You have waited for this day. It was nine months ago when you carefully selected the semen and chose the right mating, and now she is finally here.

But what is your plan now? How do you ensure she receives the proper care from the moment she hits the ground? 

High-quality direct-fed microbials (DFMs) can be the ticket to a healthy, thriving calf. It’s a start that ensures the good guys (healthy bugs) get the upper hand. DFMs are critical in establishing a healthy gut and combatting harmful bacteria, but not just any DFMs will do. The right DFM needs to have enough CFU (colony forming units) of high-quality lactic acid bacteria to make a difference.

Only YOU can prevent pathogenic bacteria growth in her gut

The RumiLife® Pop™ DFM product line provides high-quality, beneficial, healthy bacteria that attach to your calf’s intestinal lining, increasing nutrient absorption while also inhibiting pathogenic bacteria growth. These DFMs dominate the digestive tract and help your calves overcome obstacles associated with stress or navigate challenges related to nutrient quality or quantity, variable weather, their environment or housing, or transportation.

Simply put, they are DFMs packed with purpose to lay a healthy foundation for the rest of her life.
