Rumicare Post Calving Mineral

Rumicare is a mineral supplement containing a unique combination of phased release rumen buffering minerals, beneficial when additional help is required for buffering the rumen of the lactating dairy cow or intensively fed beef animal. This is primarily in situations when feeding high levels of grain, or low pH silages, or low fibre diets such as grazing high ME low fibre grass during the grazing season. Added Rumen Yeast® inactivated yeast enhances rumen bacteria activity, aiding better digestion of starch and cellulose and increasing VFA production. This makes more energy available for muscular development in the finishing beef animal and mammary gland activity for improved milk production with the lactating cow. Cows in early lactation have a requirement for high levels of calcium to replace that which is lost through milk yield.



Rumicare includes added Rumigest® yeast which will enhance rumen bacteria populations and activity, aiding better digestion of starchand cellulose.  Welmin Rumicare supplies Calcium, Magnesium and Sodium, each of which are very beneficial to the animal, particularly the high yielding early lactating dairy cow while reducing indigestion, lameness and stress. Rumicare lowers the requirement for straw leaving more room for quality feed. With Rumicare you will get an improved feed efficiency with higher output per animal and smoother transition diets with less setbacks including less displaced abomasums. Phased release technology ensures constant and ongoing fight against SARA and clinical acidosis.



Rumicare Dairy:
Supplies Calcium, Magnesium, and Sodium each of which are greatly beneficial to the animal, particularly the high yielding early lactation dairy cow. In addition to phased release rumen buffering minerals, Rumen Yeast® inactivated yeast increases diet digestibility (especially NDF), improves milk yield, butter fat and protein.



Rumicare Elite:
Is a multi-yeast combination together with a buffer supplement. It supplies Magnesium, Calcium and Sodium. Along with the Rumen Yeast® inactivated yeast, Rumicare Elite contains the highly proven live yeast. The addition of a live yeast means that more yeast cells reach the rumen alive. This not only improves feed digestibility, energy supply and yield but also the overall health status and well-being of animals, even in challenging conditions.


All Rumicare products are suitable for total mixed rations on farm or direct application on forages.

Always check the ration diet to assure that adequate intakes of forage and forage particle size before using buffers.

Symptoms of Sub-Acute Rumen Acidosis (SARA)

The tell-tale signs of SARA are sometimes difficult to detect through visual observation.
Symptoms include:

  • Bubbles on dung.
  • Cows swishing their tails (due to passing acidic manure).
  • Animals performing 5-10% below capacity.
  • Increased lameness levels.
  • Reduced cud chewing.
  • Mildly depressed demeanour.
