Vital Boost: Should be offered to a freshly calved cow within 1 hour after calving for maximum effect to provide vital nutrients and minerals to combat common postpartum disorders, and boost cows in early lactation or suckling. Vital Boost contains complementary ratios of essential macronutrients to enhance milk fever prevention and it offers high energy for immediate cow recovery after calving.
Provita developed Hoofsure Konquest hoof gel in conjunction with Queens University Belfast and Roger Blowey. Konquest hoof gel is a concentrated blend of organic acids and essential oils. It is formulated to possess bio-adhesive and potent penetrating action so it sticks to the skin and hoof and effectively gets to the source of infection. Provita have ongoing studies with Konquest hoof gel versus commercially available antibiotic aerosol sprays. Early results have been very promising. Cure rates are an impressive 75% after 28 day revisits for selected active DD lesions. For this study, Konquest was applied under gauze and lightly wrapped before removal in the parlour not more than 24 hours later. These early results are certainly encouraging and confirmed anecdotal results seen in the field from commercial users.

The physical barrier from the spray helps to seal the wound and reduce bleeding if accidentally hit by calves when returned to pens or pasture. Read more
