Dairy Cows Eating

Xpect more with X-Zelit

More effective. More consistent. More ease of use.

X-Zelit makes it simple to effectively prevent both clinical and subclinical hypocalcemia in dairy cows.

X-Zelit is a novel calcium binder that naturally stimulates the cow to mobilize her own calcium reserves for effective milk fever prevention. This mode of action is much easier to effectively incorporate into transition cow management compared to a DCAD approach, which relies on an acidified diet with lower palatability to achieve prevention with a lesser success.

X-Zelit stimulates optimal calcium balance around calving.

X-Zelit has been proven through numerous university trials, field tests, and producer experience reports to effectively and easily prevent bovine milk fever and reduce health issues in fresh dairy cows.

DCAD is difficult…

X-Zelit is highly effective as a calcium binder without the hassle of a common DCAD diet.

DCAD
X-Zelit
Requires special dietary changes
Requires low-potassium forage
Requires extra ration rebalancing
Requires urine pH testing
Is simply mixed into normal ration
Is started a minimum of 2 weeks prior to calving
Neutral taste, readily consumed in grain mix; reduces feed wastage
Unaffected by potassium; can continue dairy cows on late-cut clover grass or fresh pasture

X-Zelit in Action

See how X-Zelit works in the cow during transition.

We have a very high-performing herd. Since we’ve been using X-Zelit, we’re not worried about calving cows anymore. We know they will calve in with virtually no problems.”

Wade Bryanton

When we started using X-Zelit, it seemed like milk fever almost vanished! It was really a night and day difference. We’ve continued to use X-Zelit and we will continue to use it.”
