Nettex Cobalt micro bolus for young lambs - 250 Bolus
Nettex Cobalt micro bolus for young lambs - Sheep producers now have access to an innovative new micro bolus supplement that can be administered to lambs from as young as five weeks of age. COB-I-SEL 25New COB-I-SEL 25 from Nettex is a slow release 25-day cobalt supplement that also delivers iodine, selenium and multivitamins including copper. Do not use in breeds of sheep known to be particularly susceptible to copper toxicity. The micro bolus formulation has been developed specifically to help flockmasters maintain optimum cobalt levels in rapidly growing lambs and produce quality carcases at finish. The product's formulation also makes it ideal for targeted use during the ewe's production cycle, such as at pre-tupping or around lambing. According to the company, one of the main advantages of the COB-I-SEL 25 micro bolus is that it can be administered to very young lambs (5 weeks of age), whereas other available mineral boluses cannot currently be administered to lambs until they reach 8-10 weeks. The dosage cost is only around 24p per lamb and 48p per ewe. Micro bolus administration should be repeated as necessary at 6-8 week intervals for both lambs and ewes.
