Ramaekers Nutrition for Your Goats and Sheep

Increase your bottom line and free yourself from the endless merry-go-round of drugs and failures

Goats and Sheep. Educating the immune system of all small ruminants helps fight viral and bacterial infections and stress-induced conditions.

Trust Transfer Factor Technology

Medicine is the Science of Disease, and Nutrition is the Science of Health.

Trust transfer factor technology to optimize immune system function in small commercial ruminants. While many products use single rudimentary ingredients known to aid immune health, Ramaekers Nutrition delivers the only immune support products harnessing transfer factor supported by a unique and patented blend of essential nutrients and potent nutraceuticals.

Patented Formulas

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 goats and sheep in naturally producing an effective, rapid, and appropriate immune response.

Immune Primer

Like colostrum (or first milk), which transfers vital immune knowledge from mother to newborn, our Newborn Immune Primer and Adult Immune Primer 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.

Herd Health

While Medicine is the Science of Disease, we feel that Nutrition is the Science of Health. The bottom line is that 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.

From time to time, there is an advancement in technology that changes how we think about a problem. In the livestock business, this technology is immunotherapy. Natural Immunotherapy is just such a technology. Natural Immunotherapy is the science that educates the immune system of all small ruminants to help fight viral and bacterial infections and stress-induced conditions. It has been proven that stress has a profound negative effect on the function of the immune system.

Natural Immunotherapy

Natural Immunotherapy Products for "Other Livestock"

  • Newborn Immune Primer
  • Adult Immune Primer
  • Preconditioned Premix

For over 50 years, Ramaekers Nutrition has developed patented formulas of natural ingredients that educate and greatly enhance immune system function in stressed goats and sheep. Natural Immunotherapy is the science that educates the livestock's own immune system to fight viral and bacterial infections.

Patented formulas provide technology and opportunity.

Our patented formulas provide the technology and opportunity for the newborn to absorb the equivalent immune information and education found in 1 to 2 gallons of colostrum. These same patented formulas have bridged the technology gap to allow the same immune education in adult ruminants. Our field veterinarians use these products as adjunctive and preventative therapy in treatment programs with and without antibiotics.

Reduce Cortisol

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

Natural Immunotherapy

We strongly advise incorporating these natural supplements into a proven herd health program, including appropriate vaccine protocols, worming, rations, and, most importantly, mineral and trace mineral supplements. Our customers and producers have observed and reported on their goats and sheep since 2007. These studies show that when using natural immune supplements for thousands of goats and sheep, an overwhelming improvement in health and vigor translates into:

  • Decreased Sickness
  • Decreased Deaths
  • Improved Feed Conversion
  • Improved Newborn Survivability and Vigor
  • Improved Reproduction and Fertility

Applications

Our field veterinarians and producers use Ramaekers Nutrition Immune Primer formulas daily as adjunctive therapy to help improve their therapy outcomes. These are the areas in which they report improved performance and results:

Bacterial Infections — Improved immune function leads to decreased herd susceptibility

  • Caseous Lymphadenitis
  • Mastitis
  • Pinkeye

Viral infections — Improved immune function leads to decreased herd susceptibility: markedly reduced severity and shortened recovery times.

Herd Health — Improved immune function translates into improved Wellness and Performance.

  • Neonatal Disease Incidence Decreased
  • Reduced Shipping Stress
  • Improved Response to Parasite Control Programs
  • Improved Growth and Efficiency
  • Improved Carcass Quality
  • Enhanced Vaccine Response

Improved Reproduction

  • Improved Conception Rates
  • Improved Semen Quality
  • Improved Embryo Transfer Results

Unique Formulas

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.
