Good News for Baby Bovines

AgriLabs introduces product to help bolster newborn calves ability to fight off common pathogens, including those that cause scours.

Producers with concerns about baby calves that might have missed getting a healthy feeding of colostrum during their first 24 hours of life have a new weapon in their fight for healthy calves.

AgriLabs, based in St. Joseph, Mo., has unveiled Achieve with Cryptex, its new all-natural formula for bolstering the ability of newborns to withstand disease stressors such as scours.

Achieve is a highly palatable, easy-to-use and extremely digestible paste that is scientifically formulated for newborns with:

• Targeted egg-yolk proteins, combating common pathogens that cause malnutrition and scours.

• Lactic acid-producing bacteria, glutamine and inulin, combining to crowd out harmful bacteria in the gut, support intestinal health and foster the growth of beneficial bacteria.

• Cryptex, a precisely formulated polysaccharide and thermally-activated carbon mixture, gives ACHIEVE its characteristic black color. It removes pathogenic toxins from the intestine and creates a hostile environment for pathogens such as Cryptosporidium, a major cause of protozoal diarrhea.

Achieve with Cryptex is available from AgriLabs distributors and local dealers (www.agrilabs.com).
