet their nutritional requirements with very small amounts of product.

Because it's highly concentrated, PG360-IGR™ has a low consumption rate - between 1/8 and 1/3 of a pound per head per day. This low consumption ensures your cost per day is kept in check. Plus, PG360-IGR™ is backed up by our COSTGUARD90 Consumption Guarantee! Take the risk off your shoulders!

We understand that flies can be detrimental to the performance of your livestock. That's why the PG360-IGR™ formula includes Altosid IGR, which is specifically designed to fight horn flies.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

Be aware that there are several factors we cannot determine that do affect your cost and consumption including, but not limited to:

  • Current Body Condition/Stage of Production
  • Animal Size
  • Health Status
  • Weather & Location
  • Water & Feed Quality
  • & More!

It is challenging to determine exact costs when there are so many variables. If you wish to get a quote customized further to your operation or have any questions, don't hesitate to give us a shout at 507-637-0733!

We'll be upfront with ya. Our products DO have a higher upfront price than many others on the market. BUT, on a cost per head per day basis, which is where the rubber meets the road, the price is the same or many times less than competitor products. Additionally, they are very concentrated products, which means they will last 2-3 times longer than other tubs out there.

Keep in mind that when feeding Riomax®, there is no need to supplement any additional mineral - so you can subtract that cost as well.

When should I feed PG360-IGR?

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 flies are all over the cows, they have already become a problem, you then have to break the life cycle of the fly. When this happens, it can take much 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), where it then moves through the digestive tract and ends up in the manure. Here, the fly larvae feed off of it and die; thus breaking that horn fly cycle.

For a cow the recommended rate is 1/8 to 1/3 pound per head per day.


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 come in and costs you big time!

Horn flies are one of the most detrimental flies to the cow. They cause the most damage in the beef industry, about $1 billion per year! That's why Riomax® uses Altosid IGR to target horn flies.

According to an Oklahoma State University study done by Central Life Sciences, controlling horn flies with Altosid IGR can produce daily weight gains as much as 15.8% higher than untreated cattle.

PG360-IGR­ REVIEWS

"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!"

Williston, ND

"I'd swear by the Riomax® tubs to anyone! I have tried several other brands of tubs and you get the same thing - up and down consumption. But with Riomax® I just can’t believe how consistent consumption is!”

Ryder, ND

“I could see it in the cows, one of the driest years we've had and the cows kept in good shape. Their hair was dark (no rusty hair from copper deficiency) and they look as good as we've ever seen! I thought the calves weighed up real good - I’m sure it paid!”
