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 5ml of FerAppease behind the poll and a second 5 ml application to the skin above the muzzle.

< 200 Lb.: Apply 2.5ml 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.

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 20 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.

We had some issues with the postal service but customer service was very helpful in solving the problem. Exceptional product and service. I recommend the product to anyone that weans or preconditions calves

Kyle Castor

I bought 227 head of high risk unweaned steers and bulls from various sale barns late September and into October. I used my same old vaccination and receiving protocol on 91 head and Ferapease and the same vaccination on 136 head when they unloaded. Bulls were castrated with a knife at this time as well. The cattle without Ferapease had a 21% second repull/retreat rate and a 7% third pull rate. The cattle with Ferapease had a 2% second repull/retreat rate and so far zero third treatments. There was a noticeable difference in the cattle that received the FerAppease, they were not bawling and went straight to hay to fill up while the untreated calves walked the fence and bawled. The cattle without treatment were turned out of the starter pens in 45 days, the cattle with the FerAppease treatment were turned out in 32 days. In the past the day after I receive cattle in my pens you can't hear yourself think for the bawling, after using this product its nothing but quite and cattle eating. FerAppease cuts down the stress like nothing we have ever used.

Excellent Product

We were very pleased with the product. The calves were calm, quiet, eating and adjusted well.

Shipping issue

We received the 1 L bottle last week, but it had leaked in the package, probably about 1/3 of the volume. (If there is remedy for this, please advise.) We are planning to use it within the next few weeks as we wean our calf crop and are excited to do so as we have heard good reviews! Thanks!
