Pack Sizes



We were having problems with retained placentas and non-cycling cows so we did a series of tests and found that we had a high iron content in our water which was interacting with other minerals. We looked at a number of products on the market but decided to use Nutritech water-soluble AquaTrace® range because we felt they had the highest specifications and are simple to use. Since using AquaTrace® we now have an empty rate of 4.3% and fewer animal health issues. This season we had the vet in for the first time to treat a lame cow. He commented that he couldn’t remember a time when he’s ever had to come out to give anything to our animals! I would rather spend a little bit of money trying to prevent problems than spend a lot of money curing them and that’s why I use Nutritech!
