Cost-effective way to supply natural antibodies keeps the herd fighting fit

NATURAL antibodies against rotavirus, coronavirus and E coli, the three most common causes of infectious calf scour, are supplied in Scourtect 3 from Rhone Merieux.

Stockist Battle, Hayward and Bower claims Scourtect 3 – a serocolostrum produced from hyper-immunised cows – is a cost-effective way to supply calves with essential antibodies.

The product must be kept cool in a fridge and producers enquiring about it will receive a free cool bag while stocks last.

Cost is £13.80 for a 100ml bottle (01522-529206).
