ONLY APPLY ONCE THE HERD HAS CALVED!
Immediately post calving, a dairy cow’s calcium demand is especially high. That is because colostrum contains twice the amount of calcium as normal milk.
Supplementing with Healthy Cow Calcium + Magnesium 80/20 at the recommended rate during this period assists dairy cows return to health post calving.
This easy-to-use product saves farmers and dairy staff time and effort.
The dose makes the poison
“If a cow needs just a little magnesium, more will be better right?” WRONG!
Indiscriminate over supplementation of magnesium can be just as detrimental as simple deficiencies. When using the Healthy Cow products it is imperative to feed according to inclusion rates specified on the label.
