ProFlora CALF Capsule (50 per jar)

When choosing probiotics for newborn calves, it's essential to select products specifically formulated for calves and to follow recommended dosages and administration protocols. Additionally, proper colostrum management and good hygiene practices are essential for maximizing the benefits of probiotics in calf rearing.  Probiotics for newborn calves can play a crucial role in their health and development. Calves are born with a sterile gut, meaning they lack the beneficial bacteria necessary for proper digestion and immune function. Providing probiotics to newborn calves can help establish a healthy gut microbiota by introducing beneficial bacteria early on. Here are some reasons why probiotics are beneficial for newborn calves:

Digestive Health: Probiotics can aid in the digestion of milk or milk replacer by breaking
down complex nutrients into simpler forms that the calf's body can absorb more easily.
This can help prevent digestive upsets such as diarrhea, which are common in young

Immune Support: A significant portion of the calf's immune system is located in the
gut. By promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria, probiotics can help strengthen the
calf's immune system, making them more resistant to diseases and infections.

Colostrum Enhancement: Probiotics can improve the absorption of antibodies from
colostrum, the first milk produced by the cow after giving birth. This can enhance the
calf's passive immunity, providing protection against various pathogens until its own
immune system matures.

Reduced Stress: The process of birth, separation from the dam, and transportation to a
new environment can be stressful for newborn calves. Probiotics can help alleviate stress by supporting gut health, which in turn can improve overall resilience and well- being.

Antibiotic Alternatives: Probiotics offer a natural and sustainable alternative to
antibiotics in calf rearing. Overuse of antibiotics can lead to antibiotic resistance and
other negative consequences. Probiotics can help maintain gut health without the risk
of promoting antibiotic resistance.
