FLAVOMYCIN 8% ( FEED GRADE )
Flavomycin® (bambermycins) is a performance enhancing antibiotic intended and available solely for use in animal nutrition. Flavomycin is predominately effective against gram-positive pathogenic bacteria; however it does not have significant action against lactobacillus, bifidobacterium, and other protective bacteria. Its effect is to inhibit the synthesis of the bacterial cell wall.
● Improved weight gain and feed efficiency in broiler chickens, turkeys and swine. ● Consistent use rate for over 15 years (1-4 grams/ton). ● No Human Use - Not classified as "Medically Important for Humans". ● Studies have shown the use of bambermycin-supplemented feed reduced the duration and prevalence of salmonella shedding in pigs. ● No measurable residues in edible tissues - No Withdrawal Required. ● No significant Environmental Impact - Degrades rapidly in the soil and is not absorbed by plants fertilized with bambermycins-containing manure. ● Non-Toxic - Chronic toxicity and safety tests confirm no abnormalities associated with the use of Flavomycin in broiler chickens and turkeys. ● Can be used with Competitive Exclusion Products.
