Bovikalc is a calcium supplement for dairy cattle to be given in the period around parturition to help maintain the serum calcium levels in order to manage a hypocalcemic state. The Bovikalc bolus dissolves quickly in the rumen. The calcium chloride is available immediately while the calcium sulphate provides sustained release of calcium.
COMPOSITION: Calcium chloride, Calcium sulphate.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE: Water Dosage and directions for use: Boluses are given to the cow using a special Bovikalc bolus applicator. Give one bolus of Bovikalc prior to or immediately after calving and a second bolus twelve hours later.
- Place the bolus in the bolus applicator with the rounded end pointing forward.
- If right-handed: Place yourself on the cow’s right side. Grab the cow’s upper jaw with your left hand and raise its head. Keep the cow’s head high and a little towards yourself.
- Gently guide the Bovikalc applicator loaded with one Bovikalc bolus into the cow’s mouth. When you feel resistance gently guide the applicator over the tongue.
