Skycis® (Narasin)

Skycis® is the only ionophore available to U.S. pork producers.

For increased rate of weight gain in growing-finishing swine when fed for at least 4 weeks at 13.6 to 27.2 grams per ton.

For increased rate of weight gain and improved feed efficiency in growing-finishing swine when fed for at least 4 weeks at 18.1 to 27.2 grams per ton.

Flexibility in Finishing

  • Efficiency.
  • Performance.
  • Profitability.

Maximize your Performance

  • Skycis is the only ionophore available in the U.S. and is indicated for increased weight gain and improved feed efficiency in growing-finishing swine when fed for at least four weeks at 18.1 to 27.2 grams per ton.
  • When maximum weight is needed quickly to meet space requirements, contract timing or other market influences, Skycis helps to maximize feed efficiency, increase weight gain and increase carcass weight and yield when fed according to the label.1

Skycis Product Label

Read the full label for important use and safety information.

The label contains complete use information, including cautions and warnings. Always read, follow and understand the label and use directions.


INDICATION:

  • For increased rate of weight gain in growing-finishing swine when fed for at least 4 weeks.
  • For increased rate of weight gain and improved feed efficiency in growing-finishing swine when fed for at least 4 weeks.


DIRECTIONS FOR USE:

  • For increased rate of weight gain in growing-finishing swine when fed for at least 4 weeks:
    • Feed 13.6 to 27.2 g/ton (15 ppm to 30 ppm) in a Type C Medicated feed.
  • For increased rate of weight gain and improved feed efficiency in growing-finishing swine when fed for at least 4 weeks:
    • Feed 18.1 to 27.2 g/ton (20 ppm to 30 ppm) in a Type C Medicated feed.
  • No increased benefit in rate of weight gain has been shown when narasin concentrations in the diet are greater than 15 ppm (13.6 g/ton).


IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

CAUTION:

  • Do not allow adult turkeys, horses or other equines access to narasin formulations. Ingestion of narasin by these species has been fatal. Not approved for use in breeding animals because safety and effectiveness have not been evaluated in these animals.
  • Swine being fed with Skycis (narasin) should not have access to feeds containing pleuromutilins (e.g. tiamulin) as adverse reactions may occur. If signs of toxicity occur, discontinue use.

WARNING: No withdrawal period is required when used according to the label.

  • Store at or below 25° C (77° F). Excursions permitted to 37° C (99° F)


Communicate Skycis inclusions in feed to the full production system prior to use. Proper training, formulations, mixing and concentration levels are important to successfully implement Skycis.
