Top Quality Colostrum Added To Shepherdess Range

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. Sheep producers can find out where their nearest supplier is by contacting SCA NuTec on 01845 578125
