PREMIER DEFENDER is a transition milk powder designed to be fed after colostrum in the first 7-10 days of a calf’s life before moving on to milk replacer. However, it can be used throughout the entire milk feeding period if required. It is based on 100% all milk protein with the highest quality skim milk powder together with a health package designed to get the calf off to a good healthy start.
PREMIER DEFENDER has a higher oil to protein ratio more closely resembling that of cow’s milk.
PREMIER DEFENDER contains high levels of Calf-Guard powder which is rich in specific polyclonal antibodies, probiotics and prebiotics. Polyclonal antibodies are designed to protect the gut lining from a range of harmful bacteria and virus. Probiotics/Prebiotics provide beneficial bacteria but also stimulate their growth to maintain a healthy balance in the calf`s gut.
PREMIER DEFENDER also contains high levels of mannan-oligosaccharides (derived from yeast cell walls) which have been shown to remove bad bacteria and toxins and in so doing enhance the immune response in the calf. Biocox contains a blend of essential oils with its primary role to control growth of undesirable organisms linked to calf scour and enhance the immune system.
