The only pre-calver designed with the calf in mind as well as the cow.
Lifeline is Ireland’s number 1 choice of pre-calver as it the only product that boosts colostrum quality for the calf as well as meeting the cow’s mineral and vitamin needs around calving.
If minerals and vitamins are in short supply, the cow is at greater risk of post-calving health problems such as retained cleanings, milk fever, ketosis, poor dry matter intakes, poor quality colostrum, displaced abomasum, and fertility problems later on.
Avoid ill health and disease pre and post calving with the help of lifeline pre-calver.
