There’ve been a lot of changes in the cattle industry over the last 40 years. Advanced genetics, improved nutritional programs and better animal health all add up to more production and efficiency per animal. Throughout it all, producers continue to trust Elanco's Rumensin® (monensin) to deliver consistent, dependable results.

Improved feed efficiency, improved average daily gain, increased milk production efficiency and effective prevention and control of coccidiosis — that’s the Rumensin tradition.


In feedyards, Rumensin improves feed efficiency by providing more energy from the ration.1 Research demonstrates that Rumensin improves feed efficiency by 4% and provides a net return of $23.13/hd.2

On pasture, Rumensin improves feed efficiency in beef cows, reducing their feed requirements 5% to 10% while maintaining body weight with no negative impacts on reproductive performance.3 Rumensin also improves average daily gain in replacement heifers, resulting in fewer days to first estrus — which can result in improved lifetime productivity.4

For only pennies per head per day, you can sell heavier stocker and backgrounder cattle. Rumensin is a proven management tool that optimizes your investment by improving cattle weight gain, even as the quality of forage changes from year to year.2

For the prevention and control of coccidiosis, Rumensin is the most potent feed ingredient available5 that kills coccidiosis parasites at three different stages in the life cycle instead of merely slowing their development.6 It's more efficacious at lower doses compared to other ionophores.


Cows have different needs at different stages of lactation. Early-lactation cows crave additional energy to support higher milk production. Their late-lactation counterparts need less feed to maintain production and pregnancies.

Regardless of the feedstuffs for lactating and dry cows, Rumensin helps cows get more energy from every pound of feed.

For the prevention and control of coccidiosis in dairy replacement heifers and calves, Rumensin is the most potent feed ingredient available1 that kills coccidiosis parasites at three different stages in the life cycle instead of merely slowing their development.2 It's more efficacious at lower doses compared to other ionophores.
