FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
SmartCare feed additive is a natural, immune health product used in liquid calf diets for optimal health and performance.
Unlike any other product in the dairy industry, SmartCare feed additive was conceived and developed from more than 75 years of time-tested scientific principles, along with Diamond V human-product innovation, and ultimately, performance of the technology in dairy animals.
SmartCare postbiotic is not a single compound, but rather a microbial fermentate composed of hundreds of bioactive compounds. These bioactives work synergistically with the biology of the animal to support calf health and performance.
Research shows SmartCare feed additive goes beyond gut health with dual-action functionality to help support immune function and digestive health. SmartCare fermentate supports calf immunity, health, and performance by:
- Promoting a healthy balance of the gastrointestinal microbiota, which maximizes production of VFA (volatile fatty acid), including butyrate;
- Providing high levels of antioxidants, which promotes a balanced immune system; and
- Optimizing rumen and intestinal morphology, which supports robust digestive health and calf performance.
Improved gastrointestinal health translates into better performing calves that are more capable of reaching their full genetic potential.
Research shows Diamond V’s Calf Program, including SmartCare feed additive supports:
- Calf immunity and overall health
- Rumen and intestinal development
- Starter intake
- Feed efficiency
- Body weight gain
SmartCare feed addiitve is heat and pressure stable under conditions normally found in feed manufacturing.
