Making sure that cows quickly obtain the energy, electrolytes and calcium that they need to recover from calving will help support long-term cow health and performance.
TRANSLAC HydroBoost is a palatable, high-energy drink that is given to cows immediately after calving to quickly rehydrate a cow, replenish depleted mineral levels and help maintain blood calcium at normal levels. All of these factors give the cow the nutritional boost she needs immediately after calving.
Nutrient balance and calcium levels
HydroBoost contains electrolytes, calcium and energy, everything a cow needs to quickly restore its nutrient balance after calving and to increase its blood calcium levels.
Milk fever reduced
With the rapid increase in calcium demand it is essential that a cow's nutrient balance is restored which in turn reduces the risk of milk fever.
HydroBoost stops cows suffering from a negative energy balance situation by stimulating dry matter intakes post calving.
Good milk production and body condition
With increased feed intakes, a cow is more likely to maintain strong energy levels and avoid a drop in performance and body condition when starting lactation.
HydroBoost comes in powdered form in re-sealable 20kg buckets.
Once mixed with hot water, the powder will dissolve and the solution will turn orange. After adding 20 litres of lukewarm water it should then be given to the cow within 30 minutes after calving.
Each bucket provides a convenient and easy way to supply 20 cows the nutritional support they need post calving.
