NEW PRAGUE, Minn. — Did you know 70% of the immune system resides in or around a calf’s digestive tract? Maintaining normal digestive health at the start of your calves’ lives help you raise fast-growing calves with healthy, functioning immune systems. First Arrival® with Encrypt® contains the broadest range of novel and innovative ingredients, including a full range of eubiotics, to help calves maintain normal digestive health and vigorous immune function. Ingredients include:
- Encrypt® powder, a unique soluble and insoluble fiber source containing organic acids that helps maintain the protective layers of the gut
- Dried Egg Protein — both egg yolk and whole egg sources
- Specialized condensed whey solubles sourced from dairy cows
- A source of micro-encapsulated, live (viable), naturally occurring microorganisms
- Essential oils
- Yucca schidigera, psyllium seed husk and vitamins A, D and E provide added support for the growing calf
After calves have consumed their colostrum, feed First Arrival® with Encrypt® Newborn Calf Powder morning and night for at least two weeks. The powder is easy to use in various milk feeding systems, including:
- Automatic feeders
