SOP STAR COW

SOP® STAR COW is a complementary mineral feed for dairy cows and heifers to promote the Bio-hygienization of the environment and Bio-resilience within the animals, with consequent benefits regarding hygiene, barn management and animal productivity and wellbeing.

In addition to the benefits obtained with SOP GOLD PRO COW, this product also acts on the digestive system (to improve the assimilation and conversion of nutrients without having to modify the ration), on the neuroendocrine system (for the regulation of the estrous cycle), on the immune system (for a better response and resistance to possible disease).

The combination of these actions inside and outside the animal is aimed at reducing, not only the incidence of disease connected to environmental hygiene (environmental dermatitis and mastitis), but also the main post-partum diseases (acidosis, ketosis, metritis, DA).

The natural consequence is the improvement in dairy cow wellbeing, an aspect that is universally known as being responsible for the improvement of the quantity and quality of production…in the absence of any errors in farm management.

Its ingredients conform to the requirements of Grana Padana and Parmigiano Reggiano.  

For organic farming, use SOP STAR COW COMPACT.

SOP STAR COW - the benefits

  • More stable and balanced ruminal and intestinal microbiome: reduction in cases of acidosis, ketosis and DA
  • Improved digestion and use of nutrients
  • Improved assimilation of the feed ration
  • Better milk quality (% fat, protein, casein)
  • Better post calving recovery
  • More evident manifestation of estrus
  • Improvement in pregnancy rate (PR)
  • Lower risk of new cases of infection
  • Greater healing capacity
  • Greater recovery capacity, even in "tired" or elderly animals.

SOP STAR COW - instructions for use

DOSAGE: cows 8 g/head, a day; heifers and young heifers 4 g/head, a day.

USE: Add to the feed in the feed mixer or mix well with the feed ration, once a day.  

Not to be used simultaneously with oral macrolides.  

It is strongly recommended to use SOP STAR COW for dry cows, close-up dry and fresh cows, as these animals are more subject to problems of health and wellbeing due to their physiological state.  

CONTENTS OF THE BOX: The box contains one 10 kg bag.
