Value of ProCrypt™ for New-Born Calves

Updated: Jun 24

The first 10 days is the most important feeding period of a newborn calf’s life. During the first 5 days, the calf is protected from most pathogens by passive immunity from colostrum, so it is important that the cow has produced a high level of immunoglobulins (IgG’s) before calving. Passive immunity from colostrum only lasts about 5 days and during the next two weeks the calf is susceptible environmental pathogen challenge until the immature immune system becomes completely functional.


Implementation of a good nutritional program in the cow that supports high antibody levels in colostrum at calving time will help protect the newborn calves from infective pathogens. Research has shown that ProCryptcan raise the immunoglobulin level in colostrum by 12% to 15% when fed to the cow 30 days before calving.


Protect Calves with ProCrypt

ProCryptwill help protect newborn calves from neonatal diarrhea caused by bacteria; E. coli, Clostridium, Salmonella and protozoa; Cryptosporidium, Coccidia as well as an aid for diarrhea caused by Rota and Coronavirus.

When treatment becomes necessary, use a high-quality oral electrolyte product that corrects metabolic acidosis and hydrates the scouring calf as quickly as possible.

12%-15% Higher IgG in Colostrum

Benefits of ProCrypt™:

· 12%-15% higher IgG level in colostrum

· Protects calves from neonatal diarrhea

· Maintains optimum mucosal and crypt protection and tight junctions of the intestinal villi which causes “leaky gut” and pathogen entry into the calf’s tissues

· Affects pathogen attachment in the intestine reducing toxin production and inflammation

· Impacts pathogen load by inhibition of their communication (“quorum sensing”) and food deprivation


ProCrypt™ is an OMRI certified feed additive from selected chestnut wood (Castanea Sativa) that supports the health of animals.

ProCrypt™ provides a diversity of bioactive polyphenols providing optimum use and absorption of nutrients and maintenance of a strong immune system.

ProCrypt™ can be used in all livestock species and is safe for the environment.


ProCrypt™ Provides Value Added Benefits


· Protection of young calves through optimum IgG levels in colostrum

· Maintenance of a low pathogen load by aiding in the maintenance of healthy intestinal tissue and action of selective astringent properties

· Broad spectrum protection:

o Protozoa - Cryptosporidium and Coccidiosis

o Bacteria - E. Coli, Salmonella, and Clostridia

o Virus - Rotavirus and Coronavirus

· Maintains intestinal integrity – aids in prevention of leaky gut in the small intestine

· Maintains optimum liver health and function – high antioxidant qualities and helps regulate rumen pH to prevent acidosis and development of liver abscesses

· Promotes good rumen function – Optimum feed efficiency and nutrient intake levels promote growth, production, and animal health

· No withdrawal issues – usage at any stage of production

· Heat stable to over 300F – feed processing is no issue
