Essential amino acids support calf health and the rapid growth they and other young animals experience. Additionally, young stock, especially beef and dairy calves, can benefit from supplementation of key amino acids that support digestive health.

Whether to support normal digestive health or adding to electrolytes when calves need hydration, adding amino acids can help in several ways.

Supporting The Gut In Young Calves With Amino Acids

Research has shown that including the following amino acids have a positive benefit when fed to calves that need help to maintain normal digestive health.

  • Glycine – Helps support fecal consistency and the mucous lining of the GI tract.
  • Glutamine  – Helps maintain intestinal integrity and is a precursor to GI epithelial cells

Both of these amino acids have also been shown to facilitate electrolyte absorption during times where electrolyte therapy is necessary.

Threonine, an essential amino acid, has been shown to support growth in calves when added to their diet.
