Warmer weather brings summer stressors that can affect the performance of the herd and impact your reproductive success. The summer grazing period can be one of the most challenging times of the year for the cow calf operation, but it doesn’t have to be. The best way to combat summer stressors is to target them before they strike. Don’t fry summer preg rates with VitaFerm® HEAT®!

VitaFerm HEAT

 

Why It Works

The Amaferm Advantage:
Amaferm is a precision-based prebiotic that is research-proven to combat heat stress. It also helps stimulate appetite, increase feed digestibility and maximize nutrient absorption.

Capsaicin:
Capsaicin keeps cattle eating smaller meals throughout the day while also acting as a vasodilator to mitigate the effects of endophyte positive fescue. Also proven to increase water intake.

Garlic:
Garlic acts as a natural insect repellent as the smell repels insects through breath and skin excretion.

Do you have cattle who aren’t your favorites because they don’t shed off well or quickly, take longer to breed back, stand in the pond more frequently than others and maybe you see them panting a lot? They may have endophyte intolerance. If you have fescue grass, there’s a good chance there’s endophyte growing in it. This cow was one we bought who exhibited all the symptoms of fescue toxicity. She was panting with her winter hair still fully intact on August 3, and she was always standing in the pond. Someone told us about a mineral product called VitaFerm HEAT, and I thought we’d never be able to afford feeding our cows this mineral compared to feed store brand mineral prices. But, we decided to try it out. The changes in Phoebe weren’t overnight, of course, but we saw a HUGE change in her over the next few months. She shed her winter hair fully, she bred back on her first cycle with the bull after that, no more panting, and very limited pond standing. We’ve continued to feed the VitaFerm HEAT mineral since then, along with a few of their other mineral products, and I’m definitely a believer.”
