When Should I Start Using Sure Champ?

Recently, we’ve had a lot of people asking when they should start using Sure Champ. The answer is quite simple – as soon as your livestock go onto feed or as soon as you get them home after purchase. Transitioning animals onto a grain diet or the arrival of livestock to their new home can be stressful. Amaferm, found in Sure Champ and Vita Charge, helps improve digestive health and stimulates appetite especially in stressful situations. By including Sure Champ in your ration from the beginning you can make sure your livestock are on the right path of increased appetite, more bloom and freshness and improved digestive health. As with any supplement you will need to slowly introduce Sure Champ into the diet and work up to the recommended .25-.5 lb. or 1 lb. a day feeding, depending on the species.

We even have people that use Sure Champ in their Creep Feed.

A follow up question is how long should I use Sure Champ? Since Sure Champ is a natural product, it should be used throughout the entire feeding period. As with most supplements it is important to feed for a minimum of 30 days to see full results. For those that are showing sheep, goats or heifers you may consider transitioning your females onto one of our VitaFerm minerals, after your show season is complete, to ensure you maximize reproductive performance of your livestock.

  1. Hi I am currently feeding sunglo calf concentrate to my show steers to be finished at the end of July. Can I still feed sure champ along with this, or will it make the ration too “hot”? thanks for your time.

    1. Heidi, if you are feeding the Sunglo concentrate according to recommendations along with corn grain and 3-4 lbs 7% grass hay to a 900-1000 lb steer, then your diet currently is approximately 13.7% CP and 0.61 mcal/lb of NEg on a dry matter basis. Adding 1 lb of Sure Champ will increase protein to approximately 14.1% CP and NEg will stay the same. For a fast-growing young animal it will not make the diet too hot for protein, and energy will stay the same.
