LAND O LAKES® Calf Insure® is an effective way for producers to increase the numbers of beneficial bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract to help maintain gut health as well as improve digestion. Calf Insure® contains high levels of antioxidant vitamins to support immune function and its non-medicated formula requires no withdrawal period.
Maintaining gut health is important to the health of all animals, especially young calves which are not born with a rumen or completely developed digestive system. The gut wall serves as a barrier between the animal and its environment, keeping helpful bacteria in and harmful ones out of the intestinal tract. This barrier is critical for development of young calves and wards off gastro-intestinal diseases such as scours.
Calves with a healthy gut and digestive system grow more rapidly and are more feed efficient. A calf’s gastrointestinal tract affects both its ability to absorb nutrients as well as fight disease. The more nutrients young calves are provided, the better equipped they are to recover from scours or other disease challenges.
All bacteria in Calf Insure® have been tested and do not produce harmful D-lactate. D-lactate production and excretion has been linked to acidosis and increased scours in calves. Calf Insure® also is formulated with Bio-Mos® to promote good bacteria and build natural defenses to maximize animal performance.
