Bambermycins (flavophospholipol) - 4g/lb
Produced by fermentation of 4 strains of gray-green streptomyces.
Flavomycin (bambermycins) is a performance enhancing antibiotic intended and available solely for use in animal nutrition. Its effect is to inhibit the synthesis of the bacterial cell wall. Flavomycin is predominately effective against gram-positive pathogenic bacteria. However, it does not have significant action against lactobacillus, bifidobacterium, and other protective bacteria.
For improved weight gain and feed efficiency in broiler chickens, turkeys and swine.
Flavomycin has no precautions or warnings to humans on its label pertaining to mixing and handling and is non-hazardous when used according to label directions.
Orally, following good homogenization with feed. It is approved for combination use with most coccidiostats and feed additive products. (Consult Feed Additive Compendium for a complete list of combination approvals.)
Chickens (broilers), turkeys (growing) and swine (growing and finishing).
Consult Feed Additive Compendium for approved use rates in target species.
Flavomycin has no withdrawal requirement. Flavomycin is not absorbed by the intestine and no measurable residues are found in edible tissues even when fed at up to 50 times the normal recommended dosage.
Store in a cool, dry place.
Two (2) years from the date of manufacture.
50 lb (22.7 kg) bags.
Flavomycin has no precautions or warning to humans on its label pertaining to mixing and handling and is non-hazardous when used according to label directions. There is no significant effect on the environment since bambermycins excreted in the feces is rapidly degraded in the soil and in lagoons by natural organisms, and is not absorbed by plants grown in soil containing manure of animals fed Flavomycin. Cattle and horses can safely graze pastures containing manure of animals fed Flavomycin.
