Feeding and Management Impact Performance of Fresh Cows

By December 17, 2021August 4th, 2022No Comments
Fresh cow support impacts health, milk production, and reproductive performance after calving.

Premium Post-Calving Combination

QuadriCal® + YEAST

QuadriCal® + YEAST contains four sources of calcium to ensure rapid, intermediate, and sustained calcium release. Different types of oral calcium are absorbed into the cow’s bloodstream over a period of minutes to hours.

  • Rounded bolus profile for safe, smooth and easy administration
  • Uncoated bolus for rapid calcium absorption
  • Vitamin D supports dietary calcium uptake and resorption from the bones
  • Niacin supports energy metabolism and liver function

RESEARCH TRIAL INDICATES THAT QUADRICAL® + YEAST
MAKES MORE MILK; RESULTS SHOW 8:1 ROI

In a DHMS/Cornell study, both heifers and second lactation and older (2+) cows were given one feeding of QuadriCal® after calving produced more milk per day than control animals (no calcium supplement) The study also found older heifers, lame cows, cows with high BCS, and 3+ lactation cows would benefit the most from targeted calcium supplementation.1  Date on file at Bio-Vet

4 More Milk®

Studies have shown increased milk production in select groups of cows within the herd, including first-lactation heifers1, after feeding QuadriCal®1 or QuadriCal® MINI.3

Support

Cows with subclinical hypocalcemia (SCH) exhibit no symptoms, but research has shown that SCH affects at least half of the herd.5 Left unchecked, SCH can result in negative effects, including compromised immune function, decreased feed intake and rumination, negative impact on future milk production and reproductive performance, and greater likelihood of ketosis, retained placenta (RP), mastitis and displaced abomasum (DA). QuadriCal® supplies 4 sources of calcium,niacin, and vitamin D.

Return

A return on investment of $44 per cow was calculated based on statistically significant data from a study of over 3,000 cows in New York. The return was due to both increased milk production in certain groups, and reduced incidence of DA, metritis (in low calcium cows) and RP in certain groups.1

RumenAider®

It's in there...and it's working!

At calving, feed QuadriCal® + YEAST in conjunction with RumenAider® cattle capsules. RumenAider® capsules provide nutritional and digestive support. Feed adult cattle 1 to 2 capsules per head per day for up to 3 days.

“I use the RumenAider®s with the [QuadriCal® MINI]. They fit in the same gun.
It’s easy to do. It helps cows, heifers—everything—stay on feed.”

Wisconsin Producer

"The cows get up and start milking a lot faster after we started the QuadriCal® and RumenAider®s. Milk fevers have gone down a lot. We hardly ever see a milk fever anymore. Because of the balling gun we get, it’s very easy to give the QuadriCal® and RumenAider®s. It takes less than 30 seconds. It usually takes longer to load the gun than it does to get it down the cow’s mouth and get it in.

Why does RumenAider® work?

  1. Encourages appetite during times when cattle consume less feed
  2. Provides nutrient dense vitamins and minerals
  3. Provides microbials to populate the rumen and intestinal tract and help maintain digestive efficiency
  4. Patented Capsule-In-A-Capsule™ packaging system separates and protects microbials from nutritional ingredients
