WATCH: The power to beat scour


Eugene Mc Cabe farms with his son – Francis – in Drumgoon, Co. Cavan.

They formed a farm partnership three years ago and milk approximately sixty-five cows and finish most of the progeny.

Sacrolyte

They have been using Sacrolyte for many years; the supplementary feed may be used in case of, during periods of, or recovery from digestive disturbance (diarrhoea). Diarrhoea in young animals leaves them weak and dehydrated.

Sacrolyte from Univet is a winning 4-in-1 combination of electrolytes, energy, B-vitamins and a unique gelling agent.

It is a complete feeding stuff recommended for the stabilisation of water and electrolyte balance in young calves and pigs.

It can be given in water or milk and is easily mixed and is very palatable, according to Univet.The unique gel helps stabilise the gut and speeds recovery.

Product Availability

Sacrolyte comes in three pack sizes – a box of 15 by 100g sachets, a bucket of 50 sachets and a 3kg bucket.
