What's Inside 


Patented Microfused® Essential Oils promote appetite and support immunity.


Bioactives also stimulate appetite, reduce inflammation and promote immunity.

Actifibe® Prebiotic & Vitamin E establish good gut health and further promote immunity.


Complex energy source provides a quick boost of energy after birth.


Colostrum is Vital, But Limited

Calves need to be up and nursing within 2-4 hours after birth to receive vital nutrients from colostrum in milk. By 12 hours old, calves lose 50% of their ability to absorb antibodies from colostrum. Unfortunately, calves that do not receive this critical nutrition are 74 times more likely to die in the first 21 days of life.

Start Strong for Calves was specially designed to get calves up and nursing quickly so they receive the nutrition required for growth and vitality.


This natural oral drench features a unique dual action approach to energy:

  • First. A complex energy source made up of highly absorbable fats that are easily broken down for a quick boost of energy.

  • Second. Bioactives help stimulate a calf’s appetite to get them up and eating while strengthening immunity and promoting a mature and developing gut.


"The Next Time I See Him, He’s Going
To Be Up and Drinking”  

“It’s nice to know that when I have a calf down and out, I can give them Start Strong for Calves and walk away knowing that the next time I see him, he’s going to be up and drinking.”  


Dale // Minnesota Rancher
