Phase 1

for future productivity

Phase 2

Transform whole milk and milk
replacers from good to great

Phase 3

Maximize genetic potential
and watch them grow

Boosting the immunity and health status of youngstock is key in ensuring a successful rearing programme.

A favourable microflora determines the success of future milk production performance for a dairy calf and goat kid, and also ensures sustainable and profitable livestock production.

Given that 50% of calf mortality occurs within the first six weeks of life, farmers should aim to double calf birth weight during the first 56 days of life, reducing mortality and morbidity at the same time.

AuraCalf helps achieve these goals by imprinting animal immune systems, thereby improving intestinal health and reducing the need for antibiotics in the livestock production industry. This allows producers to maximise the genetic potential and future productivity of their livestock. AuraCalf helps to boost the health and performance of youngstock, thereby contributing to easier herd management and more financial gain.

Phase 1

Scientifically imprint immunity for future productivity

The first eight weeks of life is an important window of opportunity to increase future animal performance. AuraCalf helps to reduce the “immunity gap” of your youngstock from the first day of feeding.

Various scientific studies confirm the value of this imprinting strategy. Van Amburgh (2014) observed a direct link between healthy calf rearing and first lactation:

  • Up to 3 months earlier calving
  • 100 g extra weight yields 100 kg more milk
  • 500 kg extra milk when reared free of antibiotics
  • Up to 7% extra return on capital

Scientific research shows that AuraCalf promotes weight gain, reduces mortality rates and reduces the need for medication and vet treatments during the rearing phase.

Phase 2

Transforms whole milk and milk replacers from good to great

During the initial phase, calves, lambs and goat kids depend on a liquid diet. Digestive enzymes utilise the valuable feed nutrients for their growth.

Using AuraCalf in young animal nutrition ensures a smooth transition from a liquid to a solid diet. At this stage, AuraCalf enables the animal to develop immunologically active compounds that improve the structure and functioning of a healthy digestive system.

AuraCalf creates a healthy gut microbiome. This supports a healthier and earlier development of the intestine and the rumen, for improved animal health and productivity.

Phase 3

Maximize genetic potential and watch them grow

AuraCalf improves the quality of young animal nutrition programmes by imprinting immunity. This helps livestock get through critical phases in life.

Our products strengthen the immune system of livestock. This allows for maximum genetic potential during later stages in life. AuraCalf benefits animal health at all stages of production. A trial was recently conducted at a farm. This farm had been selected for its excellent management practices and the superior health of its livestock. AuraCalf was provided in the milk replacer from the first day of feeding. As a result, calved showed a significant increase in average weight gain as compared to the control.

With AuraCalf, a good start is half the battle!
