FRA Alpha Calf | Ruminant | Health

The Challenge

Dairy and beef farmers know that their most important investment lies in rearing healthy thriving calves. Milk and milk replacers provide most of the nutrients required for this purpose, but all too often gut and respiratory infections put animals and farmers under extra pressure. This under-performance of calves leads to under-performance throughout the production cycle of the farm, in terms of meat and milk production, reproduction.


The Solution

FRA® Alpha Calf liquid provides a concentrated blend of nutrients known to scientists as 1-monoglycerides. In laboratory studies these special compounds demonstrate inactivation of fat enveloped viruses, such as, Bovine Herpes Virus (IBR), Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), Parainfluensa Virus (PI3), Bovine Corona Virus (BCV) and others (Hierholzer et al., 2007).

Furthermore, they have also been shown to dramatically reduce growth of a wide range of bacteria including strains of streptococcus, staphylococcus, E.coli, clostridia, chlamydia, salmonella and many more (Preuss et al., 2005), (Kabara et al., 1972).

 

» Mother's milk

1-Monoglycerides are present to varying degrees in mammalian milk. Scientists propose that these nutritional compounds contribute to the protection of infants (Hamosh M. 2007). Humans have very high levels of alpha-monoglycerides, cows have very low levels. FRA® Alpha Calf liquid raises the levels available to your calves.

 

» The powers of plants

FRA® Alpha Calf liquid also provides a complex blend of herbs and essential oils that have been studied for generations for their natural protective properties. Scientific studies show that our plant extracts have a synergetic effect with alpha-monoglycerides to inhibit growth of virus and bacteria (Preuss et al., 2005).

 

» Micro-ingredients

 

Adding a small amount of carefully selected micro-ingredients induces a synergetic effect.

 

FRA® Alpha Calf liquid is an environmental friendly product, and safe for both animals and humans. FRA® Alpha Calf liquid allows farmers and veterinarians to have a solution to one of the most common disease syndromes in beef and dairy calves.
