Weaning is a stressful time and calves still have undeveloped immunity so are very susceptible to parasitism from both gastronintestinal parasites and coccidiosis. The result can have an impact on their growth rates.
Alleva animal health have developed a world-first formula specifically designed for weaned calves called Turbo initial. The oral drench provides worm parasite coverage, as well as helping to protect against coccidiosis. This provides protection during the vulnerable period after calves come off their coccidiostat-treated meal onto pasture. Cost is approx. $2.60 per 100kg calf (excl GST).
Turbo Initial is part of a new Turbo range of drenches. The Turbo pour on is a new drench combination with extended safety margins and potency levels compared to other combinations.
