Bryn Davies explains the factors affecting milk components…
We previously fed a dry cow blend containing Mg supplements & provided access to DC buckets. We introduced X-Zelit in 2011/12. Milk fever incidents reduced by 54%, retained cleansings by 62% & vulval discharge/metritis by 58%.

DC X-Zel is easy to use, it’s palatable, the cows run up to eat it, so they like the taste of it. I would say that it’s expensive but the benefits of using it are so good.

Post DC X-Zel, the pressure of calving has been taken away, feeding is simple. Cows calve down quicker and the calf gets going quicker. I’ve had no cases of milk fever, no retained cleansings or twisted stomachs. It’s simple and hassle free.
Ken Jackson - Ripton House, Barnard Castle
The product works - since feeding it we no longer have heifers going lame! No lameness means we don't have to keep picking up heifers feet to treat them, saving us a lot of time and hassle.
Andrew & Scott Pounder - Stainton Hill
X-Zelit has removed the headache of calving and other issues to enable straight forward cow management for the whole team.
Robert Morris-Eyton - Beckside
The support we've had from Advanced Nutrition has been fantastic and we will continue to focus on growing high quality forages and using as much home grown forage as we can.
David Walker - High Woodifield Farm
I changed to DC X-Zel and its dramatically improved the herd. It’s very rare I have retained cleansings and 9th calvers calve like 2nd calvers! General cow health has improved, post calving energy is fantastic and it just takes the hassle away.
David Walker - Highwoodifield Farm, Crook, County Durham
My herd is making great progress. Not only has cow health improved but milk production has increased by 500 litres / cow.
Steven Holden - Milbrow Farm
We feed DC X-Zel for two weeks before calving and we've had excellent results. All of the cows have calved without assistance; there have been no problems with cleansings and no signs of milk fever.
James Francis - New Barns
Through the Calf Rearing Protocol results to date show an average 0.88kg DLG with better, earlier growth rates meeting plotted chart targets, pot bellies have been eliminated, calves livelier and their coats shinier.
Scott Pounder - Stainton Hill Farms
Safesil is certainly my recipe for success. My 200 Friesian Holsteins are looking healthier, eating better and yields are improved.
John Sprackman - Pound House Farm, Thornbury
We test our colostrum, and have found that after using DC X-Zel it’s much better quality. The cows are fitter, healthier, they don’t lose much condition after they calve, right through to lactation. They just calve down better.
