The pros and cons of the slow release bo­lus

NZ Lifestyle Block - - Feature - Source:

For the life­style block owner, the eas­i­est way to make sure cat­tle and sheep are get­ting good zinc treat­ment is to get a vet to ad­min­is­ter a slow release bo­lus to stock ev­ery month.

How­ever, there are also zinc prepa­ra­tions which can be dis­solved in drink­ing wa­ter (you’ll usu­ally need to flavour the wa­ter to make sure an­i­mals drink enough of it), drenches, or sup­ple­ments which can be added to grain.
