Sheep mineral bolus with copper
Prevent mineral deficiency in sheep with a sheep mineral bolus with copper
Our trace mineral bolus Ovitop CU is a slow-release sheep supplement designed to prevent a mineral deficiency in sheep and improve their overall wellbeing. Insufficient trace minerals can result in reduced appetite and growth, less and steely wool, reproductive loss, anemia, lameness, etc.
Our sheep mineral bolus can be used for sheep over 25 kg.
This mineral bolus is a supplement with copper. Since certain sheep breeds are very sensitive to copper we also developed this product without copper: Ovitop.
This product can also be used for goats.
