The feed-through fly control active ingredients offered by ULTRALYX — Altosid®, Clarifly® and Rabon® —prevent the development of adult flies by disrupting the fly’s life cycle through the manure of treated animals. They have no direct effect on adult flies and for this reason, use of adulticide products must be used for about the first month to achieve effective fly control.

There are many reasons why animals may not be consuming correct amounts of mineral supplement. Some of the more common reasons are 1) presence of other sources of free choice salt, 2) not enough mineral feeders for the number of animals, 3) incorrect placement of mineral feeders, 4) mixing minerals with other ingredients, 5) improperly stored minerals and 6) contaminated or dirty minerals.
Because ULTRALYX supplements contain naturally occurring feed ingredients some variations are to be expected. Slight variations in particle size, color or smell is not uncommon and does not mean that the formula has changed or that the product is bad for your animals. If in doubt, call us at 1-888-718-3493 with your label in hand and we can look up the specific batch for you to confirm that all is well with your supplement.
Feed labeling rules dictate that all sheep products list a copper minimum and maximum if the copper level exceeds 20 ppm. If small amounts of copper are present, it is from background levels found in grains, molasses and other minerals. Rest assured, if a product is labeled for use in sheep, it is guaranteed safe.
