24∙7 Smartrace Growing and Adult Cattle

Action

Smartrace Growing and Adult Cattle boluses are for the oral administration of selenium, iodine and cobalt.

Smartrace Cattle boluses lie in the reticulum.  The wrapper on the bolus dissolves and the bolus breaks into two parts.  These erode and dissolve thus providing a long-term supply of trace elements to the animal during critical stages of the production cycle.

Indication

Intraruminal bolus for the treatment of clinical and subclinical trace element deficiencies of selenium, iodine and cobalt that can occur during the critical stages of the production or breeding cycle in growing cattle, between 200-400 kg, and adult cattle over 400 kg.
