If I am Using the Vita Charge Stress Tub, Do I Still Need Sure Champ?

Share this:

One of the questions we get asked the most from our cattle customers is if they still needed to be top dressing with Sure Champ Cattle if they were using the Vita Charge Stress Tub with MOS. Kevin Glaubius, BioZyme Director of Nutrition says the answer is YES!

These two products have two different purposes. Sure Champ has a long-standing use as a protein, vitamin and mineral supplement with the Amaferm advantage and is the basis for many successful feeding programs across the country. Sure Champ gives more bloom, helps cattle utilize their feed more efficiently and stimulates appetite. When it comes to the stress tub, showmen have historically found that show cattle have benefited even further from utilizing Vita Charge in addition to Sure Champ.

The Vita Charge Stress Tub is a more convenient way to deliver a daily dose of Vita Charge when compared to a paste, drench, or gel cap to give them that extra edge in animal performance. Also, the Vita Charge Stress Tub contains MOS. MOS is like a sponge that sits in the digestive system and attracts negative bacteria that can make your cattle sick. The MOS then traps that bacteria and expels it out the back end, thus keeping your animal healthy. Adding Vita Charge to your feeding regimen is especially important during times of stress like weaning, extreme temperatures or traveling to shows. Both Sure Champ and Vita Charge do contain the Amaferm advantage, but due to the response curve with Amaferm the expectation is added performance when the two products are fed together in a feeding program.
