Wexford farm improves calf health with Precision Microbes

Tuesday 10 January 2023
Farm manager Kevin O’Hanlon milks 150-160 cows, converting to organic and all-year-round calving.
 
The last few years, he’s had issues with pneumonia and scours. Kevin says “once one gets it, no doubt the rest will get it too”.
 
“Since feeding Precision Microbes I haven’t had to inject or treat calves for scour. Yes treatment can clear it up but that is a set back."
 
“With Precision Microbes, their guts are healthy, they’re up playing, have a great shine on their coats and growth rates are good."
 
“I’m really happy with Precision Microbes and will continue to use it based on the vigour of the calves and the general health of them’’
 
‘’Absolutely, hand on heart, recommend Precision Microbes to anyone’’

Precision Microbes for calves

Precision Microbe’s pro- and post-biotic liquids are designed to improve gut health, support immunity in young calves, and provide protection.
 
Benefits:
  •  Precision Microbes is highly palatable;
  • It can be fed from day one in milk;
  • Can be used with automatic feeders;
  • Precision Microbes can help performance and growth rates;
  • Precision Microbes can help support calf immunity (with 70% of immunity being gut based);
  • Enterococcus faecium NCIMB10415 also is licensed for gut stabilisation;
  • Calves who get scour when they are on long-term Precision Microbes, have been seen to recover faster when topped up with 30ml extra a day for 3-4 days;
  • Many Irish farmers continued to feed Precision Microbes 30ml/calf daily, right up to weaning because they saw a positive difference in the calves – click to watch Kevin O’Hanlon talk through why he used long-term Precision Microbes;
  • Precision Microbes is also an ideal product for calf rearing and dairy to beef. Feed 30ml daily from arrival to weaning, feeding through milk.

“Across all our trial work I carried out, we have seen a reduction in calf diarrhoea on long-term usage. Better calf performance was also recorded,” veterinary consultant Tommy Heffernan said.
 
These results have now also been seen practically in farms up and down the country.
 
Precision Microbes products are game changers in gut health and calf health.
 
Farmers can see a difference in their calves on Precision Microbes, and that’s the most powerful data of all.”
