Five Jackpot Show Essentials to Keep Livestock on Feed and Water

Winter and spring are exciting times of the year for livestock exhibitors across the country. It’s time to break out the new show prospects and hit the road to jackpot shows. Don’t let those hours of hard work and days of preparation at home all be for nothing. The combination of hauling, changes in environment and climate and stress can cause your animals to go off feed and water, and therefore leave them looking a little rung out – something no one wants to deal with at a show. 

Fortunately, BioZyme® Inc., makers of Sure Champ® and Vita Charge® products, realized early on that 70% of the animal’s immune response starts in the digestive system. Livestock with a healthy gut will continue to eat and drink and perform, which is why Sure Champ and Vita Charge products are powered by AO-Biotics® Amaferm®, a prebiotic research-proven to enhance digestibility. 

Being proactive with your nutrition program is the best way to keep your animals healthy, eating, drinking and performing. Sure Champ is line a of products that supports the health and well-being of show livestock. Using Sure Champ in the barn daily and on the show road is a great way to help you and your animals #PreptoWin. Vita Charge offers rapid resilience through a line of fast-acting, multi-specie livestock products for support before, during and after stressful times. Most products can be used on all species, but always read and follow label directions. Let’s look at five products that are ideal for your livestock as you prepare for winter and spring jackpot shows. 

Sure Champ® Spark® is a pelleted, daily supplement for show livestock designed to support digestive health and restore appetite. It contains MOS, which helps normalize gut microflora and support the immune system. Other key ingredients include biotin and zinc to support hoof health, hair coat and performance. 

🟣 Sure Champ® Cattle is a pelleted, daily supplement with protein, vitamins and minerals for show livestock designed to support performance. It stimulates a consistent appetite while ensuring show cattle receive adequate vitamins and minerals. 

💧 Vita Charge® Liquid Boost® is a liquid for all livestock designed to provide immediate support to the animal’s digestive and immune systems. It also contains MOS to help normalize gut microflora and support the immune system, as well as flavoring to help drive intake of feed or water. We suggest introducing Vita Charge Liquid Boost to your livestock a few days prior to leaving home for a show so they are used to the flavor, and they make a smooth transition to it at the show. 

🟠 Vita Charge® Cattle Drench is a drench for cattle designed to support digestive health before, during and after challenges and now comes in a convenient 32-ounce size for livestock shows. In addition to Amaferm and MOS, it contains enzymes to generate a more rapid digestive response. 

⚡️ Vita Charge® Gel is a gel for all livestock designed to provide immediate support to the animal’s digestive and immune systems. This fast-acting product supports appetite and hydration and contains both Amaferm and MOS. The Vita Charge Gel comes in two sizes – 60 mL and 300 mL. 

Regardless of the species you show, make sure as you #PreptoWin, your animals don’t go off feed and water just in time for the show. Doing the work during the week will help you get the results you are looking for at the shows on the weekend. Keep them eating and drinking with products powered by Amaferm. A healthy gut makes a happy animal.
