Bovikalc®

Bovikalc is for use in dairy cows at risk of developing milk fever, especially in high yielding, older dairy cows and those individuals at increased risk.

Bovikalc delivers a massive 43g of available calcium in each bolus:

  • Calcium chloride (fast release)
  • Calcium sulphate (slow release) 

Each bolus also has an acidifying effect, much like a DCAD diet has, which helps the cow to mobilise her own calcium reserves.

The bolus dissolves in the rumen within 20-30 minutes and helps to raise blood calcium levels over a prolonged period of time.

For reduction of the risk of milk fever:

  • 1st bolus at the first sign of parturition
  • 2nd bolus can be given immediately after calving
  • If necessary, give 1 or 2 additional boluses at 12 – 15 hour intervals

For supplementation following calcium injection:

  • 1st bolus 2 – 3 hours after calcium injection
  • 2nd bolus can be given 12 – 15 hours later

Provided that cows can raise their head and are starting to eat and drink.

Only administer Bovikalc using the approved applicator.
