Why vitamins are so important to livestock

Angus Cattle

During times of stress and drought, it is important to maintain the health and wellbeing of your livestock. One area that often gets overlooked by producers is that animals can become deficient in vital nutrients and especially deficient in vitamins. At Specialist Sales, we get a lot of questions about what the right animal health products are to use on your livestock depending on their particular health needs, which is why we’ve written this article for you.

Vitamin ADE provides the essential vitamins A, D, and E, all of which really help to optimise animal health in various ways:

  • Vitamin A helps improves an animal’s weight gain considerably;
  • Vitamin D increases the animal’s appetite and metabolism;
  • Vitamin E boosts the animal’s immune system, keeping it in tip-top health.

Vitamin ADE can be used on cattle, sheep and pigs. For best results, the product should be used twice a year in seasons of good rainfall, or at least 3 times a year during drier times.

The features and benefits of the AD&E Vitamin injection is that it is oil-based with high viscosity, which essentially means it won’t result in any site reactions. As the product is injected directly into the muscle, the vitamins are absorbed extremely quickly and start working immediately. The solution is pure with the lowest endotoxin count on the market.

Vitamin ADE injections can significantly improve the health of cattle, sheep and pigs alike. Specialist Sales has a list of dose rates and application methods available for producers to access for these animals.

Specialist Sales stocks a range of vitamin and chelated mineral options for producers to use. For more information about the Vitamin ADE or any of our other animal health products, call our friendly customer service team on 1800 780 317 now – they’re always happy to help!
