Udder health in ruminants

Udder infections cost the dairy industry a lot of money every year in terms of reduced milk yields, lower milk income, increased treatment costs and higher rates of early culling. Our portfolio of feed additives helps address these challenges and increase farm incomes.
Udder of a dairy cow

Cows suffering from clinical mastitis have to be treated with antibiotics and their milk discarded. High somatic cell counts reduce yields and increase the risk of infection via cross-contamination. Mastitis is the cause of 25% of culls from dairy herds.

The cow’s immune system is the first line of defense against udder infections. We know how to build a stronger immune system.

ROVIMIX® E50 is a powerful tool for helping build a robust immune system that can reduce a cow’s vulnerability to infections. It has been shown to:

  • Reduce by up to 80% intramammary infection rates at calving, giving cows a better start to lactation
  • Cut by up to 50% the duration of mastitis cases in infected cows, making for a faster return to production
  • Lower the level of herd somatic cell counts
