Featured Advice from Our Experts
Calving difficulty (dystocia) is a concern of every cattleman because it is a major cause of calf deaths and is second only to rebreeding failures in reducing calf crop percentages. Cows that have difficulty during calving have significantly lower fertility at rebreeding.

"The best bang for your buck!"
This is a very easy to mix solution, its extremely safe and one container can last for months and months, provided you keep the container in a gallon zip lock bag so it doesn't get wet. As far as mixing goes, you will want something such as a travel shampoo bottle or something of similar nature. Fill 1/4 up with hot water (as hot as your sink goes but not boiling) then squeeze in powder, recap and shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Top off to halfway with m or hot water and a bit more powder if you wish for thicker lube, if not just leave it as it is. The most important step is the last step. LEAVE IT BE AND LET IT SIT for a day. When it sits for a day all of the bubbles and clumps disappear. PS mix in smaller batches, as this has glucose in it and will eventually grow bacteria (disregard is used solely for rectal examinations).
We tend to go through a lot of this stuff and find that it works best to mix water into the powder, rather than mixing the powder into water.
"great value for money"
great value for money.. very handy and practical. you only mix what you need. you can control the viscosity. Been using this for years.
J-Lube Powder works great. I like it a lot better than the already made stuff because you can mix it with warm water, so that your hand is not freezing while you?ÇÖre out in the barn with the goats, and so it?ÇÖs not such a temperature shock when you go in to a goat.
"Not Worth It"
We bought this lube awhile back to use with our goats if internal checks were required. I found it to be a hassle and somewhat hard to mix up. Maybe we mixed it wrong, I'm not sure, but what we mixed up did not dissolve well, and it got somewhat clumpy. Part of it you could use for a lube, but the rest I just threw out. Save the trouble and just buy it pre mixed or buy generic KY. It works just as well.
