Frequently Asked Questions

What is FerAppease MBAS?

The active ingredient of FerAppease is a synthetic analogue of the Maternal Bovine Appeasing Substance (MBAS). MBAS is naturally secreted by the sebaceous gland located on the skin of the mammary gland with the unique function of inducing an appeasing effect on the nursing offspring.

FerAppease is topically applied, and the active ingredient (MBAS) is assimilated by the vomeronasal gland located in the nose of the animals. The MBAS stimulation of the vomeronasal gland desensitizes regions of the amygdala and the hypothalamus, dramatically decreasing threat perception and its downstream stress consequences.

How do you apply FerAppease?

FerAppease is for use only in healthy cattle by topical administration behind the poll and to the skin above the muzzle.

When can FerAppease be used?

FerAppease can and should be used every time animals are exposed to management and physiological stressors where suppression of threat perception is desirable. i.e. weaning, dehorning, castration, branding, transportation, commingling, vaccination, parturition, interruption of lactation (dry off), breeding, et al.

What is the dosage of FerAppease on Cattle?

> 200 lb: Apply 5 mL of FerAppease behind the poll and a second 5 mL application to the skin above the muzzle.

< 200 lb: Apply 2.5 mL of FerAppease behind the poll and a second 2.5 mL application to the skin above the muzzle.

How long before FerAppease takes effect?

Behavior modulation and stress mitigation starts to take place immediately after FerAppease is applied.

Is a prescription required for FerAppease?

No, FerAppease does not require a veterinarian's prescription or a Veterinary Feed Directive plan.

How much does FerAppease cost per dose?

> 200 lb - 10 mL dose: $3.00/ head
< 200 lb - 5mL dose: $1.50/ head

Are there any side effects of FerAppease?

There are no known side effects.

Is there a withdrawal period after using FerAppease?

No, there is no withdrawal period after using FerAppease.

Can FerAppease be applied when it’s raining?

FerAppease is an oil-based product. It is recommended to apply FerAppease on a dry animal. It is best to allow FerAppease at least 30 minutes to absorb into the skin of the animal before getting wet.

What is the duration of each application?

FerAppease is effective for a period of 14 days. Most economically relevant, stressful events have a duration of less than 14 days. Therefore, a single application will get the animals through the entire challenge period.

Is there a benefit to reapplying FerAppease after the 14-day period?

If an animal is being run through the chute after the 14-day period for any reason such as revaccinating, studies have shown there are benefits to reapplication at this time.

Does FerAppease expire?

FerAppease has a two-year shelf life.

How should FerAppease be stored?

Store at controlled room temperature at 10 - 30℃ (50-86℉). Do not refrigerate or freeze.

Where can FerAppease be purchased?

FerAppease is available for purchase in feed stores, veterinary clinics, through your MWI/AHI representatives or here on our website feraah.com

Wild cows

I have some wild cows that I am using as recipe for embryo transplants. I used FERA to keep them calm during the process. I am very impressed with how well it works and have now ordered more for future transplants. It works great.

Great Product, not so great packaging.

The FerAppease product worked as expected. We applied at weaning, calves were less stressed and never stopped eating.
However both the 100 ml bottle and the 300 ml bottle had significant amount of leaking around the top of the bottle when applying the product.

Change Your Bottom Line!

FerAppease turns 'High Risk" calves into "High Reward" calves. Bawling calves go to the bunk and stay hydrated. My customers have death losses below, and ADG above projections. Hang a liter of FerAppease on your squeeze chute. Buy the bawling, sale barn calves and put the dollars saved in your pocket.

Brahman Heifers + FerAppease

South Texas Brahman cattle.
We all know how weaning starts, bawling non stop for 4 days.
NOT THIS TIME
After meeting Rodrigo’s sons at the Beef Cattle Short Course held at Texas A&M, ( y’all need to meet these young men, they are fantastically impressive to this 62 y/o cowman ) we decided to try it.
Then after meeting the man behind the science, Rodrigo, at the RAB Ranch Bull sale in October , we were certain that we would give it a try.
Just finished our spring working, kept 21 gorgeous Brahman heifers to wean.
Pulled off mamas on Saturday, Sunday I put hay in the pens,,, NO BAWLING.
Heifers came up to eat while I was unwrapping the bales.
No snort, no bawl, no distance, just calm settled heifers.
That about sums it up for me, all the proof I need is already on feed this morning.
Try it folks, just try it.
I did and now I will be using FerAppease at every working.
Amazing difference in our cattle

Thank you FerAppease
