How many farmers gave up on their cattle, dairy or sheep operations due to key issues that simply cannot be overcome by symptom based chemical treatment options?
Vermate provides a low cost pro-active approach towards animal health that enables the farmer to treat all his animals on a maintenance basis.
Vermate product makes use of nemacidic fungi to reduce parasitic nematode counts in animal feaces. Internal parasites such as wireworm, tapeworm, roundworm and liver fluke in all animals are reduced to within acceptable limits. Parasite control is done either on a low maintenance pro-active basis or on a symptom treatment basis. The advantage of a biological approach is:
Vermate is applied in water, in the animal lick or on the feed ration on a low cost maintenance basis to build up a defence against parasite infestations.
Somatic cell counts in milk gives an indication of the amount of dead cells that a cow releases into the milk as a result of metabolic stress. Microbes and Humates in the Vermate product optimizes the process of feed digestion as well as nutrient uptake in order to produce milk with lower somatic cell counts. More efficient feed uptake means that the animal uses less energy to metabolize nutrients into milk. Lower levels of metabolic stress means that the animal’s kidneys and liver is put under less stress that result in less damage to the organs. This means that the productive lifespan of the animal is increased by not over stressing the animal’s organs.
