    Default Mixing and Feeding Instructions in U.S. Measurements

    Here are the label directions that were included in a shipment.
    MEDIVET FUMAGILLIN-B
    Mixing and Feeding Instructions in U.S. Measurements

    WATER + SUGAR = SYRUP + FUMAGILLIN
    44 gallons + 727 lbs = 100 gallons gallons + 16 ounces (454 g bottle)
    9 1/3 gallons + 152 lbs =21 gallons + 3.4 ounces ( 96 g bottle)
    2 1/4 gallons + 037 lbs = 5.2 gallons + 0.85 ounces (24 g bottle)
    1/2 gallons + 08 lbs = 1 gallon + 0.18 ounces ( 5 g = 1 rounded teaspoon)
    I will add the feeding later.
