RumaMag is an 18% magnesium mixing mineral medicated with Rumensin.
Rumag contains the prilled (dust free) form of magnesium oxide which optimizes magnesuim absorption in the bloodstream while the inclusion of Rumensin allows cattle to better digest feed which increases the rate of weight gain for pastured cattle including, slaughter, stocker, feeder and dairy and beef replacement heifers.

CAUTION: Do not allow horses or other equines access to feeds containing monensin. Ingestion of monensin by equines has been fatal. Monensin- medicated cattle and goat feeds is safe for use in cattle and goats only. Consumption by unapproved species may result in toxic reactions. Do not feed undiluted. Feeding undiluted or mixing errors resulting in high concentrations of Monensin could be fatal to cattle and could be fatal in goats. Do not exceed the levels of monensin recommended in the feeding directions, as reduced average daily gains may result. If feed refusals containing Monensin are fed to other groups of cattle, the concentration of Monensin in refusals and amount of refusals few should be taken into consideration to prevent Monensin overdosing.
WARNING: A withdrawal period has not been established for monensin in pre-ruminating calves. Do not use in calves to be processed for veal.
CAUTION: Contains added copper, do not feed to sheep.
