I gave my calves ImmuBoost® when they arrived, and I’m just convinced it sets them up to do well. They never scoured, they had good bellies on them, and the milk didn’t blow them out. It just jump starts their systems to accept what’s in store more readily. I think that whatever you give them after you use ImmuBoost®, it’s going to work twice as well. I also used DanCalf® Plus. At one stage, they were just jumping around in the pen; they were so full of life! I found out then that they were receiving double the dose of DanCalf® Plus, which is why they were feeling extra good. We got them back to the normal dose and they did so well – they really stood out from a nearby group of calves that weren’t receiving these products and having all sorts of trouble.
