Manufacturer: BioZyme

A complete pelleted premix designed to be mixed with protein, grain and forage. Formulated with a high concentration of essential vitamins and trace minerals to meet the animal’s nutritional needs and help offset the negative effects of stress during weaning, receiving, or recovery.

Key Benefits:

The correct balance of required minerals and vitamins.

Delivers an organic level of essential trace minerals (zinc, copper and manganese) along with increased levels of Vitamin E, niacin and thiamine to increase the animal’s ability to overcome the negative effects of stress.

The Amaferm® Advantage

Promotes increased feed intake and maximized digestive efficiency. Helps animals start and stay on feed and adjust to ration and environmental changes.

What value does it have in the animal?

Provides producers with the ability to build their own feeds, rather than purchase expensive commercial complete calf starter feeds. Nutrition consultation and ration formulation are available.

VitaFerm Sure Start Pac Caution

Due to copper level, do not feed to sheep.

Recommended Feeding Directions:

Feed to newly weaned or received beef calves at the rate of 0.5 lbs. per head per day.
