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 work has shown that organically chelated trace elements, where the mineral is bonded to an essential amino acid, can improve utilisation by the cow. Trace element Imbalances in the diet can either be naturally ocurring or induced. may lead to diet imbalances and resultant production disorders.
An organically chelated trace element, vitamin and amino acid supplement, Cow Care® can be used as part of a programme to help maintain general health and fertility in dairy cows and their calves.
Cow Care® can be used to balance deficiencies associated with forage based diets and can be administered at drying off, first service or it can be used to aid heat detection and conception rates in problem cows. 100 ml is the recommended administration rate at each key stage of the production cycle. Costing less than the average semen straw, Cow Care® can make a dramatic difference to the fertility and profitability of the herd.
Cow Care® was formulated specifically to complement mineral feeding to the dairy cow in the maximum stress periods of late pregnancy and early lactation.
Trialled by ADAS, Cow Care® can play a huge part in strategic herd health maintenance programme (see Trial Results)
