The Easy Breathe calf bolus contains a combination of ingredients that have potent antimicrobial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory activity making them very useful for combating lung infections in young calves.
Calf pneumonia or Bovine Respiratory Disease (BRD) is a complex, multi-factorial disease which results in inflammation and damage to both the lungs and respiratory tract. It is the most common reason for poor performance and death of calves in the UK and Ireland before they reach 9 weeks of age. Respiratory health can impact a calf for its entire life leading to reduced growth rates, slower finishing times and reduced milk yields.
A study from the University of Copenhagen found that one of the main components which make up the bolus stops two separate forms of bacteria from working, both which are known to cause pneumonia infections. It was discovered that the compound prohibited molecules inside the bacteria from functioning. They also found that it can break down the bacteria’s biofilm – a shield that protects them from antibodies and the animals own natural immune system. It also supports the immunity of the calf, reduces stress and helps maintain a healthy respiratory system.
