COLOSTRUM FOR CALVES
Colostrum is the most important factor in the health of the newborn calf. It is commonly assumed that the colostrum received from the mother would be sufficient in providing the necessary nutrients. However, recent veterinary tests have shown that a large percentage of calves have significantly low antibody levels at 3-5 days of age.
A calf’s overall health is at risk if it does not receive colostrum within the first twelve hours of life or if it receives poor quality colostrum from a heifer or young cow that has not built up on-farm immunity.
How can Procol® help?
Scientists, researchers and veterinarians alike are now recommending supplementation of the cow’s own colostrum whenever in doubt. Procol® is 100% pure natural bovine colostrum obtained from first milking.
This guarantees the new born calf a complete feed and the best possible start in life. However as with all products, practicality is fundamental in ensuring success and the ‘mixability’ of Procol® is what makes it stand apart from the competitors.
Time and time again farmers tell us the number one reason they use Procol® is because of “ease of mixing.”
So, not only is it a great product but it is one that is easy to administer.
Supplied in individual feeds. Mix with 1 litre of warm water in the bottle.
Keep out of the reach of children.
