The bolus is an increasingly attractive option for farmers hoping to increase the health and profitability of their animals. A bolus is a practical, cost effective way to mineralise a herd. A single application can provide for an animals requirements for a long period of time, and because each animal receives a bolus a farmer can rest assure that each animal receives the right amount of trace elements while saving time and eliminating waste.

Trusted by 30,000 farmers in France every year and available in 68 countries, Neolait has been a force in agriculture for 70 years. Neolait’s commitment to scientifically developed agricultural products has seen them produce creative, efficient and environmentally friendly solutions to improve the health and wellbeing of animals and the viability of farming.

Dietevit Tonic

Despite being essential during the first few hours of a calf’s life, a calf is born with just enough vitamin A and E to survive. By supplementing the nutritional intake of dry cows with Dietevit Tonic the calf will receive a high quality colostrum rich in vitamins and minerals.

Dietevit Tonic contains:

Selenium – Selenium increases a calf’s levels of immunoglobulins which helps strengthen the effect of a vaccination programme, as well as helping with old cell detoxification.

Vitamin E – Vitamin E helps stimulate immunity and protection of cells.

Vitamin A – Multiplication of mammary tissue (regeneration) can be stimulated with vitamin A.

Zinc – Zinc is for multiplication and mammary tissue resistance and well as playing a role in general immunity.

Dairy cows receive 2 boluses at drying off or 5-8 weeks before calving.

Suckling cows and heifers receive 2 boluses 5-8 weeks before calving.

Dietevit Tonic provides secure constant release of trace elements for 5-8 weeks

Ovixcell

Perfect for grazing and forage fed small ruminants, breeding, and milking ewes and goats, Bolutech Ovixcell from Neolait is trace element bolus designed to reduce the risk of nutritional imbalances in grazing and forage fed animals.

Ovixcell is scientifically designed to make up for shortfalls in the trace element and vitamin content of feed for sheep and goats. By optimising the nutritional content available to an animal, Ovixcell has been shown to have benefits for sheep and goats at a range of developmental states.

Ovixcell contains:

Zinc – Zinc helps to improve fecundity and fertility.

Cobalt – A cobalt deficiency can cause lethargy, a reduced appetite, as well as poor wool, size and condition.

Iodine – A lack of iodine has been linked to goitre in lambs, perinatal mortality, low birth weights and poor fecundity.

Selenium/vitamin E – Selenium and vitamin E have been show to help prevent white muscle disease and infant mortality.

Vitamin A – Vitamin A helps with steroidogenesis and embryo survival.

Ovixcell is for sheep and goats weighing more than 45 kg. 1 bolus at grazing will supply a secure controlled release of trace elements for 120 days.

Flash

Hypocalcaemia is believed to effect between 7 and 8% of milking cattle and costs farmers money. The cost of treating an animal with Hypocalcaemia and is related illnesses is significant, but when the reduced fertility and risk of culling is taken into account the cost really begins to add up

Bolutech Flash from Neolait is a simple, secure, inexpensive solution for protecting cattle from hypocalcaemia. By providing a an additional 66g of calcium derived from two different sources, Flash gives cattle a boost that helps to protect against the effects of a low calcium diet.

Hypocalcimia can cause a range of medical problems in cows, from low tonicity and feed intake to increased risk of mastitis, metritis and ketosis, in some cases cattle can develop milk fever, and low calcium can in even result in death.

A bolus applications has many advantages over other ways of increasing calcium intake:

There is no risk of bad swallowing

No waste compared to oral drenching

Inexpensive when compared with a specialist feed ration.

A bolus is a good alternative or even compliment to calcium injections.

When combined with Bolutech Activ and reflex, Flash create a perfect nutritional supplement regime for dairy cows.

Ovifresh

Ovifresh is a trace mineral bolus from Neolait designed to increase outcomes during lambing. Formulated with organic trace elements and minerals ideal for helping to increase outcomes during reproduction. A single application of Ovifresh makes for a simple cost effective solution to nutritional short falls in an animals diet.

The carefully balanced nutritional profile of Ovifresh helps to improve antioxidant activity, helps the cyclicity and expression of oestrus, and is adapted to oestrus synchronisation programmes.

A Ovifresh bolus administered 20 days before breeding will slowly and evenly release the trace elements needed to improve ewes fecundity, help the development of the ovulatory follicle and support the regeneration of skin and skin appendages.

Ovifresh contains:

– Zinc: prostaglandines synthesis, epithelium integrity, fertility

– Iodine: fecundity(thyroxyne T3) cycle regularity

– Copper: embryonic mortality

-Vitamine A: Steriodogenesis (progesterone) cycle regularity, embryo survival

– Beta-caroten: progesterone

– Vitamin E/Se : nidatation embryonic mortality,

Antioxidant system

– Superoxyde dismutase (SOD): Copper, zinc, manganese

– Glutathione peroxydase (GSH-pxe): selenium

1 Ovifresh bolus should be administered to ewes and goats over 45kg 17-20 days before insemination
