The Y-TEX XP 820 Insecticide Ear Tag for cattle introduces a new class of chemistry with NO known resistance. The XP 820 is proven effective against BOTH Pyrethroid & Organophosphate resistant horn flies!
*Controls Horn Flies (Haematobia irritans), including pyrethroid-resistant and organophosphate-resistant strains.
With 1 tag per head up to 3 months
With 2 tags per head up to 5 months
*Controls or aids in control of more tick species than any other insecticide ear tag (2 tags per head):
Controls Gulf Coast Ticks up to 4 months
Controls Spinose Ear Ticks (duration is under study)
Aids in Control of American Dog Ticks for up to 3 months
Aids in Control of Lone Star Ticks for 2 months
Aids in Control of Cattle Fever Ticks for 2 to 3 months
*Reduces Face Flies (Musca autumnalis) when applying 2 tags per head.

Active ingredient - Abamectin (greater than or equal to 80% Avermectin B1aand less than or equal to 20% Avermectin B1b), an active ingredient never before used on cattle in the USA. This makes it ideal for rotation with any other insecticide ear tag.
*Contains a synergist, Piperonyl Butoxide, that increases the potency and the penetration of the Abamectin into the pest for maximum activity (a patent-pending formulation).
*Has NO objectionable odor.
*Provides increased weight gains in tagged growing animals and increased weaning weights of calves from tagged cows.
*Light enough to be applied to young calves.
*Approved for beef and non-lcatating dairy animals and now also approved for lactating dairy animals!
XP 820: Economic Advantages
Between 2003 and 2008 eleven herd studies were conducted on the new XP 820 insecticide ear tag to determine the difference in weight gain versus non-tagged animals.
The results were...
Average Weaning Weight - 52.4 lbs. higher!
Average Daily Gain - .37 lbs/day higher!
Based on these eleven studies conducted in Kentucky, Indiana, and New Mexico for an average of 16 weeks, and using an average of $1 per pound selling price, the XP 820 provided the following economic advantages.
To the livestock industry,
I have purchased many tags over the years and I have always had issues from ordering the quality of the tags until I met Sagebrush. It was the easiest order I have placed and Laura was great. The tags were delivered in a maneagable time and they were exactly what I had in mind. I will be ordering all my tags from Sagebrush. Thank you Sagebrush!
