BOLUSES

The Allsure range

 

Boluses are designed to provide to grazing cattle that proportion of their dietary requirement of six trace elements and three vitamins not adequately supplied by grass, particularly iodine. The bolus lies in the reticulum at the forward base of the rumen and slowly dissolves from a constant surface area, thus providing a continuous supply of trace elements and vitamins to the animal for approximately 8 months. The boluses dissolve completely, leaving no residue in the rumen.

 

 

The CopaSure range 



is indicated for the prevention and treatment of copper deficiency. A proportion of the administered copper oxide lodges in the abomasum of the treated animal. This provides a sustained-release source of copper for absorption from the gut. This steady supplementation ensures adequate copper status but avoids the sharp rises in copper levels which can be associated with copper toxicity.
