Formax Fly Control IGR Breeder Mineral


It’s fly season and, if you haven’t started your summer fly mineral program, now is the time to begin. Our Formax IGR minerals use methoprene insect growth regulator for feedthrough horn fly control. Formax IGR minerals are a proven, cost-effective way to increase weight gain, improve reproduction and reduce the spread of disease by reducing the horn fly population on your farm.

For producers who realize the importance and benefits of a highly fortified mineral, we want to introduce Formax Fly Control IGR Breeder Mineral. This and all Formax minerals are specifically formulated for cattle in the Southeast. Our soils, forages and annual rainfall make our mineral needs different from other parts of the country. We use small particle size as well as MINTREX chelated trace mineral technology to improve absorption. We weather coat the minerals to protect them from rain and humidity.

Formax Fly Control IGR Breeder has very high levels of vitamins A, D3 and, especially, vitamin E to help fight summertime stress in your animals. Copper, zinc and manganese levels have also been elevated and chelated for superior reproduction, immunity, hoof integrity and overall physiological function.

If you are currently using our Silver line of Formax minerals, this has the same trace mineral and vitamin package plus IGR has been added for horn fly control.

Keep flies off your herd and improve their performance this summer with Formax Fly Control IGR Breeder.
