Does anyone mix Aureomycin 80g into their feed pellet during production? I have used weaker 10g crumbles in my top dress. It seems like pneumonia issues surface in fawns when they start facing weaning stress. I think weaning stress weakens their immune systems. Today I ordered my normal 5 1/2 ton of feed for my doe pens and I had them mix 50lbs per ton of 80g to my pellet. Anybody who uses Aureomycin in your pellet or textured feed I would appreciate your input.

Thanks

We have mixed it in with our feed, but not across the board. We recently added some in two feeders where we thought we had some thin deer and wanted to be sure we didn't have a problem. We use it sparingly so they don't build up an immunity.

Thanks Wild Rivers

I don't plan to use it continually. This batch will last me about a month. Then I only put it in my top dress after heavy rains or when a pen is heavily stressed. I am very thankful to have had the healthiest fawns we ever have this year. I am just trying to be proactive and prevent an issue. I just got the Red Ridge vaccine and have vaccinated all my fawns once.

Bell, How do you vaccinate your fawns at this age? Mine are way to quick and kick the crap out of me when I grab em now. Do you do it when they are first born maybe or dart? I have about 100 so its tough, If I just had 20 it may be possible when I get them to go in their shelters. I have a hard time keeping helpers after a fawn kicks em in the shin or the mouth. *This year I didn't vaccinate with anything and am having better luck then ever before(of course we haven't had the cold rains for days at a time either)*but am getting several with selenium deficiency. Most I can get straightened out with Bose if I notice it early but some just go down and out within a couple hours. Does anyone use the sheep paste with selenium and vit. e? I was thinking maybe that would absord into their system a little better, not sure?? Last year I gave em all Bo Se at birth and still had as many or maybe more*get white muscle disease??? Just when I think I'm getting things figured out, it all changes on me .*


Thanks

I get a few bumps and scratches and there could be some very funny videos made when we are vaccinating fawns a month old. It took me about three days to do around forty of ours born to this point. I carry a small cooler with the vaccine inside and a couple syringes each time I enter the pen to do chores or just to check for new fawns. I have mowed narrow strips in one pen and all the rest I now mow weekly. They gravitate to these strips. I carry a check sheet in my pocket with an ink pin. I check these strips regularly for a fawn tag that hasn't been checked off the list as vaccinated. If I see one under three weeks I can usually sneak up and catch it from the strip of grass with my large pike dip net. From there it takes a combination of a little common sense and athleticism if doing them by your self especially. I set the cooler in the area of where the fawn is hiding. Once it is caught I try to get them out of the net quickly(large mesh net bags will tear their ear tags out avoid them). I carry them to right beside the cooler and squat on them with their heads and necks forward out the front. I then pull up a cuff of skin from the side of their neck and give them the vaccine SQ. I also check them over for any other issues. I look for clean butts, healed navels, and no chest rattle etc. I have a second syringe and antibiotics out side the cooler ready in case. The large pike nets with extending handles are very efficient for catching young fawns. If Dad is in the pen with me we work as a team to catch the wily ones. It does require some common since to recognize when you have a great opportunity to catch a particular fawn. You also can make hiding places for them that make catching them easier. Such as burying culvert pipes lengthwise on top of the ground a few inches in the soil. These make great shelters for them also.

I definitely should have put a lower importance on athleticism Lol. I don't want to recommend something where someone gets hurt. We have wrestled deer for years some haven't.

Sdbigbuck

I haven't given anything either up till now. I gave a few of the smaller ones homemade paste that's it. I haven't had any runts this year. I am very surprised.

I still would like to hear more input from those adding Aureomycin as a preventative in their feed.

I feed Aureomycin Crumbles year round in our feed mix have for 8 +yrs with no negatives. I add extra dose to feed.....Right before a pen starts to fawn, After a pen all finish fawning,Once a month as fawns grow and at weaning and anytime trough out the year as weather and stress warrant.


We also wean our fawns according to the Moon Sign.................I know sounds nuts but my mother did EVERYTHING by the signs and since we have never had problems with weaned fawns. Try it and i bet you will see the difference.

I got some solid advice tonight the 80g @ 50lbs per ton is too much. My feed mill doesn't make my order till about 48 hours after I call it in so I am going to replace the 80g with 10g until I get more knowledge. The 80g seems to make more economic sense being double the price of 10g but 8 times as strong. In the Kerr whitetail studies on deer it appears they fed Aureomycin continually in their feed but they don't say how potent the Aureomycin was they were using. Thanks much for the responses. Anymore will be helpful as well.

There is an amount recommended for preventative management and there is an amount recommended for treatment. It can be calculated with any strength of Aureomycin crumble. After discussing the pelleting process with my grain company I was assured the 100g Aureomycin could be evenly dispersed into my pellet at the preventative management level. I now understand why some probably don't want to discuss this publicly on the forum because of the controversy that surrounds antibiotics in feeds.

Thanks for all the input.
