A two-phase calf health program providing passive immunity and supporting gut health in Phase 1,
then maintaining gut health while supporting rumen and immune system development in Phase 2.
Phase 1: In phase 1, a key component is egg-derived antibodies. Egg antibodies can provide crucial passive immunity to common diseases after colostral antibodies have dropped off and before the calf’s own immune system kicks in.
Phase 2: As the calf’s adaptive immune system develops, she is ready to switch to Optiwean Phase 2. Here, the egg antibodies are replaced with algal beta glucan. Beta glucan is a very effective immune modulator, resulting in improved antibody production as the calf’s immune system develops.
