Rotavirus is the biggest single cause of infectious scours in young calves, causing more than half of all cases of scouring in calves less than three weeks old.
Each dose of ImmuStart® delivers ingredients that are important for antibody production. These ingredients combined with vitamin A, E and microencapsulated probiotic bacteria provide a biologically stable, highly effective protection system to aid and support the immune system, assisting in helping protect against pathogenic challenges. ImmuStart® contains large doses of microencapsulated probiotic bacteria which help support calves’ immunity by filling-up the intestinal tract attachment sites, helping to minimise colonisation by excluding pathogens from attaching to the gut wall.
