- Independently proven to be an effective way of supplementing copper, even in the presence of dietary antagonists, including molybdenum.
- Easy to use - no injections, no abscesses and no pain or stress to the animal
- Single application lasts approximately 6 months (i.e. up to 6 times longer than copper injections)
