It seems simple to establish a routine with your livestock projects. You probably already have a regimen when it comes to feeding times and rations. Depending on the time of year and other activities, you should have time set aside for daily skin and hair care as well as exercise. Doesn’t it make sense to incorporate a supplement to help protect your animals’ health and well-being?
Vita Charge® is a fast-acting, multi-species livestock supplement that can help before, during or after stressful times when livestock need maintenance, protection or assistance in recovery. The Vita Charge product line offers versatility in many forms making application easy depending on what is best for your animal. When incorporated into a daily routine, Vita Charge products become part of a proactive regimen. Most Vita Charge products can be used across multiple species.
The Vita Charge products contain Amaferm®, a prebiotic designed to enhance digestibility by amplifying the nutrient supply for maximum performance. It is research-proven to increase intake, digestion and absorption.
Did you know that 70% of your animal’s health starts in its digestive system? If you can keep your animal drinking and eating and its digestive system regulated, it should stay healthy. Vita Charge Liquid Boost ® is a liquid supplement that supports digestive health and promotes feed and water intake during occasional times of stress and recovery. It can be administered via a medicator, mixed with water, used as a drench or top-dressed on feed. Although it is suggested for times of stress or recovery, using it daily will help prevent your animals from getting stressed, and when they do travel to a show, they will be used to the palatable flavor it provides, making sure they don’t skip a beat when it comes to water and feed intake.
Once you have traveled to the show, the check-in process, wash rack and new environment can be stressful. To help keep stress at bay, you might want to use one of the quick-acting Vita Charge gels. Depending on the temperature, Vita Charge offers two options to help keep your animal on track.
Vita Charge Gel is a quick-acting gel to help overcome the challenges of stress. Vita Charge Climate Control Gel is formulated to help overcome the challenges of both changes in the environment and extreme temperatures. In addition to Amaferm, the Vita Charge Climate Control Gel contains capsaicin to help maintain circulation to support animal performance in heat-stress situations as well as maintain normal body temperature.
Vita Charge Clench Gel is another gel option and should be kept in your show box or feed room for when you notice an animal with loose stool that might not be feeling its best. It is ideal for use during episodes of diarrhea and/or scours to support recovery, hydration and nutrient absorption. It contains electrolytes to aid in hydration, and like all Vita Charge products, it can be used during competition with no withdrawal period.
The final Vita Charge product to consider for your routine, specially formulated for beef cattle, is the Vita Charge Stress Tub. This cooked tub is beneficial to have in the pens or runs and includes a heat-tolerant probiotic to work synergistically with Amaferm to replenish and stimulate gut bacteria. Stress Tubs conveniently allow beef cattle to get their daily dose of Vita Charge without additional handling.
Take a proactive approach to your stress management program with Vita Charge. Make Vita Charge part of your routine from daily feeding to show time and you should experience healthier, happier animals.
