UltraSorb Mycotoxin Absorbent

Rumen Protector

UltraSorb Mycotoxin Absorbent

UltraSorb Mycotoxin Absorbent

Mycotoxins are poisons produced from the secondary metabolic processes which occur naturally in a variety of moulds that grow on food crops. The amount and type of mycotoxin produced varies by the type of mould prevalent during different environmental conditions such as temperature and humidity. Stress on crops from insects, weeds and weather also influence mould growth and mycotoxin production.

Mycotoxins can lower feed consumption and feed conversion, reduce disease resistance, increase reproductive problems, reduce performance, and restrict genetic expression of traits.

Worried About Feeding Mouldy Silage?

Key Features

When Mycotoxins and moulds are present in feed, treating with UltraSorb can result in:

  • Increased intakes
  • Increased milk production
  • Increased growth rates
  • Improved fertility

Calf Starter Feed

Axcelera-C  Accelerator For Calves

Axcelera-C Accelerator For Calves

Axcelera-C from AB Neo is the world’s first Accelerator for calves. Each calf is offered only a handful of Axcelera-C from day 3 until weaning to supplement the existing calf milk diet. Enhanced calf nutrition is the route to lifetime performance for beef and dairy cattle, and Axcelera-C is an easy way of supplying the calf with even more lactose. Axcelera-C applies unique formulation and process technology to create a highly palatable, ultra-high lactose accelerator for calves. Unlike liquid milk, it enters and is digested directly in the rumen, accelerating its development from day 3. Trials show accelerated calves grow faster, show faster rumen development and can be weaned earlier, with reduced growth check at weaning. Incidence and severity of nutritional scours are also reduced.

Calf Starter Feed From Day 3 Until Weaning
