Prevention of primary iodine deficiency:
LAMBS: Treat at weaning.
EWES: Treat 1 month before mating, or not less than 2 months before lambing.
RAMS: Treat 1 month before mating.
CALVES: Treat at weaning.
CATTLE: Treat 1 month before mating, or not less than 2 months before lambing.
Prevention of induced iodine deficiency: In all stock, treat at least 2 months prior to the feeding of Brassica or other goitrogenic (goitre-producing) crops. Repeat treatment annually to avoid subclinical iodine deficiency. Dairy cattle may require frequent treatment to maintain adequate iodine levels.
