Organic selenium has been recently approved by the FDA. Sel-Plex® research shows an improvement in immune status, reproductive health, calf health and immunity and SCC. These benefits are valuable to your farm.
Research has shown that nearly half of all mastitis infections occur during a cow's dry or newly freshened periods. Supplemental antioxidants can help make your herd stronger and healthier.
Selenium is often used as a supplement to maintain and help build a strong, healthy immune system. It accomplishes this by preventing cell oxidation (cell breakdown).
For the dairy cow, an increase in dietary antioxidant intake can result in both a reduction in incidence and severity of mastitis.

Feed Transition Complete Pellet at a rate of 4 to 6 lbs per dry cow per day.
For Calves and Heifers:
Feed large breed calves 4 quarts of high quality colostrum within 2 hours of birth and again 12 hours later. Adjust amounts for small breed calves. If colostrum quality or quantity is low, consider using a colostrum supplement or replacer.
Offer free choice water from day 2.
Offer free choice calf starter from day 3, starting with a small amount, and increasing as they begin to eat. Calves weaned at 8 weeks of age or less should be consuming 3-4 pounds of starter grain per head per day. Never let calves go without available starter.
Wean calves off milk over a 10-16 day period.
At 12 weeks, gradually switch to heifer grower pellet, offering increasing amounts of hay.
Milk Replacer Feeding:
See product tag for feeding guidelines for optimal biologic growth.
Weigh MR powder every feeding for accuracy and consistency.
Mix MR powder in 110-120° F. water. Feed to calves soon thereafter, at 105° F.
Mix MR powder thoroughly with half of the desired final liquid volume. Add water to reach final volume and temperature; mix or whisk solution thoroughly. Feed immediately.
For large mixing batches, agitate while dispensing to individual feeding containers to prevent settling.
Acidified Milk Replacer Feeding:
Check milk replacer solution pH prior to feeding to ensure 4.0-4.5 pH.
Keep at 70-90°F after mixing and feed free choice via nipple feeder.
Mix fresh every 24-28 hours.
Keep equipment, nipples and hoses clean daily.
