Liquid feed supplement with niacin, propylene glycol and vitamins for cows and heifers after calving
AGRIDrench Niacin for a perfect start of lactation after calving.
Approximately 3 to 4 weeks after calving the cow again reaches the maximum milk production, however, the maximum feed intake is achieved after 6 to 9 weeks. Precisely in these weeks of lactation it may cause problems in the metabolism; a situation called a negative energy balance. The cow is now trying to compensate for this nutritional gap by reducing the body's own reserves. Especially high yielding cows, which are in a negative energy balance, tend to develop ketosis (metabolic disorder).
What are the possible consequences of ketosis?
Reduced feed intake, weight loss, fatty liver, fertility problems, retained placenta, increased risk to a displaced abomasum, hoof diseases, degradation of performance, high treatment costs and in many cases loss of dairy.
How do I recognize a ketosis?
No appetite, rapid weight loss, low milk yield, aceton smell, inertia and
incoordination, nervous behaviour or by examinate blood, urine or milk.
Approximately 30% of all fresh lactating animals suffer from subclinical ketosis and about 3% suffer from clinical ketosis. Breeds with a high milk yield become ill more often
Helpful measures to prevent ketosis:
AGRIDrench Niacin is an energy drink that contains both niacin and propylene glycol as well as a vitamin B complex. Precisely this vitamin B complex ensures the stimulation of appetite and thus boosts its own metabolism.
Feeding 200 ml AGRIDrench Niacin at the following features:
If required, the application can be repeated. CAUTION: Please ensure that there is a swallowing reflex!
AGRIDrench Niacin is available in 5 liter containers.
With the drench method the drenchgun is inserted between the cheeks and the molar teeth into the so-called oral vestibule. This way the solution (AGRIDrench Calcium, AGRIDrench Niacin or CCDrench™) directly flows behind the tongue into the esophagus so the cow cannot taste it. This ensures a stress-free and easy administration of forage supplements to animals.
Advantages of the drench method:
SUGGESTION: before inserting the gun into the cow's mouth, warm up the copper tube in warm water in order to not scare or irritate the cow!
