Weaning Calves? Start Them Right.
A strong start begins with strong starter feeds.
Weaning calves is a demanding and hectic time. Calves are often most vulnerable at weaning, facing many stressors with immune systems that aren’t fully developed. As a result, it costs the beef industry time and money to combat respiratory challenges.
At H&S Feed and Country Store, we believe a strong defense is the best offense in the fight against weaned calf stress and health challenges. That’s why Purina Precon, Purina Accuration Starter and Purina Stress Care 5 now include RX3™ Immune Support Technology to prepare a calf’s natural defense to combat respiratory challenges.
Try Purina Precon and Purina Accuration Starter complete feeds or Purina Stress Care 5 supplement feeds with RX3™ Immune Support Technology today.
Research showed weaning calves fed Purina® starter feeds with RX3™ Immune Support Technology:
- Gained, on average, 6 pounds more than the control group within a 30-day period2
- Healthy calves receiving RX3 Immune Support Technology gained more weight compared to healthy control calves3
- Were more uniform because fewer calves were poor performers
- Had less variation in average daily gain compared to control calves
