Key Features of Growvite Calf mineral supplement

  • Growvite Calf is particularly effective during times of stress, i.e. weaning or times of sickness. 
  • Formulated to the needs of thriving calves
  • Manufactured to the highest standards 
  •  Unique molasses based formula maximises Mineral absorption into the calves' system. 
  •  Can be given in conjunction with worming treatment without adverse effects too eiher treatment.

What should I look for in a mineral supplement?

  • Colour is not an issue. Some companies use red minerals such as iron oxide to give their product colour, this however gives no value to the animal and is done purely as a sales and marketing tactic.
  • Supplements with high salt content (sodium chloride) should be avoided. In many cases the presence of high salt content is used to reduce production costs on lower quality products.
  • Another cost cutting trick used by some companies is to produce animal supplements with high calcium percentage.
  • Look carefully at the content of the supplement you are choosing. If you are not sure about something don't be afraid to ask. For example some companies put lots of unnecessary "bells and whistles" in their products. 
  • Beef cattle do not need any extra vitamin B, they are more than capable of producing all they need from the bacteria in their rumen. Dairy cattle can benefit from some vitamin B12 in their supplement.
  • Mineral sources should be from sulphates as opposed to oxides. Sulphates are more easily absorbed by the animal and maximise the efficiency of the supplement.

Drench correctly

Cattle Oral drenches
Oral drenching guns are designed to deliver the treatment towards the back of the mouth over the tongue, so the entire dose is swallowed at once to optimise efficacy.
• Make sure animals are properly restrained, with their head held up • Slide the nozzle of the dosing gun in the side of the mouth and over the tongue so that the entire dose is swallowed immediately
• Drenching equipment must be correctly calibrated and in good working order
• Calibrate the gun using the product just before treatment starts by delivering two or more doses into a graduated measuring cylinder.
Faulty equipment, or attempting to dose too quickly, may mean that the barrel of the gun does not fill properly or that the liquid is full of bubbles.

Dosing Weigh – do not guess Underestimating the weight of sheep is a common cause of underdosing.
Select and weigh the biggest sheep in the group to determine the correct dose.
If there is a wide range of weights, consider splitting the group, then weigh the heaviest in each section.
Do not forget to check that the weigh crate is accurate before starting!

Calibrate and maintain the drench gun
Always check the gun is delivering the right amount before you drench.
Remove the plunger from a 10 ml syringe, put a thumb over the end and squirt the dose into it, making sure there are no air bubbles left.
Adjust the gun until the dose delivered is correct.
Drenching guns should also be well maintained and replaced regularly.
Clean with warm soapy water after use and check springs and tubes to make sure there are no kinks that will form air bubbles.

Withholding food
Research has shown that the efficacy of the white (BZ) and clear (AV) drenches can be improved by withholding food for 12–24 hours before treatment.
It is not advised to deprive heavily pregnant ewes of food, so if you treat this class of stock with anthelmintics, you may wish to use yellow drenches (LV) because their efficacy is less dependent on rumen fill.

Storage
Wormers should be stored securely, away from direct sunlight at 4–25°C.
Check the use-by date and, once open, use within the time shown on the packaging.
Shake white (BZ) products well before use.
