Cow bolus

I'm not in sucklers long but I have used Mayo's Allguard bolus. They're easy enough to give and I've found their sheep products good previously. First year I used them on three heifers, all three held to first service and calved no problem. I'm big in beef now with 15 cows but pens have been out of action so no update for this year!


We use these.

I use the Agrimin Hi Iodine All-trace. Administer a few months before calving. Covers calving and going back in calf. Less retained cleansing - still get the odd one and almost every calf has a great suck reflex. No idea if its bolus related but im not changing what works.
