Copper is an essential trace element and cofactor in many enzyme systems. The polysaccharide complex protects the copper from rumenal antagonists to copper such as molybdenum, iron and sulphur, enabling the copper to pass to the small intestine for predictable absorption.
For the prevention and treatment of copper deficiency, especially secondary copper deficiency due to high levels of dietary molybdenum, iron, and sulphur.

Dietary requirements for adult cattle vary between 54-114mgCu/cow/day depending on pregnancy/lactation needs. 1g of QT Copper/cow/day maintains an adequate copper status under most circumstances. Dosage may be raised to 2g or 3g/cow/day for a period where it is wished to raise liver copper levels, or in the face of high levels of antagonists.
Dosing should commence with knowledge of the herd's current copper status and natural copper intake, and be adjusted according to normal monitoring procedures. The daily dosage may be raised or lowered as necessary for maintaining liver copper reserves.
