The unique mode of action of X-Zelit
X-Zelit is simply added to the cow’s diet two weeks prior to calving
It works as a phosphate binder in the feed, improving blood calcium levels at calving.
Low-phosphorus diets improve blood calcium at calving
By feeding low phosphorus levels to pre-fresh cows, we improve bone resorption and better mobilise calcium.
At calving, X-Zelit is withdrawn, and blood phosphorus levels recover quickly
This results in:
DCAD is difficult…
X-Zelit is highly effective as a phosphate binder without the hassle of a common DCAD diet.
|Requires special dietary changes|
|Requires low-potassium forage|
|Requires extra ration rebalancing|
|Requires urine pH testing|
|Is simply mixed into normal ration|
|Is started at least two weeks prior to calving|
|Neutral taste, readily consumed in grain mix; reduces feed wastage|
|Unaffected by potassium; can continue dairy cows on late-cut clover grass or fresh pasture|
