Consisting of yeast culture, yeast cell wall, yeast extracts, bacillus subtilis, immune bioactives, yucca, and zinc methionine, TomaHawk iL Zn has passed the evaluation by a world-renowned veterinary group in the western United States.

For a long time, ionophores and medicated feed additives have appealed to calf growers who wish to increase overall efficiency and growth while keeping their cattle disease-free. Amid the growing trend of natural feed additives for calves- prebiotics, probiotics, and postbiotics technologies, are now increasingly being utilized to impact animal health and performance. 

TomaHawk iL Zn by MicroBasics and Calf Distinction is committed to giving these producers effective and natural alternatives to conventional ionophores and antibiotics. Each ingredient used in the product has been thoroughly researched, which sets this product apart from other products in the market when it comes to effectiveness and return on investment.

As evident, Tomahawk iL Zn is a natural feed additive for cattle that consists of yeast culture, yeast cell wall, yeast extracts, bacillus subtilis, immune bioactives, yucca and zinc methionine. The product was recently evaluated for its effectiveness and economic returns by a world-famous veterinary group in the western United States.

In a large scale trial conducted on a commercial calf grower site, day-old dairy and dairy-crossbred steer and heifer calves were found to be at ultra high risk (UHR) of developing BRD after they were randomly divided into two experimental groups. As per reports, a total of 1,374 calves were included in the trial.

While the control group received their normal milk and feed ration with no additives, the second group using the same amount of milk and feed ration was given an additional 20 ml of TomaHawk iL Zn on arrival. Calves were then fed 3ml/feeding (total of 6ml/day) during the small hutch phase (average of 32 days) and 6ml/head/day of Tomahawk iL Zn in their grain during the large hutch phase (average of 54 days).

Two important indicators of calf heath is mortality and morbidity. Efforts to minimize death loss and the economic losses associated with it, rely heavily upon decreasing incidence of disease. TomaHawk iL Zn had an overall mortality reduction of 3.56%. Mortality was being affected 150 days after the calves stopped receiving TomaHawk iL Zn.

Here’s are some key data points that were observed during the trial:

  1. TomaHawk iL Zn had an overall mortality reduction of 3.56%
  2. TomaHawk iL Zn has 9.71% Total outs reduction in calves with low total proteins
  3. Feeding TomaHawk iL Zn had a net economic advantage of $5.34/animal
  4. TomaHawk iL Zn had an initial Gastrointestinal Disease Treatment reduction of 14.55%
  5. TomaHawk iL Zn had an initial Gastrointestinal Disease Treatment reduction of 14.55%
  6. TomaHawk iL Zn has an initial UF Bovine Respiratory Disease Treatment reduction of 15.4%
