Feed product addresses challenging period of a cow's life

“With all areas of cost seemingly rising ever faster, cows are now required to perform at their optimum capacity more than ever,” says Chris Williams, managing director of Zintec Feed Supplements the Herefordshire Supplement manufacturer. “A key facet of a successful cow is her ability to conceive rapidly following a successful calving, whilst efficiently producing high levels of good quality milk”.

Zintec Feed Supplements has now launched a specialist product to address this challenging period of the cows life. PD PLUS is a concentrated blend of vitamins, trace elements, minerals and other nutritional components. It is specifically designed to ensure hormone production is maximised, whilst combating the usual drop in immune function by providing for the specific needs of the cow.
 “Using PD PLUS during the transition phase provides nutrients in their most available forms, ensuring conventional deficiencies are eliminated”
The product from Zintec is a granular product in a 5 kg plastic resealable container fed for a 4-day period 6 weeks post calving or two weeks before first service. The 25 gram dose can be included in TMR mixes or top-dressed onto forage. For flushing and embryo transfer work the product is recommended to be fed at least 4 weeks prior to treatment.
