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.

We own a goat dairy and use UltraCruz® Goat Copper Boluses for better herd health. Coats are super shiny. The boluses are easy to use and a convenient delivery method. Also, UltraCruz® boluses are cheaper and reasonably priced.
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!
I've been using UltraCruz® Goat Copper Bolus for 3 years now. We are a commercial goat dairy. I see better thrift overall.
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.

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.
