Bimeda Ireland continues its support of the excellent xL Vets Skillsnet training programme; with a series of talks on the topic of nutrition, taking place this autumn/winter 2015. Friday 27th November saw the latest event take place at Kilcoyne Vet Clinic, Tobercurry, with nutritionist Mr Peter Bone talking to a wide audience of farmers who looked to gain a better understanding of the trace element deficiencies, toxicities and interactions which can affect the health, fertility and productivity of their animals.
The series of talks have proved extremely popular with farmers, who are looking to increase their knowledge base in the area of nutrition. Increasingly, it is being recognised that a scientific approach to trace element nutrition is required in order to address related health and fertility issues, and this series of talks looks to provide farmers with the knowledge to better understand the problems, as well as the prevention and treatment options available to them.
Peter Bone endorsed the Bimeda CoseIcure range of soluble glass boluses at the talk. The bolsuses deliver a controlled and constant supply of copper, cobalt, iodine and selenium to ruminants and last for up to 6 months. They have been proven to increase fertility, growth and productivity in independent trials.
