Keeping Calving Season Scour Free with XPC Availa 4 Mineral

January 28, 2019


To help producers maintain healthy calves, Central Valley Ag offers Purina XPC Availa 4 mineral in bags or tubs. XPC mineral can be very beneficial to your cow-calf operation this calving season. The advantage of the XPC and Availa 4 combination is that these ingredients are non-antibiotic and work together to boost cow-calf health.

Many of you have been utilizing Availa-4 mineral from pre-calving to rebreeding for multiple years. But for those of you who haven’t, you may be missing out of some beneficial benefits for your herd. This mineral offers improved colostrum quality, increased calf health, shorter estrus return times in cows, and improved overall animal health. The Zinpro chelated minerals also provide a much higher availability of zinc, copper, cobalt, and manganese. Plus, it’s the most bioavailable trace minerals on the market, meaning the minerals are absorbed by the animal to deliver their full benefit.

Besides Availa 4, this combo also carries the Original Diamond V XPC yeast culture that brings added health benefits. XPC can help improve forage digestion in cows and can help increase immunoglobulins in the colostrum by up to 16%. Trials have even shown E-Coli shedding can be reduced by as much as 80% with this mineral. Overall, this means a more successful transfer of immunity from the cow to the calf, thus improving calf health.

Stop by your local Central Valley Ag feed location and ask about XPC Availa 4 mineral for your herd this year. And while you are in, ask us about our Spring mineral promotion starting February 1st.
