UltraCruz® Goat Copper Bolus

  • Slow-release Copper bolus for all goats
  • Promotes healthy development and optimal coat quality
  • Aids in a healthy immune system
  • Sizes available for both adults and kids

UltraCruz® Goat Copper Bolus is an excellent source of slow-release Copper, designed to provide all goats with this essential trace mineral in order to support healthy hair and proper growth, as well as aid in the prevention of Copper deficiency. These convenient, long-lasting boluses contain Copper Oxide particles for the prevention and treatment of Copper responsive conditions in goats. Under most conditions, these boluses provide between 8 and 12 months of sustained Copper supplementation. Copper deficiency is a common problem in goats, therefore these boluses are especially beneficial for goats living in Copper deficient areas.

Copper (Cu) is an essential trace mineral required for production of normal connective tissues, including tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bone. Copper is also involved in producing skin and coat pigments, in proper nerve signaling, and the absorption and utilization of Iron. Copper deficiency in goats can result in poor hair and coats, reduced growth and fertility, and impaired immune system function.

Copper deficiency can occur in all goats, regardless of breed or gender. The cause of Copper deficiency can be anything from a Copper deficient diet (such as alfalfa), to water with abnormally high levels of Sulfur (which reduces the availability of Copper in the body), or living in a Copper deficient region.

These high quality Copper boluses ensure that your herd is getting the right amount of Copper to keep your goats strong and healthy. When the bolus reaches the stomach, the gelatin capsule quickly dissolves to release the Copper particles, which then imbed in the rumen to slowly release Copper.

This product is intended for use in goats only. Do not administer to sheep. Goats up to 3 months of age and weighing up to 50 lbs should receive UltraCruz® Goat Copper Bolus for kids. Goats over 3 months of age and weighing over 50 lbs should receive UltraCruz® Goat Copper Bolus for adults. To provide cattle with a supplemental source of Copper, administer UltraCruz® Cattle Copper Bolus.

We offer a variety of balling guns suitable for administering UltraCruz® Goat Copper Bolus for adults, including:

We also offer a variety of balling guns suitable for administering UltraCruz® Goat Copper Bolus for kids, including:

I have a herd of 30 goats and without fail, UltraCruz® Goat Copper Boluses make my entire herd look and feel their best! Soft, shiny and sleek coats on bucks, does and kids alike. Highly recommend this brand. You cannot beat the price or the results!

Nikki


I've been using UltraCruz® Goat Copper Bolus for 3 years now. We are a commercial goat dairy. I see better thrift overall.

Kathryn


I give UltraCruz® Goat Copper Bolus to my goats once a year, and they last. I have boer goats and have beautiful deep copper color heads.

Jeanette at Smith Farms


I have purchased the UltraCruz® Goat Copper Boluses now several times and I have to say not only is it the most cost-effective way to keep my large goat herd copper compliant but the product is a better quality. The capsule casings dose easier than what I have purchased in the past and paid more of my hard earned funds.

If I have nigerian dwarf goats, do I go by pounds rather than adult/kid sizes?

Asked by: blus ranch
Hello! Yes, we recommend going off your goats' weights rather than their age for this situation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful coats If you own goats you will need this. Before using this great product our goats had rough looking coats but now the coats are beautiful and shiney. It's easy to give we bolus entire herd in minutes with either a banana or strawberry taking the end of spoon make small hole add the bolus in and give to goat, they never chew always swallow and beg for more. We did try the gun but it was hard to work with for 1 person on 180lb goats the fruit method 1 person can do in just minutes no hassle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best copper bolus for goats In the southwestern U.S., goats tend to have issues with coper levels being too low. Most of the people I know raising dairy goats in this area - and that's a lot of goat breeders - use a copper bolus. This brand is the best value we have come across. I will note however, that my goats tend to need higher and more frequent doses than listed on the container. I dose at 1 gram per 25 pounds, every 6 months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I highly recommend these. I highly recommend these. Even though we supply our goats with good quality minerals that have copper in them, we had a low birth rate over the past two years. We decided to use the copper bolus twice a year and finally had only mulitiple births again. 2x4, 1x2 and all the rest had 3. We will keep using it for sure, since our feed obviously has some kind of copper deficiency.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goat Copper Bolus I have been using the UltraCruz Goat Copper for a few years know. My Goats look better then ever. And I find I use less copper know . Thank You

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this stuff! I have been buying this for 3 years now. The price and convenience of dosage is unbeatable. I use these to supplement my dairy goats with copper twice a year. They come in 2 sizes which is great, but it is also easy to open the capsule and remove some copper to reduce the amount if you need less than the pre-measured dose; something I also really appreciate. I will never buy copper anywhere else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product ! I breed Boer goats and breed for quality and hardiness. I also have a passion for goats of color. I noticed some of my darker girls had coats that were bleached, faded and coarser in texture despite access to minerals and goat blocks. I purchased UltraCruz copper blouses for both my does , buck and kids last summer. The results were amazing! Color was vibrant, coats were soft and smooth. Even my white girls shine. I will make it a regular part of my goat keeping from now on, dosing every 6 months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick delivery, excellent product I received my order just a couple days after placing it, I was very pleased with how fast they were able to ship it out. As far as the product itself- I administered it to my goats about 3 weeks ago and I can already see improvements in their health (as they had been having some copper deficiency issues). I would also like to mention that I received a call from someone at the Santa Cruz company, a few days after I received my order, that wanted to make sure everything arrived and that my order was correct. Excellent customer service and a great selection of products!
