- ZERO% DEATH LOSS

- OMRI Listed Product
This feedlot specializes in "natural beef" feeding 9000 head annually for a major distributor. The study started with 750 head of 5 & 6 weights, not pre-conditioned and traveled 600 to 2000 miles from California, Texas and Arkansas.
Historically, the cattle are fed grass hay on day one then processed with deworming and vaccines on day two. Revaccination occurs in 12 days. For the past nine years, standard processing protocols yielded from 1 to 1.5% deaths and 13% in pulls.
This study started on July 24, 2004 with all 750 incoming head receiving two (2) one ounce gel caps on day one of Ramaekers IMMUNE PRIMER. On day two, a pelletized starter ration with one ounce of IMMUNE PRIMER per 5-lbs ration was started daily for three days. All cattle consumed approximately 5#'s ration per day.
At the end of the study, death loss was zero and only 3 were treated one time for respiratory symptoms.
