Timing and stocking rate

Avoid grazing for 7–10 days after spraying to allow the herbicide response to occur. The label withholding period of grazing is seven days. Always refer to the label before applying any herbicides to pastures where livestock will be grazing, as withholding requirements may vary.

Grazing should start at stocking rates high enough to remove the target weed within two weeks. The label recommendation of four to five times the long‑term stocking rate is suggested to achieve this desired grazing pressure, however smaller paddocks may not require this intensity.

The effectiveness of the treatment is lessened as the grazing period is extended or the start of grazing is delayed.
