I began to use the polyphenol products in October 2016 to improve my production. At this moment, I had important problems of fertility in my herd, the cows had pain in theirs paws, the leukocytes were very high and the production was not enough high as we expected.
My sale representative has presented the polyphenols as a natural anti-inflammatory that could improve the health of the herd, the fertility and the health of the udders. He also said that these products could help to decrease the feed cost because of it replace the antitoxin inside. It is simple to use: we put 50 g of Bovi-Herd per cow per day in our TMR. In the first weeks, the cows have stopped to trample and the big hocks has disappeared. Also, the leukocytes have decreased at a point that I have received the prime of quality without any elimination of cow. After 3 months, there was an important improvement in fertility. The heats became more visible and demonstrative. Even the old cows of 11 years old climb the other cows as the heifers.
However, I will change from buyer to seller without increase the number of heifer.
Based on the feed, the ration is more effective. This situation brings two things: The protein concentrate decreases to reach a forage standard at more than 80%. So Bovi-Herd provides to optimize the maximum of forage. Furthermore, until today, I have noted that the warm weather of summer did not have impact anymore on milk production.
Finally, I have found a product that provide real and quantifiable results. The cows are healthy and full of energy
