Sollus Lactisol Logo  - a feed additive for lactating cows.

Our milk companies love to promote our great dairy products as the best source of calcium. Do you ever to stop to wonder where this calcium comes from? Every gram of calcium in milk comes from the cow in one way or another. There can be up to 20g of calcium a day produced by our top cows. That is 60g of limeflour that is absorbed from the feed broken into ionized Ca, transported in blood to the mammary gland and then built into milk. All day, every day.

However, if you search for calcium and dairy cow nutrition in New Zealand most of the advice is to restrict calcium from cows, especially in the dry period which is when she is building reserves for the coming spring. Cows with deficiencies in calcium and phosphorus run the risk of bone fractures, mid lactation milk fever, downers after weather events, increased levels of infection and short peak milk periods.

If you have any doubt that calcium deficiency in New Zealand cows is an issue, talk to Massey University who are investigating the recent epidemics of bone breakages in the New Zealand dairy cows.

Feed Lactating cows Sollus Lactisol to help with vital calcium intake.

 
 Lactisol™ is all about calcium. In combination with Tranzsol™ in the transition period, Lactisol™ provide the right elements for mineral absorption. Optimum absorption of calcium and phosphorus is required for strong healthy cows, putting back what we take out. It does this in a number of ways….

  • It balances the diet to make sure cows are receiving the right amount of vitamins and minerals for their stage of production and time of year.
  • Provides the “next generation” source of Vitamin D, Rovimix Hy-D®, which ensures optimum uptake of Vitamin D and utilization within the animal.
  • Is a source of biotin which is essential for the synthesis of keratin in hooves and for energy uptake in the liver. Lactisol™ contains Rovimix® Biotin.
  • Is a source of zinc which is a component of a wide variety of enzymes and proteins supporting metabolism, growth, production, and reproduction. Zinc is required for production of protective keratins in the hoof and teat. Lactisol™ contains Multi stage release Zinc compounds for optimal uptake and utilization.
  • Is a source of antioxidants to improve health and support the cow’s immune system to fight infection.
  • Is a source of ruminally available magnesium for a better, safer response.

The combination of Lactisol™ and the right macro mineral balance in your cows diet will result in stronger cows. A deficiency of available calcium in cows in early lactation is the major pre disposing factor of diseases such as ketosis, dystocia, mastitis, milk fever, retained membranes, metritis and is also linked to poor production and low fertility.
You will spend less money on fixing sick cows and generate more income with healthy cows putting more milk in the vat.
