New supplement for newborn calves introduced
Van Beek Natural Science introduces Tri-Pectate Capsules, a feed supplement that protects newborn calves from stress-induced scours with its unique mode of action.

These capsules are formulated with Axaphen, a patented combination of essential oils and enhancers. Axaphen has powerful antimicrobial properties that eliminate bacteria on contact.

Pectin is dietary fiber in Tri-Pectate that swells up to hold fluid and normalizes gut flow. It also helps remove toxins while coating the intestinal wall, thus proactively working against GI problems before they start.
