ThermoCAD HSC Heat Stress Pack

ThermoCAD HSC is for use in lactating dairy cows and beef feedlot cattle during warm weather conditions associated with heat stress. ThermoCad HSC is a unique blend of minerals, vitamins, and feed additives designed to help maintain dry matter intake and replenish key nutrients vital to successful heat stress abatement.

About the Product

Why Use ThermoCAD HSC?
Heat stress in cattle is one of the biggest culprits of lost profits. Heat stress reduces feed intake, production, health and reproduction. Decreased performance is a result of the cattle’s inability to dissipate enough of its own body heat during periods of high environmental temperature and humidity. In addition, cattle are prone to losing valuable electrolytes, mineral and buffering agents during hot weather due to increased sweating and respiration. The combination of decreased feed intake and increased nutrient losses by cattle requires additional supplementation of key nutrients to compensate for these losses.

ThermoCAD HSC supplies a source of mineral and buffering agents to help restore electrolyte imbalances associated with heat stress.

In addition, ThermoCAD HSC provides ingredients that have been demonstrated to help cattle dissipate heat and lower body temperature during periods of heat stress.


Key Ingredients

Tasco®A natural feed ingredient harvested from kelp. Tasco® has shown to lower core body temperatures during heat stress, thereby improving performance.

B-Vitamins: Play an important role in cellular metabolism. In times of low energy balance they are necessary for meeting the animal’s nutritional needs. Niacin and thiamine have been shown to play a role as vasodilators which assist cattle in dissipating core body heat.

Betaine: An all-natural plant product that helps stabilize cellular activity during time of heat stress or dehydration. Betaine has also been shown to be an effective methyl donor sparing methionine and promoting butter fat synthesis.

Minerals: Contains sodium and buffering agents to replenish minerals lost through sweating.

Direct Fed Microbials: A probiotic bacteria is included to aid nutrient absorption, suppress athogenic bacteria and produce digestive enzymes. Primary site of action is the small intestine.

YeaSacc® Extra: Contains Palatability Factors (Nucleotides, Aromatic Esters, Alcohols) which lead to increased dry matter intake and Nutritional Metabolites (Amino Acids, Peptides, Sugars, Organic Acids) which lead to improved fiber digestion and rumen fermentation.
