Here’s something that deserves a good, long look:
UP TO 150 DAYS
of Parasite Control in a Single Dose11 - Dependent upon parasite species, as referenced in FOI summary and LONGRANGE product label.
LONGRANGE® (eprinomectin) is the first extended-release injection that delivers up to 150 days of parasite control in a single dose.11 - Dependent upon parasite species, as referenced in FOI summary and LONGRANGE product label. Thanks to its unique THERAPHASE™ formulation, a single treatment works long enough to break the parasite life cycle and reduce pasture reinfection. And that’s something conventional dewormers just can’t match.5-75 - CYDECTIN Injectable product label.6 - DECTOMAX Injectable product label.7 - SAFE-GUARD product label.
LONGRANGE is worth the investment.
LONGRANGE gives you up to 150 days of parasite protection – so you can break the cycle with one convenient treatment.11 - Dependent upon parasite species, as referenced in FOI summary and LONGRANGE product label. And that’s what makes LONGRANGE worth the investment.
To get the same level of control with conventional products, you’d need three or more applications, each one timed to start working before the last one wears off.5-75 - CYDECTIN Injectable product label.6 - DECTOMAX Injectable product label.7 - SAFE-GUARD product label. When you add up those product costs, labor, handling stress and shrink, one dose of LONGRANGE makes a lot of sense. It’s all the body condition, reproduction and weaning weight benefits of a strategic deworming program in a single treatment.
Nothing else comes close to the control of LONGRANGE.5-75 - CYDECTIN Injectable product label.6 - DECTOMAX Injectable product label.7 - SAFE-GUARD product label.
*SAFE-GUARD has no demonstrated persistent activity.
It takes about 100 days of continuous control to break the parasite life cycle. But you can see from the chart that conventional dewormers don’t work nearly that long.
Only LONGRANGE contains the THERAPHASE™ formulation.
This unique formulation allows LONGRANGE to go to work quickly and continue to work for an extended period of time. This built-in ability to break the parasite life cycle with one seasonal treatment is available only in LONGRANGE.
*Plasma concentrations between 0.5 and 1 ng/mL would represent the minimal drug level required for optimal nematocidal activity.
Pharmacokinetic studies of LONGRANGE in cattle indicate that effective plasma levels remain for an extended period of time (at least 100 days).
See how LONGRANGE works to deliver all season long.
You have a lot to gain with LONGRANGE
What you don’t know could be costing you.
“My dewormer works throughout the grazing season.”
LONGRANGE is the only product currently on the market that offers season-long parasite control. With conventional products, reinfection from the pasture can occur in a matter of weeks. And that costs you money.8,98 - Whittier E, Currin JF. Current Strategies in Parasite Control in Virginia Beef Cattle. Virginia Cooperative Extension Publication.

“I live in the north, and the frigid winters kill off the parasites on our pastures.”
Parasites are tougher and craftier than you think. They easily overwinter in the root matter of your pasture.1010 - Hildreth M. Economics and control of cattle-worms in beef cattle: a northern perspective. Academy of Veterinary Consultants Meeting. December 2008. Parasites are in full bloom with the first green grass. In truth, hot, dry weather is more detrimental to parasites than the winter.1111 - Bagley C, Healey MC, Hansen D. Internal parasites in cattle. Beef Cattle Handbook.

“I use a rotational grazing strategy. That takes care of the problem.”
Pasture rotation by itself cannot be relied upon to provide parasite control.1212 - Myers G.H. Strategies to Control Internal Parasites in Cattle and Swine. J Anim Sci. 1988;66:1555. There are a large number of eggs and infective larvae in the environment. And they can hang on a long time. A 1991 study in Minnesota found infective larvae on pastures in April even though they hadn’t been grazed since July. In fact, rotation of pastures can actually increase levels of contamination, particularly when paired with high stocking rates.1313 - Areseneau J. Beef Health Management Course Lesson 4.
