Agrarian - Direct-Fed Microbials Gel or Bolus
Historically, producers have used milk replacers containing sub-therapeutic levels of antibiotics. Recently this practice is being scrutinized citing the potential for resistant strains of bacteria, the higher cost of milk replacers, as well as noting the antibiotic levels are ineffective in preventing disease as reasons to discontinue this practice. Recommendations have been for producers to replace the use of sub-therapeutic antibiotics with proven practices such as good colostrum management, bio-security protocols, feeding coccidiostats and direct-fed microbials.
- Key Ingredients: The same important ingredients as Convert Powder in an extremely concentrated form
- Focus: Newborns and individual calves faced with environmental challenges
- Feeding Rate: Five to 15 cc of gel or one bolus (can be used instead of Convert powder at birth and then use powder for 20 days)
CONVERT™ Calf Products are a special blend of naturally occurring direct-fed microorganisms (Enteroccous faecium, Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium), unique and proprietary L-form Lactobacillus, microbial sugars, enzymes and specialized proteins. These ingredients provide essential management tools for production and environmentally related challenges. These products do not contain antibiotics and are proven to be safe and effective.
