OPTI-MUM with LUNG GUARD is a premium quality milk replacer. OPTI-MUM with LUNG GUARD is specially designed to aid in the prevention of respiratory disorders, improvement in breathing and reduces the use of antibiotics. OPTIMUM with LUNG GUARD includes essential oils that inhibit the growth of bacteria, and help to stimulate your calf's immune system. Like the standard OPTI-MUM milk replacer, OPTIMUM with LUNG GUARD is formulated to optimise skeletal and structural growth for replacement heifers in dairy and beef herds. OPTI-MUM with LUNG GUARD contains high quality whey milk ingredients, resulting in efficient absorption of protein. It boasts Triple Shield protection to increase the growth of intestinal micro flora, and prevent digestive scour.

Triple Shield Protection

OPTI-MUM with LUNG GUARD calf milk replacer uses the triple shield protection system. This triple action system ensures your calves are healthy and strong by doing the following:
Increases intestinal micro flora production: Intestinal micro flora plays an essential role in the development of a calf by helping to build a strong and healthy immune system and builds a healthy digestive system.
Prevents lung disorders: OPTI-MUM with LUNG GUARD is specially designed to prevent lung disorders in calves. 
Reduces risk of scour: Scour in calves can be more common in hand reared calves causing dehydration, loss of electrolytes and minerals, reduces weight gain and in severe cases can even lead to death. OPTI-MUM with LUNG GUARD calf milk replacer reduces scour in hand reared calves making them just as healthy as calves that are being suckled by their mothers.
Minimizes Harmful bacteriaOPTI-MUM with LUNG GUARD calf milk replacer will reduce the amount of harmful bacteria such as E-coli, Clostridia and Salmonella in a calf's system. This will help promote healthy calves.

Feeding Routines

The calf milk replacer is easy to prepare: simply mix 40°C water with the OPTI-MUM milk powder at the rates shown in the table below:



Reasons for using OPTI-MUM calf milk replacer

High Quality Ingredients: OPTI-MUM with LUNG GUARD calf milk replacer is manufactured using high quality whey milk ingredients. Using these high quality ingredients leads to highly efficient absorption of the product's high protein content.

Triple Shield Protection: This system leads to increased growth of intestinal micro flora, reduces scours in calves and reduces the growth of harmful bacteria

Versatility: OPTI-MUM with LUNG GUARD calf milk replacer can be used for once a day or twice a day feeding and is ideal for computerised or ad lib feeding systems.

Decreased Disease Risk: Using milk replacer greatly reduces the threat of Johne's disease. Johne's disease causes the the gut wall to thicken over time and it's symptoms include, reduced productivity, weight loss, scouring and ultimately death. Johne's disease is typically spread through the mammary glands. The milk from infected cattle should never be fed to calves.

Antibiotic Resistance: Feeding calves antibiotic waste milk should always be avoided. Calves that are fed milk with traces of antibiotics have shown to build resistance to antibiotics. This can lead to the animal not responding to antibiotics later in life.

Beef Enterprises: When calves are bought into beef herd milk replacer is the only option available. OPTI-MUM with LUNG GUARD calf milk replacer is ideal for these calves and the triple shield protection system will help strengthen the calves immune system and reduce stress to the calves.
