Switching Dewormers is a Big Decision, Make it an Informed One
New LongRange® (eprinomectin) calculator provides return on investment data
DULUTH, Ga. (June 4, 2020) — Cattle producers now have a tool to calculate the value of using an industry-leading parasiticide, LongRange® (eprinomectin). Boehringer Ingelheim launched the LONGRANGE Payoff Projector, a calculator that provides beef cattle producers and their veterinarians with a detailed estimate of what you can expect to gain by using the long-lasting injectable dewormer.
“We know that producers are concerned about the price of LONGRANGE, as compared to the lower-cost dewormers,” said Doug Ensley, DVM, technical marketing manager, Boehringer Ingelheim. “The Payoff Projector is a simple, mobile-friendly tool designed to help producers calculate the potential value of using LONGRANGE on their herd, before they purchase the product.”
Unlike conventional dewormers that offer 14 to 42 days of parasite protection, LONGRANGE delivers up to 150 days of parasite control in a single dose. Over the course of a grazing period, this means more efficient utilization of feed resources, and ultimately more weight gained each day.1
By providing the calculator some basic information about your operation, such as the cost of your current dewormer and the average weight of your cattle, the Payoff Projector estimates the cost of upgrading to LONGRANGE, along with your herd’s expected return on investment — conveniently calculated in both dollars and pounds.

“Of all the animal health practices used to improve production, controlling parasites provides producers the greatest economic return,”2 stated Dr. Ensley. “It’s important to consult a local veterinarian to develop a cost-effective parasite-control program for your herd.”
PLEASE NOTE: the purpose of this tool is to help you calculate opportunities based on inputs into the variable fields. Calculations do not imply a guaranteed weight gain.
