WHEN THE HEAT IS ON
Heat stress is estimated to cost the U.S. dairy industry over $897 million annually; about $100 per cow. Cut the cost of heat stress this summer and Comfort™ your cows with a proven natural solution.
Comfort is an everyday natural feed additive containing a custom blend of essential oils and capsicum for targeted support and animal comfort during times of challenge.
Helps minimize performance losses and costs associated with heat stress.
Stimulates water intake to help animals better cope with high relative heat indexes.
Helps maintain a healthier gut with essential oils, resulting in more consistent feed intake and nutrient absorption.
As temperatures and humidity levels reach above 68°F, dairy cows experience physiological stress trying to deal with their heat load. Milk production may decrease as much as 50% as cows back off feed.
A study conducted from May to June in Florida where weather conditions consisted of intense heat and humidity, showed that cows fed Comfort maintained and slightly increased average daily feed intake while control cows significantly backed off.
Another study done using an infrared thermometer to measure surface temperature showed that Comfort kept dairy cattle several degrees cooler.
