With the resistance of antibiotics becoming more and more important and laws likely to change in the near future, farmers and vets are likely to be fined for overuse of them on the dairy farm.
Ron Fields Nutrition believes it is important to increase the search for other natural products that do assist in helping to control health problems that do not include the use of antibiotics.
The noble, loyal and graceful cow has consistently served the human race through countless ages in all countries and cultures worldwide.
Recent research by Professor Christine Nicol at Bristol University in the UK showed that cows have a strong, complex emotional life, feeling pain, fear and anxiety and also worrying about the future just as we do. Therefore, it is important to Ron Fields Nutrition that cows are looked after in such a way that we can repay them for this selfless loyalty and treat them in such a way that is natural and has a positive lasting and non-medicinal effect.
Cows, calves and cattle can get a variety of illnesses. We have virtually seen them all in the form of Anaplasmosis, Anthrax, Blackleg, Bloat, Brucellosis, Bovine Virus Diarrhea (BVD), Calf Scours, Coccidiosis, Footrot, External Parasites, Haemophilus Somnus, Internal Parasites, Leptospirosis, Lumpy Jaw, Mannheimia Haemolytica , Pasteurella Multocida, Pinkeye, Ringworm, Trichomoniasis, Vibriosis and Wooden Tongue to name a few.
Whilst we cannot claim to have a product that will assist all of these illnesses, we have found that by giving a poorly cow a product to help one illness can often help and prevent another ailment developing.
Whether you breed for beef, veal, milk or for general breeding, it is important to ensure that you maintain a healthy, happy herd.
We are proud to have developed a number of products that sanitise when cleaning and will prevent infections when the cows go through it. This enhances the cows ability to produce optimum milk yields. These sanitisers have been cleared and approved safe to use by the HSE and used correctly will have no affect on contaminating the final milk or meat products.
We are constantly searching for new farmers who would like to work with us to enable us to carry out trials of our latest products. Therefore, if you have a particular problem that you would like us to address, please feel free to contact us and one of our professional nutritionists will do their best to help.
