Cobalt is an essential mineral involved in the formation of vitamin B12. A lack of cobalt usually results in a lack of appetite. At last, we're able to provide the certified organic farmer with a highly effective cobalt product, designed for easy oral application via inline water medication, or manual drench gun.
Cattle: 0.5 – 1 ml/cow/day (based on a 500kg animal)
Sheep: 1.25 litres/1000 head/week
IntenSE Organic Cobalt can also be pasture-sprayed at 3 litre/ha. Apply to 1?3 – 1?2 of the required area. Application one week after grazing, gives the best results. Keep stock off the sprayed pasture for seven days to maximize plant uptake. Best Practices
• Monitor cobalt status in your animals closely as dry/hot summers and wet/cold winters can deplete natural soil reserves reducing the cobalt status in herbage. Additional cobalt supplementation may be required during this period.
• Regular blood/liver tests should be undertaken to monitor cobalt status.
