Glycal Forte® is a nutricine fed as a powder at 250g/cow day. Glycal Forte® has four modes of action to improve the health of transition cows through improved nutrition:
This Dynamic Metabolic Management System improves herd health, welfare and productivity. We work closely with your farm vet to monitor herd health and energy status (supported by using BHB blood tests).
Transition cow management affects disease incidence, yield and fertility in the following lactation. Farmer and vet identify farms with potential to make improvements in these areas.
Select cows 5-20 days after calving and blood sample for BHB to assess herd energy balance. Collect disease and performance data.
Farmer and vet review results, and use them to decide the course of action, including which groups of cows will benefit from the inclusion of Glycal Forte®.
Order product and start feeding Glycal Forte® in mixer wagon at recommended dose. Feed groups as agreed with farm advisors.
After fresh cows have been on Glycal Forte® for 3-4 weeks, repeat BHB blood samples and data capture to check progress. Re-order product as necessary.
