Immune Support

Building A Healthy Immune System Starts From Within

immune cell in action

The immune system is an amazing, complex and yet efficient system that works 24/7 to make sure animals live a healthy, wholesome life.  Every day the animals we care for require a healthy, functional immune system to protect them. Because of, this maintaining a healthy immune system is a critical component of animal care.

While it is complex, an animal’s immune system has three main areas that can influence its ability to do the job effectively.

  1. Age – young stock immune system still developing, seniors’ immune response slower
  2. Stress – weather, handling, transportation, exposure to other animals
  3. Nutrition – receiving the proper diet & supplementation to fuel a healthy immune response

While we can’t control an animal’s age nor the weather, we can help manage our livestock each day to minimize the impact of stressors during their daily activities.  Maintaining a normal routine regarding feeding, handling, milking, etc., are important for reducing stress in your animal’s life.

Building A Healthy Immune System Starts From Within

Nutrition that is delivered in your dairy, beef, goat, alpaca and llama’s diet is a critical factor in helping maintain a healthy, functioning immune system.  Proper feed normally provides the base needs for most livestock.  However, there are times when their normal diet may not provide what the immune system needs to perform its best.
