To assist the natural immune system of a dairy cow to decrease milk supply for when you are wanting to dry cows off. Urtica urens is a homeopathic remedy that has an affinity with the mammary glands and is very useful in drying up the flow of milk in nursing cows.

Best used for at least 3 days prior to drying off.

Handmade in NZ.  All remedies have a shelf life of 5 years.

500ml bottle

All 500ml bottles come with a free 100ml spray bottle to dispense remedy into and for ease of use.

We use pharmaceutical grade plastic bottles, so they won't break and tamper proof lids so they won't come off in the bike carrier box or when out and about on the farm.

All Agripathics remedies come in liquid form, as we find this is the easiest way to administer. 

You can treat a dairy cow individually or at the herd level.

Individually

Homeopathic remedies are best administered on to a mucus membrane, for dairy cows this means either the nose or vulva.  When cows are in the dairy shed, the easiest way to administer is to spray on to the vulva.

I like to administer at least 3 times per milking - when the cow comes into the shed, when I put the cups on and again when I take the cups off.  I usually do 3-4 sprays as a single dose.  This allows her to have at least 5 minutes between doses and works really well at getting the amount needed into the cow to get an effective response.

Herd Level

This is best done by putting into their water trough, so putting 1-2 capfuls in their drinking water means each time they drink, they are getting dose.

How long will a bottle last:

Individual treatment: there are 1875 single doses in a 500ml bottle

Herd treatment: at 1 capful rate there are 72 doses per bottle

All instructions on how much to use and duration are on the bottle.

 

Caution: If this preparation fails to alleviate the condition being treated the user should seek veterinary advice.
