Milk fever

Milk fever develops mainly as a result of an imbalance of the hormones involved in calcium release from the bone and the calcium needs of the fresh cow. In South Africa on pasture, it often happens that this is in conjunction with a magnesium shortage.

 

Reducing the pH of the blood prior to calving induces the activation of the hormone complex involved in Calcium metabolism, at 4MIX we assess every farm and custom develop a product for your conditions.

Ketosis

The development of ketosis is mainly as a result of the rapid metabolism of fat reserves in the fresh cow to the extent that the animal develops systemic ketosis.

 

The aim is to calve down in a body condition score of 3-3.5. Feeding a highly available source of energy and antioxidants helps the cow during this transition.

Mycotoxins

Mycotoxin risk is always present and even green pastures can contain high levels of mycotoxins. When high risk ingredients like cotton and silage are fed, it is advisable to feed a mycotoxin binder. The aim is to stimulate and support liver function while binding the mycotoxins.
