Copper® Range

Copasure® is a licensed, medicinal product containing copper oxide needles in a hard gelatine capsule. It is used for the prevention and treatment of primary and secondary copper deficiency in cattle. Inadequate copper levels may be due to insufficient copper in the diet (primary copper deficiency) or the adverse effects of molybdenum, iron or sulphur upon copper absorption (secondary copper deficiency).

Copasure Range

Copper oxide rods are released in the reticulo-rumen passing slowing through the ruminant stomachs for a period of 2 to 3 months. Exposure to abomasal acidity causes slow particle solution, enabling partial absorption to take place. The copper stored in the liver then acts as a depot from which copper is slowly released to maintain normal concentrations in the blood during periods when the animal may be receiving an inadequate copper intake. The recommended dosage should maintain adequate copper levels for the whole grazing season unless more frequent dosing is required on veterinary advice.
