A UNIQUE 4-IN-1 INJECTION

When it comes to trace element deficiencies, the focus has shifted from improving growth rates and milk production, to the gains in fertility and immunity that can be achieved. There are high demand periods when trace element requirements rapidly increase, where even well-supplemented herds dip into deficiency. This often leads to disease and drops in production, growth or fertility.

MULTIMIN® is a unique concept of supplementation for cattle and deer, used by farmers throughout the country. Containing copper, selenium, zinc and manganese, it is designed to be administered to stock prior to periods of high demand, such as calving, weaning and mating.

ENHANCING CALF IMMUNITY

A 2018 New Zealand study1 demonstrated the health benefits of injecting calves with MULTIMIN® early in life. The effect was rapid (within three days of injection), with death and disease consistently halved at all ages that calves were injected.

ENHANCING COW HEALTH

Recent New Zealand research2 has shown that an injection of MULTIMIN® in dairy cows 14-28 days before calving resulted in a halving of clinical mastitis, and 25% reduction in subclinical mastitis.

IMPROVING COW FERTILITY

A New Zealand study3 has shown that injecting dairy cows four weeks before mating lowered empty rates by over 3%, halved pregnancy losses, and moved the average conception date forward by three days, with a ROI of 5:1.

Overseas research has also shown that injecting bulls 12 weeks prior to mating improves semen quality and quantity.
