A tried and true product for Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. (BIVI) has been Bovikalc, an oral calcium supplement that provides fast and extended support of blood calcium levels in freshening dairy cows. The World Dairy Expo served as a great platform for BIVI to again showcase the vital calcium supplement.
Brand Marketing Manager, Dr. Raffael Lichdi, said, “One of the things which has happened in the last five years is that there has been a lot of awareness being raised around sub-clinical hypocalcemia. One of the things Bovikalc does is provide a solution to your fresh cow management. It’s a product you give at calving and again 24 hours later to help elevate those negative effects hypocalcemia has on the cow.”
Dr. Lichdi said one of the things farmers he has talked with enjoy about this product is it’s ease of administration. And if we take that one step further, farmers like that they can tangibly see a difference in a cows calcium levels within just 30 minutes of first dose. Bovikalc is also backed by key opinion leaders who have conducted research proving it does what it says it will do.
