When BioZyme® says it cares for all animals and the impact they make in the food chains, it sincerely means it. Care that comes full circle is at the heart of BioZyme and how we express our philosophy that everything impacts everything in a connective circularity.
That is why we knew it was important to create DuraFerm ®. DuraFerm is a line of nutritional supplements for sheep and goats that supports optimal digestion and nutrition for maximized performance at every stage of production.
DuraFerm is Research Proven
The DuraFerm line offers three products specifically for sheep and two for goats. Each of these products contain:
- High levels of vitamin E for reproductive tract repair
- Organic trace minerals to support embryo production and conception
- AO-Biotics® Amaferm®, a prebiotic research-proven to enhance digestibility.
Amaferm is research-proven with more than 111 published and/or presented research studies proving its increase in digestibility and ultimately its undeniable impact on the animal. In sheep and goats, Amaferm charts an increased gain through more feed efficiency. It also adds more pounds of milk to the lactating females. For more information on the research, visit our BioZyme Research Center.
Additionally, the DuraFerm products are manufactured under the highest quality standards in our plant in Saint Joseph, Missouri. In 2023, we enhanced awareness of our food safety and safe, accurate product production processes through education. All of our operations, quality and laboratory employees have successfully completed PCQI training, and all regulatory personnel are FAMI-QS trained and certified.
DuraFerm Products for Sheep
The three products exclusively made for sheep are all part of the Concept•Aid® line. They help strengthen your stock while increasing the overall lamb crop percentage.
DuraFerm® Sheep Concept•Aid®
DuraFerm Sheep Concept•Aid is a free-choice vitamin and mineral supplement for sheep designed to support reproductive success. As the flagship product, it contains Amaferm, increased levels of vitamin E and organic trace minerals. Available in a 50-pound bag, this mineral is ideal to feed year-round to your flock. However, it is designed to be fed 30 days pre-lambing through 30 days post-breeding.
DuraFerm® Sheep Concept•Aid® HEAT®
DuraFerm Sheep Concept•Aid HEAT is a free-choice vitamin and mineral supplement for sheep designed to support reproductive success when temperatures are 70 degrees and hotter. This supplement will help keep ewes bred during summer’s hottest months, during the peak breeding season. It also comes in a 50-pound bag.
DuraFerm® Sheep Concept•Aid® Protein Tub
The DuraFerm Sheep Concept•Aid Protein Tub is a protein tub with vitamins and minerals for sheep designed to support reproductive success. The 125-pound tub is fortified with 16% natural protein. It is ideal for those females in late gestation and lactation. They meet all the requirements for energy and protein, so you don’t have the added worry of ketosis or pregnancy toxemia.
DuraFerm Products Made for Goats
BioZyme realizes that the nutrient requirements for goats and sheep are slightly different. That is why the Missouri-based company also makes two supplements specifically for goats.
DuraFerm® Goat Concept•Aid®
DuraFerm Goat Concept•Aid is a free-choice vitamin and mineral supplement for goats designed to support reproductive success. Available in a 50-pound bag, this vitamin and mineral supplement is designed to be fed 30 days pre-kidding through 30-days post-breeding for optimal success. Due to its combination of organic trace minerals, vitamins and Amaferm, it is an ideal mineral for your herd year-round.
DuraFerm® Goat Concept•Aid® Protein Tub
The DuraFerm Goat Concept•Aid Protein Tub is a protein tub with vitamins and minerals for goats designed to support reproductive success. It contains the Concept•Aid goat mineral package along with 20% natural protein. It comes in a 50-pound, easy-to-handle tub.
BioZyme Makes other Complementary Products
In addition to targeted sheep and goat products, the BioZyme family of brands includes products for all species. In the Sure Champ® line, there are products with the Vita Charge® Technology that offer an undeniable impact to your herd and flock.
The Vita Charge Technology contains a unique blend of ingredients to help support animal health before, during and after a stress response. Here’s how you can incorporate Sure Champ products into your feed room for sheep and goat products.
Sure Champ® Liquid Boost®
Sure Champ Liquid Boost is a liquid for all livestock designed to provide immediate support to the animal’s digestive and immune systems. Available in two sizes, this fruit-flavored liquid helps drive the intake of feed and water. It contains Amaferm, to increase digestibility. It also contains MOS (mannan oligosaccharide), to help normalize gut microflora and support the immune system.
Sure Champ® Appetite Plus®
Sure Champ Appetite Plus, formerly known as Vita Charge Gel, is a gel for all livestock designed to provide immediate support to the animal’s digestive and immune system. It comes in a 60- and 300-mL tube, ideal for all sizes and situations. It contains Amaferm and MOS and is ideal for boosting appetite and water intake.
Sure Champ® Clench Gel
Sure Champ Clench Gel is a gel for all livestock. It supports normal digestive function during occasional diarrhea/scours. Formerly Vita Charge Clench Gel, it comes in a 30-mL tube and contains Amaferm and MOS but also includes electrolytes to support rehydration. Clench is ideal to have in the barn during lambing and kidding to help with scours.
Sure Champ® Climate Control Gel
Sure Champ® Climate Control Gel is a gel for all livestock. It supports digestive health and recovery when temperatures are above 70 degrees. Formerly Vita Charge Climate Control Gel, this product contains Amaferm and MOS. It also includes HEAT technology, a combination of essential oils, to support animals when heat is a challenge. This gel is a must-have for those hotter climates and the summer months to help maintain temperatures and promote feed and water intake.
The above products all contain the Vita Charge Technology. Every product with Vita Charge Technology contains an exact amount of B vitamins, vitamin E, potassium, zinc, MOS and Amaferm. In addition, we include a precise salt-to-sugar ratio in our products to boost water retention and hydration levels.
Customers Trust DuraFerm
Time after time, customers turn to BioZyme products. We hear from folks across the country, who love sharing the results they see when they feed DuraFerm sheep and goat products to their animals. Here’s what a few of them have to say.
In Arkansas. . .
“I was not having great results in the last couple of years with the flushes in our program, and that’s the main reason I wanted to try DuraFerm®. I put all of my recips and flush does on DuraFerm about 60 days ahead of time, and my flushes have gone from 20-40% so far this year to 60-80%, so I am tickled to death and very happy with those numbers. By far the biggest goal I had was to see if I could improve the number of embryos we get on a flush and the number of embryos to stick, and that’s where I have definitely seen some improvements in my program with DuraFerm being one of the new additions in my program this year.” – Scott Hoyle, DVM
In Oklahoma. . .
“I am a big believer in the Amaferm advantage, seeing big time results how well our sheep utilize their feed much better. We take our breeding program very seriously. The use of DuraFerm Sheep Concept•Aid Protein Tubs being out with our ewes nearly year-round is important. Since adding these tubs to our program, the ewes have had a more steady and consistent appetite along with maintaining good body condition.” – Chad Charmasson
In Virginia. . .
“We have been using BioZyme products and specifically DuraFerm Sheep Concept•Aid for over three years now. Our conception rates, the health of our flock and the health of our lambs continue to get better. We breed with some of the largest in the state on our A.I. program, and our rates have never been below 75% and as high as 90%, with our live cover being 100% on the first attempt. With a small flock, having this type of success is crucial as every ewe or lamb is a huge part of our success. I would recommend the Concept•Aid to any producer out there.” – Andy Wills
