Health, fertility and performance 

Trace element and mineral deficiencies have huge effects on the health, fertility, performance and profitability of your livestock. These deficiencies are often sub clinical and happen gradually over time, having a major impact on the productivity of the animal. The most common side effects are poor growth rates, poor fertility, poor colostrum quality and weak lambs or calves. The animals diet often does not provide the required levels of trace elements and vitamins and so supplementation is necessary. Providing a consistent, reliable and adequate supply of trace elements will ensure your animals are in optimal health and therefore able to perform well. 

Farm and Pet have a Bolutech bolus range as well as our own branded liquid drenches, probiotic paste for calves and lambs,  prebiotic calf paste and lamb colostrum.

I'm a parag

Our Bolutech Bolus range is a practical, technical, and economical solution providing your dairy cows, succler cows, growing cattle and calves, or ewes with the essential nutritional elements that they need to improve health, fertility and performance. Through one single application the animals needs can be met whilst also providing a slow release over a period of time meaning thethe animal has a consistanet supply of minerals. This promotes overall health and well being. Each bolus is subject to disintegration tests in the laboratory as well as the experimental site. This involves replicating the rumen in the lab. This is achieved by taking rumen   fluid and placing a bolus within the fluid. The liquid is then aggitated to replicate the rumen function. These boluses are tailored to meet the specific needs of your animals, based on typical forage analysis results. k here to add your own text and edit me. It's easy.

Trace elements and vitamins

 

Cobalt

The trace element Cobalt is required in ruminants for the synthesis of the vitamin B12. Cobalt is found in the pastures and soil where the animals graze. UK pastures can often be lacking in cobalt, resulting in the animal not consuming the required levels for Vitamin B12 production. In order for the micro-organisms in the rumen to convert dietry cobalt into vitamin B12 the animal needs to have sufficient Cobalt in the pastures where they graze. UK pastures and soil are often lacking in cobalt resulting in deficiency in the animal. B12 is essential for energy metabolism ( breaking down feed into live weight gain??) and the production of red blood cells.

Selenium & Vitamin E

Selenium and Vitamin E are antioxidants and selenium is an essential trace element for grazing livestock. They work together to prevent oxidation of tissues and the breakdown of cell membranes which causes cell damage. Selenium also helps maintain a healthy immune system. This is crucial, particularly during times of high energy demand such as drying off, lactation and calving. This trace element and vitamin are essential for normal growth, fertility and preventing white muscle disease as well as maintaning a healthy udder and producing healthy offspring.

Copper

Copper is an essential trace element needed for growth, white blood cell function and melanin pigmentation. Different animals and breeds of animals absorb copper at different rates making some more susceptible to copper toxicity.
