It is often difficult to balance high productivity with high herd health status. Micro-nutrients can play an important role in ensuring herd health and immunity are strengthened. This balanced supply is often difficult to achieve with conventional feedstuffs/minerals.
Research has shown that organically chelated trace elements, where the mineral is bonded to an essential amino acid, can improve utilisation by the calf. Trace element imbalances in the diet can either be naturally ocurring or induced. The 'lock-up' of trace elements by heavy metals may lead to dietary imbalances.
An organically chelated trace element, vitamin and amino acid supplement, Cow Care TMR® can be used to balance dietry deficiencies and therefore help maintain herd health.
Cow Care TMR® is a convenient to use, dry powder version of the market leading brand Cow Care®. Cow Care TMR® has been developed for incorporation directly into feeder wagons over a period of 3 days, once every 3 months.
Cow Care TMR® is fed at a rate of 100g over 3 days (33g per day) for cows yielding up to 10,000 litres.
An additional 10g (at 3.3g per day) should be fed for every additional 1,000 litres of yield.
This ensures every cow receives individual care and the procedure should be repeated every 3 months.
As part of the Agri-Lloyd Herd Health Programme, high yielding and 'problematic' cows should receive additional 100ml of Cow Care TMR® to help balance the diet at key times of need.
