good as publicised, we can now recommend our LED hunting
spotlight to help in the battle — saving our trees and pastures

the point of the spot.
With an adjustable beam and
optical lens, you can now have
the advantage. Once you’ve been
out hunting with one of these
lights, you’ll never go back to a
dirty yellow halogen again.

tery and longer hunting time can
be achieved by purchasing an
additional recharge battery for just $20 each.
This LED Hunting Spotlight is designed to be robust, light and
compact, and to be fitted either barrel or scope mounted to your

says Simon. “We back our product 100 per cent by covering a
full 12-month warranty, and endeavour to deliver the best person-

of digital lameness costs around $515 NZD. Lameness is a multifactorial disease, in which a number of factors interact with each other and
are known to contribute to the onset of clinical symptoms. It is the keratin and lipid synthesis aided by ROVIMIẌ Biotin that is important for
Good Nutritional management together with improved physical enviroment and cow management can help reduce the incidence of many
common types of lameness. Recent studies show that ROVIMIẌ Biotin can help reduce the incidence of dairy cow lameness, which
contributes to better profitability and animal welfare.

and metabolic pathways. Ultimately, ROVIMIẌ Biotin increases the amount of glucose synthesized in the liver. Glucose is the most important
source of energy for milk production.
