Anti-oxidants are crucial to livestock's health. They provide the total protection which ruminants and monogastrics need to optimise fertility, offspring vitality, and immune system support.
Trouw AO-mixes can easily and effectively be used to replace other anti-oxidants, such as vitamin E, by up to 50% in feeds. What's more, the mixes have been carefully compounded to ensure that all the anti-oxidants in the feed are even better digested, and their positive effects are more widely distributed throughout the animal's system.
A few days before calving, many changes happen in the body of the cow. Due to hormonal changes the body is prepared for giving birth and the start of lactation.
After calving the cow needs to mobilise a lot of calcium. When this process is not functioning, the cow gets milk fever. Moreover, before and after calving the cow does not eat much and she loses a large amount of liquids and electrolytes. These need to be replenished, or the cow becomes weak and listless. By providing Farm-O-San Reviva once direct after calving, the cow revives quickly after the calving process and a positive start of lactation is given.
CalFix is a nutritional product that reduces the risk of milk fever. Cows providing high milk yields experience a sudden increase in demand for calcium in early lactation after calving. With insufficient calcium they suffer from milk fever. Cows can be trained to absorb calcium more efficiently by limiting its availability in the weeks before calving.
We continue to help producers invest in future performance through optimised nutrition of young calves in the early stages of their life, which has a significant impact on future productivity. Trouw Nutrition communicates this through the concept 'Life Start sets Life Performance.' Providing young animals with significantly higher levels of milk replacer than in conventional diets leads to healthier animals and faster growth.
