Trust Transfer Factor Technology
Medicine is the Science of Disease. Nutrition is the Science of Health.
Trust Transfer Factor Technology to optimize immune system function in your cattle. While many products use single rudimentary ingredients known to aid immune Health, Ramaekers Nutrition delivers the only immune support products harnessing Transfer Factors supported by a unique, field-tested, and patented blend of essential nutrients and potent nutraceuticals.
Transfer Factor Technology
Our Transfer Factor technology is derived from a proprietary blend of bioactive peptides. These bioactive peptides are extracted from bovine colostrum and egg yolks. This blend combines unique plant-derived heteropolysaccharides, lactic acid-producing probiotics, and highly bioavailable micronutrients. The Synergy of this combination of ingredients enables the “immune intelligence” (the body’s ability to recognize and remove harmful cells) in our formulas to assist your cattle in naturally producing an effective, rapid, and appropriate immune response.
Like colostrum (or first milk), which transfers vital immune knowledge from mother to newborn, our Newborn Immune Primer and Adult Immune Primer formulas (learn more about our sustained release formulas) educate and activate the function of the mother and calf’s immune cells within hours and without side effects using our patented Transfer Factor technology.
While Medicine is the Science of Disease, we feel that Nutrition is the Science of Health. The bottom line — regardless of your animal health protocol, enhanced immune function made possible by Ramaekers Nutrition’s orally-delivered formulas enhances your current herd health protocols. Our formulas will help your nutritional program and bolster profit potential in the following ways:
- Significantly fewer treatments and death loss
- Better response to existing nutrition programs and health protocols
- Maximized state of wellness for better gain and reproductive outcomes (see reproduction and fertility)
- Improved genetic expression by addressing sub-clinical disease issues
Advancements in technology often change the methods we use to solve problems.
Cows and Cattle. From time to time, there is an advancement in technology that changes how we think about a problem. In the cattle business, this technology is immunotherapy. Natural Immunotherapy is just such a technology. Natural Immunotherapy is the science that educates the cattle's own immune system to fight viral and bacterial infections.
For more than 40 years, Ramaekers Nutrition has developed patented natural products that educate and enhance immune system function in stressed cattle.
Patented formulas provide technology and opportunity.
Our patented formulas provide the technology and opportunity for newborn and adult ruminants to absorb the equivalent immune information and education found in 6 gallons of colostrum in an easy-to-deliver form. Our field veterinarians use these products as adjunctive and preventative therapy in treatment programs with or without antibiotics.
The key to this approach is to modify the animals' typical response to stress (increased cortisol production) and thus maintain a highly functional and vigilant immune system. Our studies prove that we can reduce the excessive cortisol release (by 42%) brought on by stress using a safe and economical product conveniently delivered at all stages of production.
Integrating Supplements with a Herd Health Program
We strongly advise incorporating these natural supplements into a proven herd health program, including appropriate vaccine protocols, rations, and, most importantly, mineral and trace mineral supplements. We have found in our case studies that by integrating our supplements with a herd health program, we have seen significant results with the following:
- BVD (Bovine Viral Diarrhea)
- BRD (Bovine Respiratory Disease)
- Shipping Fever
- Stocker and Feeder stress
- And many other health issues.
Cows and Calves: Protect your investment on the front side — decrease losses on the backside
Trials repeatedly have shown an improvement in Health and vigor that translates to
- Decreased sickness to below 6%
- Decreased death loss to .2-1%
- Increase in weight gain and feed conversion
- Decreased days on feed
- Increased performance ↑efficiency with a 15% improvement
- Increased yield ↑2-3%
- Increased Prime and Choice grades
- For "All Naturals," Increased Health results in an increased number of cattle "on the program" to receive the all-natural bonus at harvest.
Birth to Harvest
In the "all-natural" business of buying single-source, preconditioned cattle, our formulas help control BRD (Bovine Respiratory Disease). Since we know that 46% of healthy cattle have Mycoplasma in their respiratory tracts identified via PCR testing, prevention is of the utmost importance. For best results, it is essential to put all cattle on the program to maintain Health from birth to harvest. Our current plan calls for the following:
- 2 Newborn Immune Primer Sustained Release Bolettes with Minerals for newborn calves to educate the immune system to 3000+ pathogens
- 1 Adult Immune Primer Sustained Release with Minerals Bolus at processing or branding
- 2 Adult Immune Primer Sustained Release with Minerals Bolus at feedlot arrival
This program is an adjunct to proper parasite and vaccination programs. This program should reduce the average 12-18% dropout to 5-6% sick.
Note: Calves treated with immunotherapy: 40%
For more than 40 years, Ramaekers Nutrition has primarily focused on researching and developing natural immunotherapy supplements. Ramaekers Nutrition’s products reflect a culmination of global research and clinical experience. Dr. Ramaekers is passionate about improving animal welfare. He is proud to be on the cutting edge of veterinary (meet our veterinary team) medicine and nutrition.
Our unique Newborn Immune Primer, Adult Immune Primer, and Preconditioned Premix formulas help educate and boost the immune system for overall health and vitality. Our products can up-regulate and down-regulate an immune system. Thus, they are actual immune modulators. Immune modulators “prime” the immune system to react appropriately. Only when needed and will not overstimulate or activate without an external stimulus such as a disease-causing organism.
