Dairy Heat Stress
Support Milk Production
We like to call heat stress days Bovine BlueLite® days. In periods of heat stress, cows readily lose water and nutrients required for optimal body function and performance.
Bovine BlueLite® has proven that it may help:
During BlueLite days, the combination of heat and humidity can compromise a cow’s ability to dissipate excess body heat. Cooling systems and heat abatement programs are important. But even with routine summertime diet and cooling techniques in place, a cow can experience physiological changes for which she cannot cope. As a result, nutritional strategies which support yield, but also address these physiologic challenges are needed to help the cow maintain or re-establish health and performance.
How Bovine BlueLite Can Help Preserve Milk Production
Bovine BlueLite® is chock-full of electrolytes such as potassium, sodium, magnesium and calcium to name a few. Added energy sources come from dextrose, sucrose, fructose and more. Bovine BlueLite® also contains betaine, an osmolyte that helps to maintain cell volume and fluid balance thereby helping improve protein synthesis, cell division, and maintain gut integrity. And finally, Bovine BlueLite® is vitamin fortified with antioxidant vitamins necessary for combatting toxins.
Heat stress trial shows lower dairy cow body temperature with Bovine BlueLite®
During a recent Florida heat stress trial, cows fed Bovine BlueLite® produced more milk and therefore, had reduced production losses over untreated cows. While most dairymen utilize heat abatement equipment, nutritional solutions are often overlooked even though the cow experiencing heat stress has very specific nutritional needs. A nutrition solution like Bovine BlueLite® supports the proper hydration and balance of electrolytes and energy in stressed cows. Exactly the kind of nutrition the cow experiencing heat stress needs—delivered at just the right time.
