Subclinical milk fever prevention with a pidolate bolus
Our pidolate bolus Pidolatop is a fast-acting cattle supplement designed to prevent a calcium deficiency (hypocalcemia) around calving. This deficiency will cause a lower feed intake and milk production and could potentially lead to (subclinical) milk fever. Already from the first calving more than 20% of the cows suffer from subclinical milk fever.
Our pidolate bolus can be used for cows over 250 kg
Pidolatop is a bolus designed to optimise calcium mobilisation from the bones and prevent subclinical milk fever. Calcium pidolate and magnesium pidolate limit the fall in blood calcium levels around calving and allow an accelerated return to normal blood calcium levels.
Calcium from calcium pidolate and magnesium from magnesium pidolate are much more readily liberated and ionized than in any other nonprotein calcium salt. This makes the calcium and magnesium more available to the cattle.
