  • BENEFITS

    ​Convenient ready-to-use liquid copper supplement

    Prevention and treatment of copper deficiency

    Do not administer to animals while dosing with zinc for facial eczema prevention

  • APPLICATION

    Water treatment; Administer to adult cattle through the water supply at a rate not exceeding 5ml/head/day (250mg elemental copper), adult sheep 0.1-0.3ml/head/day (5-15mg elemental copper) and adult deer 1-2ml/head/day (50-100mg elemental copper), unless advised by your animal health adviser.

    Oral drenching; For dairy cows that are drenched daily during milking, use the rates described as for water treatment above. For other stock classes, consult your animal health adviser for recommended dose rates. As an example pregnant ewes could recive a single oral dose of 2ml (100mg Cu).

    Addition to supplementary feed; Mix thoroughly into supplementary feed daily to supply the same rates as for water treatment above.

    Foliar application; Spray pasture to be grazed with 10 litres Stock Copper per hectare, up to 1-2 weeks pre-grazing, for up to 40 days supplementation. Stock Copper can also be sprayed at 10litres/ha onto pasture that is due to be cut, or has been cut, for hay, silage or baleage. A sticker such as Widespread® 1000 can be used at 25mL per 100 litres of water. Please note: required dose rates for copper depend on several factors including dietary molybdenum, iron and zinc levels.
