Item Information

Purina's Wind and Rain Storm Fly Control mineral with Altosid (Insect Growth Regulator) prevents the breeding of horn flies in the manure of treated cattle. Wind and Rain Storm cattle minerals' large particle size and special formulation keeps the mineral from absorbing water and blowing out of the feeder. Exclusive Storm technology provides the ultimate in weather resistance to reduce waste and makes Wind and Rain Storm Formula more economical to feed than conventional loose minerals.

  • Fly control with Altosid (IGR) - Prevents the breeding of horn flies in the manure of treated cattle
  • Balanced mineral nutrition - Wind and Rain Storm minerals contain the proper balance and ratios of all 14 essential cattle minerals
  • Large particle size - Increased particle size and weather-resistant formula support reduced water absorption and less mineral blowing our of the feeder
  • Consistent intake and less waste - Exclusive Storm Formulation nearly eliminates water retention and clumping or bricking. That means cattle will continue to consume the mineral even after its been wet. Though it resists moisture, it does not prevent digestion

Purina Wind and Rain Fly Control Cattle Minerals, 50 lb. is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from STOP PINK EYE So happy we used this mineral to control the flys and stop treating pink eye
Date published: 2016-10-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cows Like it Start using this before the horn flies start emerging in spring. Place near water and the cows will utilize it. Keeps the horn fly maggots from emerging as adults. I don't use a salt block with this to make sure they consume some.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the same. Have been buying this product at my regular feed store. Got this from Tractor Supply. Bag looked identical but upon comparison of the tag, I realized it was a 7.5 and the feed store had a 12. Need to read the tag. Not exactly the same product just cheaper.

how much altosid is in this mineral grams per ton how much should they consume

Asked by: timgant
Thanks for choosing the Wind and Rain, here is the percentage. ACTIVE INGREDIENT S-Methoprene (CAS #65733-16-6) ........................................................................ 0.014 % Double check your tag for feeding rates, but most of the minerals we make have this feeding rate: Allow free choice to cattle. Cattle should consume an average of 0.286 ounces of this product per 100 lb of cattle body weight per day, which is equivalent to 4 ounces per day for a 1,400 lb cow.

Does the fly control keep flys off the cows or just keep the larva in the manure from breeding???

Asked by: Codycole63
Thanks for choosing Purina. The Altosid used in the mineral and tubs is not an insect repellent. It is an insect growth regulator which works by disrupting the breeding cycle. For the full benefit, it will take 30 days continual use and then throughout the remainder of summer. This is why we suggest to start the program 30 days before the last frost in the spring, and continue 30 days after the first frost in the fall.
