Safe-Guard 32SG Mineral
Safe-Guard 32SG Mineral
Type C Medicated Free-Choice Mineral with Fenbendazole
All-in-one. And done. Dewormer Mineral.
Deworming doesn't have to be hard on you or your cattle.
Deworming can be stressful for cattle and time consuming for producers. Luckily, there is a solution. Safe-Guard® 32SG Mineral is the cattleman’s choice for easy, effective deworming; no chutes, corrals or trailers required. Safe-Guard®, the only dewormer available in a free-choice mineral form, takes the guess work out of deworming, providing a safe and effective option for producers.
As a Type C medicated free-choice mineral, Safe-Guard® 32SG Mineral contains fenbendazole which targets:
- Brown stomach
- Small stomach
Internal parasites can be harmful to your cattle and your bottom line. Research conducted by Iowa State University estimates producers lose up to $190 per animal, primarily from reduced gain and reproductive function, when cattle are not dewormed.1
How Does It Work?
The goal of any effective deworming plan is to disrupt the parasite’s lifecycle, preventing further contamination of pastures. When timed properly, dewormers can interrupt the larval and adult stages of parasites, helping to reduce the parasite load in the fields through a decrease in parasite shedding from infected animals. While deworming cattle is the first step, there is still risk of re-infection when cattle are exposed to parasites in larvae-contaminated forage. Due to its free-choice mineral form, Safe-Guard 32SG Mineral provides consistent protection to the animal, reducing the risk of gaps in deworming. Once consumed, Safe-Guard attacks the energy metabolism function in the parasite and it continues to build until it reaches the lethal dose in the parasite. This allows cattle to focus their energy on growth and reproduction instead of combating parasites.
