How To Use LS-90 With Livestock

LS-90 can be used both topically and as an addition to feed or water. The following information is based on user feedback and is not scientificly based. We recommend that you use this information as a guideline and adjust use to your current conditions. Another general guideline is to experiment. When nothing else works, try LS-90. Users are telling us new applications all the time. One day we hope to compile this information into a database our users can access.

Topical Uses

There is nothing complicated about using LS-90. For such topical uses as applying to burns, wire CUTS, castration and branding wounds, and sunburned udders the best results are obtained with our "gel" version of LS-90 called "Gel'Loe", a combination of Aloe and LS-90. Since it doesn't quickly evaporate, it stays in contact much longer than the water. Users report excellent results.

If you donít have any Gelíloe on hand, then spray on a solution LS-90. That solution is prepared in this way:

Shake the bottle of concentrate and measure one ounce (two tablespoons) of it into a gallon of distilled* water.

*distilled water is desirable but not essential. Use the purest water available for a "mixer" for these purposes. The LS-90 activated water will not work quite as well if the water has high mineral content (is "hard water"). This is why we recommend starting out with a small quantity to see if LS-90 will work on your land, on your animals and with your water. Results vary with the quality of the water you mix LS-90 with.

Vigorously shake the gallon of water and it is ready to use.

Although the LS-90 Concentrate is bottled to food-grade standards, that does not mean it is necessarily sterile. Neither is commercially bottled distilled or spring water. Therefore, the user may wish to take suitable precautions against infection in using the mixture on open wounds or broken skin. This might include boiling the gallon of solution after mixing it, or applying an antiseptic at the same time the solution is applied.

While LS-90 apparently enhances the action of disinfectants, we do not claim that it has germicidal or antibiotic qualities in itself.

It's best to spray injured areas 2-3 times per day, but even one treatment is very helpful, according to users.

Internal Consumption

Almost all of the LS-90 used on livestock simply goes into all the water the animal is consuming or into the feed.. And it is a straight-forward process of simply mixing it with the water or feed. The only question is "how much?"

1. In Drinking Water

The following recommendations come from experienced users, but they are not necessarily "the last word" for you, your livestock and your own unique situation. These dilutions are excellent starting points and should produce the typical results for you. In some situations, a "stronger" solution will be needed. In others, diluting the LS-90 even more will show even more cost effective results.

HOGS: one ounce of concentrate per 150 gallons of drinking water is typical usage. One experienced user suggests starting at an ounce to 200 gallons, then gradually increasing the strength of the concentration, while paying attention to the color of the manure. He says you have hit the appropriate "mix" when it is a light gray color.

DAIRY CATTLE: For cows in production, and therefore drinking more water, one ounce of concentrate to 250 gallons. For dry cows, young stock, etc., one ounce to 150 gallons.

BEEF CATTLE: One ounce of concentrate to 150 gallons of drinking water.

HORSES: One ounce of concentrate per 25 gallons of drinking water.

SHEEP: One ounce of concentrate to 100 gallons of drinking water.

DOGS & CATS: One ounce of concentrate to 25 gallons of drinking water.

How to get the concentrate into the drinking water? Sometimes that's obvious and easy, sometimes rather difficult, depending on the method of watering. One animal, watered from a pail, is easy. Ten thousand, watered by automatic systems, would be difficult, unless a system is in place for metering, into the water, small amounts of other liquids. (And for range cows drinking from a creek or river, forget it!)

Keep in mind that what you are really trying to do is get "so much" of the concentrate, through the drinking water, per day, into the animal. For example, at an ounce of concentrate per 250 gallons of water, if a dairy cow drinks 35 gallons per day, she is getting about 1/7 oz. of concentrate per day. And that's what you are trying to do -- get one seventh of an ounce of concentrate into her drinking water or her feed everyday, through whatever method is convenient.

2. Mixed with Feed

Horses: Add four ounces of concentrate to each ton of feed. (In addition to simply getting the "water" to the horses, this will also help preserve high moisture feed... in spite of making it even wetter... because the water is an anti-oxidant.) Mix the concentrate with whatever additional water may be needed to make sure it is mixed well with the feed.

Baby Pigs: Mix 8 ounces of concentrate to each ton of feed.

Growing Pigs: Mix 5-6 ounces of concentrate per ton of feed.

Beef Cattle, Dairy Cattle, Sheep: The basic strategy is to get the same amount of concentrate into the animals as you would via the drinking water. Takes a little calculating, as in the example with the dairy cattle.
