Hydration is the key component for health and profitability. For over twenty years, Bovine BlueLite has been the first choice for cattle in the feedyard to provide specific electrolytes, multiple energy sources, and essential vitamins and nutrients to provide cattle with a more proficient start. FOB charges apply. 

Bovine BlueLite helps cattle to rehydrate in times of stress, such as upon arrival to feedlots, during periods of heat stress, and prior to shipping.  When cattle suffer from dehydration, potassium is the first electrolyte that is excreted.  As a high potassium electrolyte, Bovine BlueLite provides cattle with a source for quick replacement.  To mass treat calves on arrival, add Bovine BlueLite to water, in the TMR, or top dress on feed.  For use during heat stress events, administer a few days before temperatures rise and continue to use during heat stress periods.  Producers have seen increased profitability by using Bovine BlueLite as a way to improve carcass quality, reduce shrink loss, and reduce the potential for dark cutters.
