Award Winning Dairy Herd sees the Benefits of Trace Element Supplementation with CoseIcure
Malcom and Andrew McLean operate Relough Holsteins – a top pedigree herd in Northern Ireland. They have 290 cows in their award-winning herd with a milk yield of 10,000. Annually, they sell their prize-winning bulls and heifers.
“We have continuously used CoseIcure Boluses for over 10 years. Our vet advised us to use CoseIcure boluses as other nutritional products supply trace elements unevenly, in peaks and toughs – which can be detrimental to health and fertility. The CoseIcure soluble glass boluses supply the same levels of ionic copper, cobalt, selenium and iodine every single day for up to 6 months. We bolus the cows twice a year - which is ideal for the pedigree herd as trace elements play a vital role in fertility and health.”
“Trace Element Supplementation is very important to our herd as it forms an integral part of our “Dry Cow Management” process. The correct nutrition of the dry cow cannot be understated for health and fertility reasons. We have experienced first-hand that using CoseIcure boluses to help to address trace element deficiencies enhances the health of the dry cow.”
“Our Holstein herd has enjoyed ongoing health and vitality for the past 10 years, and we believe that maintaining optimum trace element levels through the use of CoseIcure has been a significant factor.”
The CoseIcure range is enjoying rapid growth in the UK & Ireland; and is being increasingly specified by farmers, vets and merchants, who are looking for a high quality bolus that provides a solid return on investment. Trace element supplementation in any form should only ever be provided where a need to do so has been established and on the advice of a veterinarian, animal health advisor or nutritionist
