Nutrition is the Science of Health and Medicine is the Science of Disease
Advancements in technology often change the methods we use to solve problems. 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 & bacterial infections and stress induced conditions. It has been proven that stress has a profound negative effect on the function of the immune system. Over the last 35 years, Ramaekers Nutrition has developed patented formulas of natural ingredients that educate and greatly enhance immune system function in stressed goats and sheep.
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 gap in technology to allow the exact same immune education in adult ruminants. Our field veterinarians use these products as adjunctive and preventative therapy in treatment programs with and without antibiotics. The key to this approach is to modify the animals response to stress ( increased cortisol production) and to maintain a highly functional & vigilant immune system.
We always advise incorporating these natural supplements into a proven herd health program including appropriate vaccine protocols, worming, appropriate rations and most importantly mineral and trace mineral supplements.
Our customers and producers have observed and reported to us that when using natural immune supplements over the past 8 years in thousands of goats and sheep an overwhelming improvement in health and vigor that translates into:
- Decreased sickness
- Decreased Deaths
- Improved feed conversion
- Improved newborn survivability and vigor
- Improved Reproduction and Fertility
Our field veterinarians and producers use Ramaekers Nutrition Immune Primer formulas as an adjunctive therapy on a daily basis to help improve their therapy outcomes. These are the areas that they report improved performance and results:
Bacterial Infections-- Improved immune function leads to decreased herd susceptibility.
- Caseous Lymphadenitis
Viral infections - Improved immune function leads to decreased herd susceptibility.
Markedly decreased 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 Conception Rates
- Improved Semen Quality
- Improved Embryo Transfer results
