If you have bought any of the products with these lot numbers (you can check the lot number on the sewing strip), stop feeding it to your animals immediately.

Higher urea presence in food can lead to many problems and even death in some cases. If your cattle start exhibiting any of the following symptoms, try looking for a vet specialized in farm animals that can help you:

  • Become anxious 
  • Overly salivate
  • Lose coordination
  • Vomit
  • Grind teeth
  • Breathe quickly
  • Their face muscles twitch
  • Urinate excessively
  • Cannot walk normally
  • Feel weak and in pain

Cows are creatures of habit, and they are intelligent animals not much different from dogs or cats. So, you should be able to notice if they start behaving differently in any way.
