Important Information

  • BENEFITS

    ​High quality, ultra fine product with high calcium content

    Multi-use calcium supplement, can be used for dusting, oral drenching or added to supplementary feed

    Aids in prevention of milk fever in dairy cows after calving

  • APPLICATION

    Milk fever prevention - start immediately after calving and continue for as little as 4 days (colostrum period only) or as long as several weeks to months. It can be pasture dusted, sprayed onto pasture, orally drenched or added to supplementary feeds. The dose rate is generally 100-300g/cow/day. For drenching, mix one part of Lime Flour with four parts of water, stir frequently and flush drench lines after use to minimise settling out.

    To balance low calcium diets - use when maize silage is being fed out. Lime Flour is generally added to the feed at a rate of 50-300g/cow/day. Alternatively add to the feed at a rate of 60–120g/kg of feed on a wet basis (or 20–40g/kg of feed dry matter).

  • COMPATIBILITY

    • DO NOT FEED TO PREGNANT COWS IN THE LAST 2 MONTHS OF PREGNANCY, except under veterinary advice.
    • Lime Flour should not be added to the silage at the time of laying the stack down unless it is only going to be fed to lactating cows.
    • Lime Flour is not soluble in water so cannot be administered through the drinking water. If it is to be mixed into suspension with magnesium oxide, the magnesium oxide should be suspended in water and left to stand for at least several hours before the Lime Flour is added.

  • PACKAGING

    • Pallet of 40 x 25kg bags.

  • STORAGE

    Store in a cool, dry covered facility, and ensure that the bag is closed properly after use. Lime Flour is dusty, so dust masks and eye protection are recommended when excessive dust is present.
