Animate® is…Smart Nutrition for a Healthy TransitionTM
Hypocalcemia (low blood calcium) is the most prevalent metabolic disease of the transition dairy cow, affecting greater than 50 percent of all recently fresh dairy cows. Addressing this disease through proper nutrition and management may result in cows that are healthier, more productive and more profitable. Animate is a new generation anionic mineral supplement that helps to optimize calcium metabolism in the pre- and post-partum transition cow and may help reduce the incidence and negative impact hypocalcemia has on health, milk production and fertility.
Animate was designed as a nutritional supplement that will deliver the proper minerals needed by the cow to optimize calcium metabolism. When fed at recommended rates, (1.2 to 1.5 lbs. per day beginning at least 21 days prior to calving), Animate helps to optimize calcium metabolism through proper prepartum acidification which may result in healthier, more productive dairy cows. Designed based on science, formulated based on research, manufactured to the highest standards, and proven through years of research and field experience, Animate is the superior choice for proper negative DCAD balancing.
- Palatable … Because of its palatability, Animate is freely consumed, leading to higher pre-partum dry matter intakes, which leads to higher post-partum dry matter intakes and, ultimately, increased milk yield.
- Concentrated and Complete … Animate is one of the most concentrated, commercially manufactured anionic products on the market. Animate also provides supplemental levels of phosphorus, magnesium, chloride and sulfur, key nutrients needed for proper anionic diet formulation.
- Effective and Economical … University and field trials show that feeding Animate can positively benefit and enhance transition cow health and performance and your bottom line.
