Hydration is the key component to herd health and performance. It keeps your whole herd milking, energized, and healthy. For over twenty years, Bovine BlueLite has been proven to be an effective way to ensure that your herd is well hydrated to maintain milk production, and to encourage dry matter and water intakes. An easy-to-administer electrolyte, Bovine BlueLite is very palatable, buffered, and provides added energy sources and vitamins necessary to help recover from dehydration.
Bovine BlueLite helps cows to rehydrate in times of stress, helping cows to rehydrate and maintain normal body fluid and electrolyte balance to help ensure top performance. When cattle suffer from dehydration, potassium is the first electrolyte that is excreted. As a high potassium electrolyte, Bovine BlueLite provides cattle with a source for quick replacement. To combat the loss of body fluids that many cows lose at freshening, add Bovine BlueLite to water, TMR, or top-dress on feed to help replenish and re-establish a positive energy balance. During heat stress events, reduce the negative impact on a cow's immune system and reproduction by using Bovine BlueLite prior to and throughout a heat event. When administering to the whole herd, mix Bovine BlueLite with the grain portion of the TMR, or for optimum distribution mix with water and then add to the TMR. Veterinarians, nutritionists and dairy producers agree that Bovine BlueLite can be used in many ways and is one of the most effective hydration products on the market.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Administer Bovine BlueLite in the drinking water for 5 -7 days or as long as animals show evidence of dehydration (body shrink) or until animals are consuming their normal amount of feed ration on a daily basis. Allow cattle or sheep to drink water with the Bovine BlueLite on a free choice base.
Top Dressing Cattle
1. Two heaping teaspoons: top dress daily, add to feed consumed by a 400-pound calf.
2. One cup: top dress daily, add to feed consumed by four 500-pound calves.
Top Dressing Sheep
1. One heaping teaspoon: top dress daily, add to feed consumed by a 60-pound lamb.
2. Half cup: top dress daily, add to feed consumed by ten 60-pound lambs.
1. Individual: 1 heaping tablespoon BlueLite to 1 gallon water.
2. Water tank: 1 level 8 oz. cup BlueLite to 32 gallons water.
3. Water tank: 1 lb. (2-1/4 c.) BlueLite to 64 gallons water.
3. Water tank: 6 lbs. BlueLite to 384 gallons water.
1 oz. solution to 1 gallon water.
Cattle on dry forages and grains normally consume water equivalent to 9-11% of their body weight daily depending on temperatures, stress, and water availability. Lactating cows should be offered additional water with Bovine BlueLite equivalent to their daily volume of milk production.
