It is often difficult to balance high milk yields with high herd health status. Micro-nutrients and trace elements can play an important role in ensuring optimum herd health. This balanced supply is often difficult to achieve with conventional feed/minerals.
Research 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 occurring or induced, which may lead to diet imbalances and resultant production disorders.
The Agri-Lloyd range of chelated trace minerals provides a highly available source of these important nutrients, enhancing absorbtion and effectiveness. Their use in feed and mineral supplements has been consistently shown to be a benefit in trials.
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.
Cow Care® can be used to balance deficiencies linked with poor dairy cow fertility 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® is formulated specifically to maximise dairy cow fertility 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 programmes (see Trial Results)
