Phase 1

Scientifically imprint immunity
for future productivity

Phase 2

Converts 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 the youngstock is of crucial importance for a successful rearing programme.

A favourable microflora determines the success of future milk yield performance for a dairy calf and goat kid, and also influences the profitability for meat production.

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

AuraCalf helps you to achieve these goals, by imprinting the immunity, and assisting the development, structure and health of the gut microbiome. Production animals will be able to maximize genetic potential and future productivity. AuraCalf offers a healthy and high performing youngstock, contributing to easier herd management and more financial gain!

AuraCalf - Auranta - Boosting the animal immune system

Phase 1

Scientifically imprint immunity for future productivity

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

Various scientific studies confirm the value of this imprinting strategy. Van Amburgh (2014) observed a direct relation 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 increases weight gain, improves survival rate and reduces the need for medication and vet treatments in the rearing phase.

Phase 2

Converts whole milk and milk replacers from good to great

At start, calves, lambs and goat kids are depending on a liquid diet. Digestive enzymes utilize the valuable feed nutrients in order to let them grow.

AuraCalf as a standard in young animal nutrition, ensures a smooth transition from a liquid to a solid diet. At this stage, AuraCalf enables the animal to immunologically develop the structure and function of the healthy gut.

AuraCalf creates an optimum balance of the gut microbiome. This supports a healthier and earlier development of the intestine and the rumen, for better lifetime efficiency.

Phase 3

Maximize genetic potential and watch them grow

AuraCalf will help in young animal nutrition programmes to imprint immunity and overcome the critical phases in life.

AuraCalf activates the immune system, allowing for maximum genetic potential during later stages in life. Every animal benefit’s with AuraCalf, no matter what production level you are. Recently a trial was conducted at a farm, selected for its good management practices and good health status. AuraCalf was given in the milk replacer as a standard from the first day of feeding. Results show significant increased average weight gain as compared to the control.

With AuraCalf, a great start is half the battle!
