How do I know if my cattle require supplementation?
Advice should be sought from a qualified feed adviser to determine the correct balance of trace elements within your feed. Every farm is different and trace element status can be assessed through testing. The most common trace element tests are grass/forage analysis and blood tests. This will give you a solid starting point to balance your trace element nutrition correctly.
How do I know when I should supplement?
Supplementation should be done in conjunction with advice from either your animal health advisor, nutritionist or veterinary practitioner to ensure you get the correct balance for your herd and farm. Supplementation can be targeted to help your herd through the stressful periods in your production system or to get optimal production.
Is there a withdrawal period for Rich-Trace boluses?
There is no withdrawal period for Rich-Trace trace element boluses.
Why are trace elements so important?
Trace elements are essential dietary elements which are needed in minute quantities for proper growth, development and physiology. The correct balance of trace elements is required to improve the overall health and productivity of your cattle.
How do I know if I have a trace element imbalance?
The only way to know your exact requirements is to test for trace elements. Most farms will have a short fall in some of the naturally occurring trace elements in grass or forage. Another indication of a trace element imbalance is a loss of herd performance in terms of health, growth and fertility.
