All-Trace High Iodine Cattle helps farmers manage the trace element status of their herd over critical periods of the production cycle.
Low levels of iodine in pasture will generally result in low levels in cattle grazing or being fed forage from that pasture. The use of lime and manure spreading can greatly reduce the level of available iodine found in pasture.
Low iodine in the blood can result in poor growth rates and milk yield can also be less than expected.
All-Trace High Iodine Cattle boluses are designed to lie in the reticulum and dissolve from a constant surface area thus providing a continuous and regular supply of nutrients to the animal. They dissolve completely, leaving the reticulum free of any bolus residue.
All-Trace High Iodine Cattle boluses have an active life of 180 days.
- Optimise growth rates in youngstock
- Easier, cleaner calvings
- Strong, healthy calves
- Reduced calving spread
- Optimise conception rates
- Optimise general condition
- Both boluses applied in one single, simple application
- Full range of trace elements
- Active life of 180 days
- MEAT AND MILK WITHHOLDING PERIOD – NIL
All-Trace High Iodine Cattle has been tested in trials and the results have been published in peer reviewed scientific journals.
Trial work has shown the following:
High Iodine boluses give a consistent supply of iodine over an extended period
Plasma inorganic iodine levels in cattle are significantly increased over the trial period
Administer two boluses per animal. We advise a minimum weight of 200 kg in larger continental breeds.
Always use the recommended Agrimin cattle bolus applicator A. Both boluses can be inserted into the bolus applicator at the same time so that only one application is required. This saves time and makes administration much easier.
All-Trace High Iodine Cattle boluses are packed in units of 20 (enough for 10 cattle).
