We develop micronutrient products for calf fattening to improve immunity and performance in veal calves.
HOKOVIT micronutrient specialties contain natural substances such as yeast extracts, branched-chain polypeptides, bio-active amino acids and micronized vitamins, which improve immunity, health and performance.
The following mechanisms operate in the body:
- When a veal calf arrives at the fattening farm, the animal is orally administered micronized vitamins in the form of HOKOSTAR. This reverses the short-term energy, iron and vitamin deficiencies after transportation and stimulates the desire to eat. The positive effects of the micronized vitamins in HOKOSTAR are visible fifteen minutes after administration.
- Thanks to their positive influence on metabolism, micronutrients as a supplement in the milk substitute-based veal calf ration supports optimal growth of the animals. This is visible in higher daily weight gain and improved feed conversion.
- HOKOVIT micronutrients as a supplement in the milk substitute for veal calves strengthen the immune system which improves defenses against pathogens and drastically reduces medication costs. Calves recover much more quickly after treatments.
- The micronutrients ensure optimal gastrointestinal flora, support the development of the digestive system and stimulate digestive processes.
