Boluses can bring goodness to ewes
A NEW trace element and vitamin bolus launched by Agrimin promises to provide minerals to ewes through from tupping to lambing.
Small-trace is said to provide sheep with six essential trace elements and three vitamins for a six month period. The bolus can be given to ewes pre-tupping or to over-wintered hoggets.
Trial work conducted on the product shows that it gives an improvement in lambing percentage and boosts blood copper and selenium, according to Agrimin.
A leaflet giving advice on safe administration is included with the boluses which are available in boxes of 40 costing £59 (01652-688046, fax 01652-688049).
