All Sure Cattle Bolus are organic supplementary intra-ruminal boluses that supplements the animal with four essential trace elements, copper, iodine, selenium and cobalt. Allsure Boluses use a slow release system that supplies supplemented animals with these elements for up to six months from a single application.
What are the advantages of using Allsure Boluses?
If an animal is insufficient in any of the trace elements present in Allsure Boluses it can lead to problems such as infertility and poor immune systems as well as other problems. All these problems caused by the lack of either copper, cobalt, iodine or selenium are listed below. A single application of Allsure Boluses will prevent deficiency of these elements.
Copper Deficiency: Low copper intake can lead to reduced fertility, reduced growth rate, reduced resistance to disease, reduced milk production, depressed bull libido, joint disorders, reduced semen quality, diarrhoea, bone deformities and spontaneous fractures.
Iodine Deficiency: While low iodine levels can be quite common, the effects that it can have vary greatly. The symptoms can include reduced fertility, poor weight gain, reduced milk yield and quality, late abortions, stillbirth, perinatal mortality, metabolic disorders, increased susceptibility to infectious diseases
Selenium Deficiency: Even though selenium is a common naturally occurring element it is frequently low in good quality pastures. Low intake of selenium can lead to white muscle disease, an increase in still births, depressed fertility and retained cleansing.
Cobalt Deficiency: Cobalt is essential for the natural production of vitamin B12 in the rumen. Low levels of cobalt will lead to depressed appetite and general poor health.

How do All Sure Cattle Bolus work?
The boluses use a slow release system that work in four stages:
Stage 1: The bolus enters the first stomach and releases the rods stored within.
Stage 2: The rods are stored in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd stomachs.
Stage 3:Acid in the 4th stomach dissolves the rods
Stage 4: The dissolved rods are passed through to the intestine where they are absorbed into the animals system
Administration of Allsure Boluses
Allsure boluses should be administered using an Allsure Bolus Gun. Caution should be taken when administering not to damage the throat of the cow. Allsure boluses should not be given to animals under 200kg.
