St. Joseph, MO – The new Gain Smart Stocker Program from BioZyme Inc. provides a research-proven, three-step supplement system for naturally increasing calf health, appetite, and more cost effective gain.
Known for research and proven results in forage utilization, it was just a matter of time before BioZyme launched it’s first-ever line of stocker mineral. All mineral options contain BioZyme’s proprietary prebiotic, Amaferm®, to promote calf health and economically produced pounds by maximizing the natural energy and protein available in forage and feed.
When added to a forage diet, Amaferm has been research-proven to provide 16% more energy plus 34% more microbial (natural) protein which led to .29 lbs. of average daily gain (ADG) on calves fed high-quality, small grains pasture in a University of Arizona study. When added to a high-grain diet, Amaferm is also proven to stabilize the rumen environment, which is very important to maximizing efficiency.
“Feeding the Gain Smart Stocker Program maximizes digestion no matter the diet, whether it’s forage or grain,” said Twig Marston, Technical Sales Field Manager at BioZyme. “Products recommended in the program accelerate gain by stimulating the calf’s rumen to function at top efficiency, maximizing both the natural energy and protein available to the animal. The program also works to improve calf health by reducing the effects of stress, the greatest immunity inhibitor, plus pays a 2 to 1 return through more gain and use of less medication.”
