Benefits for calves

  • Faster rumen development
  • Higher concentrate and roughage intake
  • Better growth rates
  • Better health status

Progut Rumen in calf starter feed boosts rumen development by increasing the amount of rumen microbes, which have positive effect on feed intake around calving. In the calf trial carried out in Netherland Progut Rumen in starter feed improved daily weight gain up to 30 percent (table 1).

Calves are highly susceptible to a variety of diseases due to the immaturity of their immune system. Therefore, the administration of an effective dietary immune enhancer is beneficial for early development of the immune system by strengthening the immune competence. Progut Rumen contains cell wall components as well as high amount of soluble, bioactive particles which possess various biological functions. Progut Rumen improves performance and overall health by preventing pathogenic bacteria from binding to intestinal epithelial cells and by enhancing immune system (table 2). Read more here.
