X-Zelit is a novel phosphate binder that makes optimal transition dairy cow management easy.

X-Zelit helps prevent both clinical and subclinical hypocalcaemia, safeguarding the health of your fresh dairy cows at calving.

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At calving, X-Zelit is withdrawn, and blood phosphorus levels recover quickly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:

  • Improved blood calcium levels
  • A lower risk of milk fever
  • Better opportunity for future milk production and calving

DCAD is difficult…

X-Zelit is highly effective as a phosphate binder without the hassle of a common DCAD diet.

  DCAD X-Zelit
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    

Provides benefits beyond prevention of milk fever in cattle

Better blood calcium balance at calving
Improved fertility/reproduction
Increased milk yield
Better quality of colostrum
Higher feed intake
Fewer metabolic diseases
Increased rumination
 Lower somatic cell count

Prevents calcium deficiency problems, including:

Milk fever
Calving difficulties
Retained placenta
Displaced abomasums
