Malijo Consulting Clients begin to break the rules of Transition Cow Management.

Ethi-CAL - The newest and most exciting method of controlling metabolic disorders within your Transition Cow Management Strategy. Gone are the days of using "nasty" anionic salt combinations to induce osteoporosis in your cattle as means to control calcium balance. Ethi-Cal is a brilliant source of minerals that allows us to maximise DMI, protein, carbohydrate and vitamin/mineral balance of your transition cows without the need to control DCAD.

Malijo Consulting clients have begun to use Ethi-Cal as a means of controlling the metabolic disorders that often come with the onset of lactation in our transition cows. Historically we had to rely on the likes of "Nasty" anionic salts (Hydrochloric acid eats away at concrete, yet we have been happy to add it to our calving cow diets....seems crazy) to control calcium balance within our herds. But with the inclusion of Ethi-Cal we can now formulate diets to satisfy the huge increases in demand by the cows for energy and protein with very little risk of milk fever.

With the addition of Ethi-Cal we are now able to confidently formulate diets that meet the following:

  • DMI of 12-13kg/cow/day.
  • ME concentrations of 10.5-11 MJ ME/kg DM.
  • 38-40% NDF concentration/kg DM.
  • Crude Protein concentration of 16% CP.
  • DCAD of 350-450 meq/kg DM - Long been suggested that <80 meq is required for successful control of Milk Fever......not anymore! 

Malijo Clients have recently calved over 500 cows with only 7 cases of Milk Fever in animals that have received the Ethi-Cal for longer than 3 days pre calving.. Of these, 6 cases coincided with a new calving paddock consisting of high concentrations of white clover, a recipe for milk fever.
