Copasure Bolus Copper Supplement
Copasure Bolus is a long-acting copper supplement that protects your herd's growth, fertility and resistance to disease. Copasure® rods lodge for months in the folds of the stomach lining. Liver copper stores build up and a single dose lasts at least 8 months. In practice, 1 dose per year is usual. Give by balling gun.
Note: To be used only when your cattle are copper deficient.

"Works for our ranch."
Read a study online about the effects of copper bolus on goat herds. We bolus at 3 - 4 month intervals. FAMACHA scores improve by at least one number. This cannot be beat for the long term control of Barber Pole Worm. We buy the ones for cows, cut them down and recap for goats.
"Great for cattle and goats!"
Great for cows and goats. Copper is essential for rumenant health. For goats it is to be dosed at 1 gram per 22lbs, or 1cc per 50lbs.
Works wonderful in controlling eggs in goats and sheep. Time released. Never had any bad results, only good. The animal thrives. We need to get back to the natural treatments instead of man made antedotes. Been using this for 5 years now. Actually will enhanse their colors.
I also use these for my goats. I use the marshmallow method, so no need to resize into the smaller gel caps. Just measure out what you need stick in between two halves of a marshmallow, and give it to the goat. Another method I've used is to mix the copper dose in with some oatmeal and molasses. Goats go nuts for them.
"Your goats will thank you!"
Like Emily, I'd give this one more star if it came in smaller doses for the smaller goats. That said, it is incredibly good for your goats! My Nubians thrive when they have enough copper, and Copasure provides what my herd needs.
"necessary for goats"
Cannot get enough copper for my goats in the Willamette Valley without this product. Need to re-size bolus for goats with gel-caps from the drugstore. Not for sheep!
With most of the United States copper deficient this is definitely worth buying. I didn't give it a top rating because since it is labeled for cattle the boluses are huge. I use it off label for goats and dwarf breeds at that. So I must also find and purchase new capsules to make them smaller. But the difference after bolusing a copper deficient animal is well worth the effort. Definitely worth having this in your livestock medicine cabinet.
