Health benefits of ProPath® LQ Zn 180

March 8, 2021

This product has been developed and scientifically validated in USA to:

  • Lower BTSCC
  • Reduce the severity of clinical Mastitis
  • Reduce lameness
  • Improve keratin plug formation at dry-off
  • Reduce the incidence of post calving uterine infection, reducing days from calving to conception


Zinc is a very important micronutrient which supports the cow’s natural immune function.

Unlike the Zinc we use to prevent Facial Eczema, ProPath® LQ Zn 180 is highly bioavailable and is rapidly transported out of the gut and into cells where it is required to support immune function.

The product can be administered as a dry powder over feed or via the dosatron, as it is highly water-soluble.

At the recommended dose rate of 2 to 4 grams per cow per day, treatment cost is 2.7 to 5.4 cents per cow per day (excl. GST).

We have plenty in stock and encourage anyone wanting to boost their cows’ natural defenses against any issues listed above to talk to us.
