Just as colostrum transfers vital immune knowledge from mother to newborn, our Immune Primer formulas use patented Transfer Factor technology to educate and activate the function of the mother & calf's immune cells within hours and without side effects. Our Transfer Factors are derived from a proprietary blend of bioactive peptides extracted from bovine colostrum & egg yolks. This blend is combined with unique plant-derived heteropolysaccharides, lactic acid producing probiotics and highly bio-available micro-nutrients. It is the Synergy of this combination of ingredients that enables the “immune intelligence" in our formulas to assist your cattle to naturally produce an effective, rapid and appropriate immune response.
PROTECT INVESTMENT ON FRONT SIDE: DECREASE LOSSES ON BACK SIDE
Advancements in technology often changes the methods we use to solve problems.
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. Over the last 35 years, Ramaekers Nutrition has developed patented natural products that educate and greatly enhance immune system function in stressed cattle.
Our patented formulas provide the technology and opportunity for the 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 normal response to stress (increased cortisol production) and thus maintain a highly functional & 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.
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 15% improvement
- Increased yield ↑2-3%
- Increased Prime and Choice grades
- For “All Naturals” Increased Health results in increased number of cattle “on program” to receive the all natural bonus at harvest
In the “all natural” business buying single source, preconditioned cattle, our formulas help control BRD. Since we now 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 important to put all cattle on the program to maintain health from birth to harvest. Our current plan calls for:
- 2 Phased-Release Immune Primer Bolettes for newborn calves to educate immune system to 3000+ pathogens
- 1 Stocker/Adult Phased-Release Immune Primer Bolus @ processing or branding
- 2 Stocker/Adult Immune Primer Bolus @ feedlot arrival
This program is an adjunct to proper parasite and vaccination programs. This should help to reduce the normal 12-18% dropout to 5-6% sick.
Note: Calves treated with immunotherapy: 40% recover without antibiotics
The expenses are as follows:
- 2 Baby Bolettes Phased-Release→ $9.00
- 1 Stocker/Adult Phased-Release stress management→$7.00
- 2 Stocker/Adult Phased-Release boluses at feedlot entry→$14.00
- Normal return on general cattle has been 5-5 ½ times per $1.00 spent and even greater return for “program” cattle +$135.00
