The new generation of milk fever prophylaxis has arrived
Effective milk fever prophylaxis already takes place in the rumen. PerformaNat has specialized in developing solutions for optimal calcium absorption and thus significantly reducing the risk of subclinical and clinical milk fever.
Based on years of laboratory and animal studies, phytogenic agents have been identified that significantly improve calcium uptake. This unique and new technology has been integrated into our PerformaNat Calciumbolus and supports your cows in the particularly sensitive transit phase.
If you are looking for a natural solution for optimal cow performance, choose PerformaNat Calcium bolus.
So that your cows fly up instead of lie down!
Farm visit at Jürgenstorf
The Jürgenstorf farm has been keeping dairy cows since 1979. In GDR times, the farm was a gene reserve for British and Canadian Friesians. Today about 520 cattle live here, new stables and the conversion from herringbone milking parlour to milking robot are planned for the coming years.
The farm Jürgenstorf had considerable problems with milk fever in February 2019. Due to a high proportion of older cows and the poor basic fodder harvest of the previous year, herd manager Markus Pohl had to treat many down-lying cows and was looking for a solution to the problem.

PerformaNat Calcium Bolus with patented phytogenic active agents
The PerformaNat Calcium bolus contains an organic source of calcium, which constantly releases calcium in the rumen over a longer period of time. It also does not irritate the mucous membranes and is therefore both effective and gentle. For the supply of at least 40 grams of calcium, 2 boluses are entered simultaneously.
More than 50% of the calcium in ruminants is already absorbed in the rumen.
For this reason, the PerformaNat Calcium bolus contains patented phytogenic agents whose effectiveness has been confirmed by years of research. The active substances used specifically activate the transport proteins in the rumen and scientific studies show that calcium uptake via the rumen tissue can be increased by up to 50%.
Increase feed intake
During the calving period the cows eat very little and their rumen mobility is diminished, which is additionally intensified by a lack of calcium.
The phytogenic active ingredients in the PerformaNat Calcium bolus stimulate the appetite. This promotes not only rumen mobility, but also salivation. The buffering of the rumen pH value is improved and the absorption of nutrients is increased. This effect has also been confirmed in feeding studies.
Calcium is absorbed via special transport proteins. The rumen contributes significantly to the absorption of calcium, whereby the potential is not fully exploited. Through the PerformanNat Calcium Bolus, the calcium arrives in the rumen, where the patented phytogenic active ingredients in the bolus activate specific transport proteins, whereby calcium can be better absorbed into the bloodstream. These selected active ingredients are tailor-made for the cow.
This significantly reduces the risk of developing subclinical or clinical milk fever.
The new Calcium bolus combines the previous concept of the targeted application of calcium in combination with patented phytogenic active agents.
The PerformaNat Calcium Bolus:
190 grams organic calcium
+ selected phytogenic agents
To reduce the risk of milk fever and improve feed intake
Feeding recommendations for effective milk fever prophylaxis:
For all cows from the 2nd lactation and beyond
- 2 boli at the first signs of calving
- 2 boli to calving
- 2 boli 12-24 hours after calving
- 2 boli 36-48 hours after calving
With our input device 2 boli can be entered at the same time.
