Animal health and nutrition specialist, SCA NuTec, has added
a lamb colostrum to its well-known Shepherdess range. Shepherdess
colostrum has a high immunoglobulin content, extra vitamin E
to boost immunity and NuStart, the natural gut-conditioning package.
“We have combined all the vital ingredients needed to
get orphan or weak lambs off to a flying start,” says technical
manager Norman Downey. “Shepherdess colostrum has been
closely matched to top quality ewe colostrum.
“Administered within six hours of birth, it will boost
the lamb’s immunity, provide readily available energy and
all the essential trace elements and vitamins.
“In trials we have seen that Shepherdess colostrum can
get lambs off to a good start and overcome any potential setbacks.
Adding NuStart promotes gut development and restricts the growth
of bacteria, which reduces the risk of infection. This is a great
advantage and makes the product unique.”
An easy-to-mix water-soluble powder, one 25g dose per lamb of
Shepherdess colostrum is recommended. It is available in 15 dose
and 30 dose tubs through agricultural merchants across Britain.
