Hydro-Lac and Dairy Cattle

hydro-lacUsing Hydro-Lac can improve cow performance by helping reduce milk loss due to heat stress, promote more rapid production response post-calving, and encourage feed and water intake to overcome health challenges.

Field results have shown that cows fed Hydro-Lac maintain and drink more water and have positive responses in milk production.



Hydro-Lac and Beef Cattle

hydro-lacHydro-Lac is specially formulated to provide essential nutrients, electrolytes and sugars necessary to maintain body fluid balance during times of shipping, heat stress, marketing, reproduction and livestock shows.

Research has shown that feeding Hydro-Lac prior to shipping cattle to harvest preserves live weight and meat quality. It reduces the negative effects of dehydration and shipping stress common during transportation.

Combine the high impact ingredients found in Hydro-Lac and Optaflexx® with Hydro-Flexx® for optimum results in pre-harvest management!

What do producers have to say about Hydro-Lac:


“In warm weather, it’s a no brainer! It just makes good sense. Hydro-Lac is a tool that should be in everybody’s cattle feeding toolbox.” – Ron Nykamp

“I always weigh my cattle locally before shipping.  I have experienced shrink as low as 1% on a 160-mile haul to Dakota City, NE when using the Hydro-Lac program. I have used Hydro-Lac on all my cattle I ship for the last eight years.” – David Schumacher

“Since we started using Hydro-Lac over the summer, we have noticed that cows keep eating and maintain their milk production.  It is a great product that I will always use.” – Flower-Brook Registered Holsteins

“Intakes are improved after calving from what we were doing in our previous program. Fresh pen milk production is up and Hydro-Lac is the only thing that we are doing that is different.” – John Warren

“We shipped 50 bulls from MN to Texas about 1,100 miles (18 hours) and fed Hydro-Lac four days prior to shipping at a ½ lb. rate.  The bulls, averaging 2,173 lbs. dressed out at 56-58%.  In comparison, we shipped two bulls only 100 miles (2 hours) with no Hydro-Lac, and they dressed out at 52%. We were impressed!” – Luke Alsleben, Alsleben Farms

“During the hot summer months prior to finished beef steers being harvested I was impressed with how the animals seemed a lot more comfortable and they keep coming up to the bunk eating. Our rate of gain didn’t drop off like it has in the past.” – Ted Prom 

“We used Hydro-Lac on our outside lot cattle and they never skipped a beat on feed intake during hot days.” – Chad Sprenger
