New trace element bolus for calves

Bimeda Ireland has launched CoseIcure Calf – a new multiple trace element bolus to their broad range of nutritional products.

According to the company, the CoseIcure Calf soluble glass bolus delivers ionic copper, ionic cobalt, selenium and iodine for up to six months.

Bimeda’s unique soluble glass technology ensures that trace elements are delivered at a controlled and constant rate for up to six months.

The unique ionic copper formulation supplies rumen-available copper, which is particularly suitable for use in high-molybdenum areas, where high ingested molybdenum, sulphur and iron may result in a secondary copper deficiency.

Bimeda Ireland general manager, Andrew Glynn, said: “We are very pleased to add another product to the Bimeda soluble glass trace element bolus range.”

“Our CoseIcure Cattle bolus is a much-loved bolus in Ireland. Feedback from farmers, veterinarians, and nutritionists was that they would like to see a version of this product which was specifically designed for use in calves.”

“We are excited to be able to respond to market demand with this exciting new product.”

Calves over three months and at least 100kgs 

CoseIcure Calf may be administered to ruminating calves over three months of age and weighing at least 100kg, following on from appropriate diagnostics. CoseIcure Calf is a complementary dietetic feedstuff.

Bimeda also manufactures soluble glass multiple trace element boluses for cattle, sheep and lambs.

Most recently, the copper-free ZincoIsel Sheep bolus, which contains zinc, cobalt, selenium and iodine, was added to the range and proved popular with farmers who required a copper-free trace element bolus for sheep.

Trace element supplementation should only ever be supplied after appropriate diagnostics have been carried out and on the advice of a veterinarian or nutritionist.
