Vilofoss presents the X-Zelit posters presented at the ADSA Meeting 2018

13-07-2018

New scientific results on preventing hypocalcemia in dairy cows using X-Zelit product were be presented at the ADSA Annual meeting Knoxville, Tennessee, USA.

The following four posters on X-Zelit and their main conclusions:

Poster Mineral

The effect of feeding zeolite A during the prepartum period on serum mineral concentrations in multiparous Holstein Cows.

 

  • X-Zelit supplemented cows had perfect calcium balance in the periparturient period.
  • X-Zelit supplemented cows reduced the frequency of hypocalcemia from 90 to 30 percent



Poster Performance

The effect of feeding zeolite A during the prepartum period on peripartum performance in multiparous Holstein Cows.

  • X-Zelit supplemented cows had 19 less empty days
  • X-Zelit supplemented cows were 3 times more likely to be pregnant at day 120.
  • X-Zelit supplemented cows had 0.8 kg energy corrected more per day



 

Poster Adsa

A field study on the prevention of subclinical hypocalcemia in dairy cows supplemented synthetic aluminums silicate or anionic salts in late pregnancy.

  • X-Zelit supplemented cows had plasma calcium values on 2.3 mmol/L vs 1.9-2.0 for the DCAD fed cows.
  • X-Zelit supplemented cows had 4 times less subclinical hypocalcemia ([Ca]<-2.125 mmol/L) compared to DCAD fed cows.




Cows On Grass

The effect of feeding synthetic zeolite A prepartum on indices of mineral and metabolic status, milk production and reproduction in grazing dairy cows.

  • X-Zelit supplemented cows had a lower rate of subclinical hypocalcemia (22.6 % vs 0 %)
  • X-Zelit supplemented cows were pregnant 13.8 days earlier than non-supplemented cows.






X-Zelit is an innovative product for preventing hypocalcemia in dairy cows. X-Zelit is a calcium binder, binding the calcium in the feed ration, mimicking the low calcium approach, which has shown high efficient strategy for optimizing the transition feeding.
