  • Grab the cow’s upper jaw with your left hand. Keep the cow’s head at a natural position and a little towards yourself. Gently guide the loaded Bovikalc applicator into the cow’s mouth.

  • When you feel resistance, gently guide the applicator over the tongue. When the applicator is behind the tongue, squeeze the handle to release the bolus.

  • Wait a moment for the cow to swallow and then remove the applicator.
