The Key to Raising Healthy Calves

Posted by Rio Nutrition on Mar 24, 2015 2:34:55 PM

Rio - Raising Healthy Calves It’s calving season. No doubt you are focusing on the health of your calves! Ensuring strong, healthy calves that bounce up right away and start sucking all begins with mama cow.

It is important to provide quality nutrition to the mama cow prior to and during calving to ensure a healthy calf. Getting quality colostrum into a calf’s system right away sets the stage for its performance from then on out. The mama’s milk provides essential antibodies to the calf which is critical to building up the calf’s immune system.

Riomune Yeast

All of our Riomax Calving Supplement Products contain a high level of the Riomune yeast. Using a supplement program with Riomune yeast will:

  • Tie up and flush out the bad scour causing bacteria
  • Stimulate the immune system
  • Help with digestion so the calf can better utilize mama’s milk

The Rio Calving Program is available in either lick tub or loose mineral form; with other products such as a yeast bolus, calving tubs and colostrum available as needed to work with the base supplement program.
