F1 Fresh Start is a fundamentally essential product for all fresh calved cows.
The physical expansion of the rumen to take up the space left by the foetal calf gives two key benefits:
The provision of extra soluable calcium and phosphorus in F1 Fresh Start allows the animal to reduce the threat from milk fever. Whilst we cannot claim that it is a cure for this condition F1 Fresh Start will, in most cases eliminate the threat.
F1 Fresh Start is a highly palatable rumen filling drink, helping to reduce cases of displaced abomasum.
F1 Fresh Start uses a high-energy whey base, allowing for a rapid recovery post-calving.
F1 Fresh Start contains a dose of Protected Choline for enhanced liver function. F1 Fresh Start is rich in Calcium & Phosphorus, helping to reduce Milk Fever instances, as well as a Vitamin Complex.
F1 Fresh Start contains a large dose of F1 Yeast. F1 Yeast has a beneficial effect on rumen micro-flora population and double dosing around calving has been shown to increase overall productivity.
F1 Fresh Start is a top-selling product for Lakeland Scottish Feeds & Services for a reason:
A single dose of F1 Fresh Start contains four times the normal daily recommended dose of F1 Yeast. F1 Yeast has a beneficial effect on ruimen micro-flora population from the outset. It is well known that double-dosing F1 Yeast in the close up dry period and the fresher group gives a genuine increase in overall productivity.
F1 Fresh Start features the addition of a double dose of protected choline. The choice of protected choline that we use is Sta-Chol. This product is double protected and double coated. This valuable source of choline has been proven to enhance liver function by removing excess fat deposits from the liver. We recommend that this dose forms part of a more general program of feeding protected choline to the close up and fresher groups by using F1 De-Tox.
A summary of features of F1 Fresh Start:
Giving the cow a dose or two of F1 Fresh Start within five to ten minutes of her calving will speed up her recovery. Cows that stand and cleanse quickly also tend to be better mothers and also return to the feed trough more rapidly. Offering this palatable drink will increase appetite response from the very start of lactation.
This one act has major long-term benefits.
