Bio-Vet introduces the T-Spec 125, an oral speculum designed for applying QuadriCal calcium boluses.
QuadriCal, an oral bolus containing high levels of calcium for dairy cows, was introduced at the 2013 World Dairy Expo. Bio-Vet began production of QuadriCal in late 2013 following completion of its new manufacturing and office facility in Barneveld, Wis.
The T-Spec has a 1.25 in. diameter, which is ideal for applying QuadriCal boluses. The T-Spec joins the MINI balling gun as application tools for QuadriCal boluses. The T-Spec, MINI and well-accepted '6' Shooter balling guns all are manufactured by Bio-Vet using durable PVC pipe material for long life and ease of use.
Each three-bolus application of QuadriCal contains a minimum of 54 g of calcium derived from four calcium sources: chloride, sulfate, propionate and lactate. These calcium types provide rapid, intermediate and sustained availability to the cow after calving, when her need for supplemental calcium is greatest.
QuadriCal boluses also contain niacin to aid liver function and vitamin D3, which is critical for calcium utilization in the body. QuadriCal boluses are tapered and rounded on one end for smooth, safe and easy administration.
