The time is coming upon us when weaning calves becomes a priority, additionally, cattle buyers are gearing up to reload pens. When it comes to starting calves off, we only get one chance to do it right—that is why we are so thankful for the incredible and versatile line of starter feeding programs we offer, now including the newly launched RX3 Wellness pack (Immune Support Technology) from Purina in all starter feeds, including PreCon, Stress Care 5 and Accuration Starter. As we all know, weaned and fresh calves are the most vulnerable during this time—lots of things are changing and stressing them out all the while their immune systems are not fully developed yet, leaving them open to multiple challenges including the very costly-respiratory. So above all else, the best thing we can do for them is to get them eating from day one. Purina takes about four years to launch new technology and for good reason—they want to make sure it works. The addition of RX3 to the starter feeds, as the title implies, is the best offense there is by providing a palatable nutritionally sound feed that includes components to prepare the calf’s immune system to recognize challenges quicker, respond more appropriately, and recover faster!
