How Customers Have Successfully How Customers Have Successfully Used Our Udder Program Used Our Udder Program
Minimum 3 weeks feed .75 ounces per head, then if SCC still under 150,000: feed .50 oz. per head per day always feed in the morning only. Blend in TMR or hand-feed individually. Feed throughout lactation and the dry period for maximum effectiveness in naturally boosting immune systems and strengthening reproductive systems. Give all dry cows and bred heifers .25 oz. Immu-PRO per head daily for 60 days before calving and at 30 days before calving start .50 ounce. For best results keep these dry cows and heifers on the above program. Remember, you can start Immu-PRO at any time (on any stage of a cow’s or calf’s life), but ideally, you will want to give Immu-Pro to every animal .25 ounce everyday.

Customers generally give 2 Power Pak Plus Capsules. Also, they apply Uddersol until temperature returns to normal. Many dairymen also use the “Egg Drench Recipe” below.
Many customers rub 5-10cc Uddersol on hoof, put a piece of plastic wrap over the hoof sole, and bandage. Retreat 3-5 days later, if necessary. Uddersol can also be applied between hoof toes for corns, etc., and on swollen pasturns (above hoof) or on swollen hocks. Apply twice per day (a.m. & p.m.) until healed.
