Victus® Transition helps deliver better transitions

The transition period is an essential and vulnerable time for a dairy cow. Victus® Transition — a unique blend of beta-carotene and mixed tocopherols — provides much-needed provitamin A and antioxidants through this phase, helping support stronger heats1 and improved colostrum quality2 in dairy cows.

Supplement your feed with critical antioxidants through the transition period.

During the transition from the dry period through calving and into lactation, dairy cows encounter unique challenges to their antioxidant status:

  • Ration ingredients are often balanced for energy and protein, yet lack beta-carotene content2 — a critical antioxidant for a healthy immune system.
  • Biological demands to support colostrum production, calf health, ovulation and immunity can draw down critical antioxidants at a time when they are most needed.

Roughage alone lacks necessary beta-carotene content. Victus® Transition helps fill the beta-carotene gap in rations.

Deliver the beta-carotene your dairy cows need for improved production.

Profitability of the farm is heavily affected by herd reproductive performance and efficiency, overall lifetime production, number of calves born and milk yield per lactation. Serum beta-carotene levels that are above 3.0 μg/ml are considered nutritionally adequate to support colostrum synthesis, reproduction and lactation3, yet most herds fall below these levels.

Backed by decades of university and commercial dairy research, Victus® Transition is proven to improve the health and production of herds. Supplementing your feed with the recommended levels of beta-carotene delivers the Vitamin A and antioxidants that lead to:

  • Increased conception rates and 21-day pregnancy rates4
  • Fewer days open
  • May support cow and calf immune health
  • Stronger heat signs1

Discover how beta carotene improves cow fertility.

A cow needs to give birth to a calf to give milk. A ruminant diet created with special attention on beta-carotene reduces the chances of fertility problems and increases overall yield.
