Brookside Agra is now offering Calf-Rescue oral nutritional supplement for dairy and beef calves. When given as directed, Calf-Rescue provides select vitamins and a stabilized source of direct-fed microbials (probiotics) to maintain a healthy, natural appetite, digestion and immune system during the critical neonatal periods and times of stress.
"The gut of a newborn calf is nearly sterile. It is vital for the health and well-being of the calf to develop a healthy gut microflora," said Tim Nelson, vice president, animal health and nutrition sales at Brookside Agra. "When given at birth, Calf-Rescue provides beneficial bacteria to promote a healthy digestive system, enabling it to grow to its full genetic potential, at a cost of only about $1.50 per calf."
Select vitamins: Calf-Rescue provides guaranteed levels of vitamin A, vitamin E, thiamine hydrochloride, pyridoxide hydrochloride and vitamin B12 — vitamins critical for normal calf growth and development.
Prebiotic inulin: Calf-Rescue also contains inulin, a complex carbohydrate that serves as a nutrient source to help successfully colonize beneficial bacteria in the gut.
Saccharomyces cerevisiae extract: Calf-Rescue provides a source of high-quality protein based from Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast and contains concentrated levels of essential and functional nutrients critical for young animals.
Calf-Rescue also contains a healthy dose of microorganisms including: Lactobacillus acidophilus, Enterococcus faecium and Bacillus subtilis to promote healthy ruminant function during times of stress.
"When calves are stressed, their appetites often decrease, while the nutritional demand on their bodies increases," Nelson said. "Calf-Rescue, with its unique blend of vitamins and natural microorganisms, works to promote healthy microbial counts in the rumen to increase feed intake and improve digestive function."
