Prevents scours and optimises the growth of your young livestock

What is OptiCalf?
BioGro certified as an organic input, OptiCalf™ is a standard grade natural zeolite supplement that when fed to calves significantly reduces scours, stimulates livestock immune systems and enhances calves resistence to disease.
Zeolites are aluminosilicates derived from lava rock deposits in NZ. They have a unique three-dimensional porous structure, allowing them to absorb and release water reversibly. In addition, they have an amazing ability to absorb and bind positively charged ions (so called cations), such as, but not limited to: ammonium (NH4+), sodium (Na+), potassium (K+) and calcium (Ca2+).
This give it an extraordinary ability to absorb, adsorb, hold, release, and exchange certain nutrients and pathogens according to conditions of the surrounding environment.
Ask for OptiCalf at your local rural retailer.
Simply add OptiCalf to your calf-meal mix, or place it directly into feed troughs to allow calves to self-manage their intake. You cannot overfeed OptiCalf but ensure calves have access to plenty of fresh water.
Addition rates from 10gm per calf, per day – or
ad-lib as necessary. OptiCalf is available in 25kg bags and 1000kg bulk bags.
