All-Trace Dry Cow boluses

Description

A sustained release bolus containing 6 trace elements and 3 vitamins. Designed for grazing or forage fed dry dairy cows and dairy heifers. All-Trace for Dry Cows helps farmers manage the trace element status of their herd during the dry period.

During the dry period cows tend not to receive any form of supplementary feeding and, in some cases, the nutritional status of the animal is allowed to deteriorate to such an extent that the vital periods of calving, onset of lactation and conception can be compromised. Given this, it is important to maintain trace element levels as the dry period is a recovery phase and a period of rapid embryo development.

Technology

All-Trace boluses are designed to lie in the reticulum and dissolve from a constant surface area thus providing a continuous and regular supply of nutrients to the animal. All-Trace boluses for Dry Cows have an active life of 120 days.
