This condition occurs in freshening cows with low blood calcium but with
no obvious clinical signs of hypocalcemia (known as milk fever).
Subclinical hypocalcemia occurs immediately after calving in approximately 50%1 of second-lactation or greater cows, even if on a balanced transition diet. During this transition period, it can be difficult for a cow to maintain calcium balance — predisposing her to fresh-cow diseases.
Experienced by over half of all second and greater lactation cows, subclinical hypocalcemia has a substantial impact on your bottom line.
Not just any calcium bolus will do. Look for BOVIKALC, the market leader that is Ez to use and features the right forms of calcium for optimum delivery.
BOVIKALC uses two types of calcium: calcium chloride and calcium sulfate.
These calcium ingredients have been proven best in aiding cows back to optimum performing levels, while ingredients in other brands fall short.4 Don’t risk allowing subclinical hypocalcemia in your herd — trust BOVIKALC.
