Visit Provita at Fintona Farm Machinery Show 2018


With lambing and calving season now starting to kick off, there are many problems which can arise particularly in the damp and colder weather. Provita has a full range of products to help counteract the most common difficulties which can occur during this time of year.


Diarrhoea (scours) is the most common disease problem in the young unweaned calf. It is estimated that it affects in varying degrees over a third of all calves during their rearing period and is responsible for about half of all British calf deaths (MDC & NADIS).


Provita Protect POM-VPS is an oral supplement providing high-level, multi-strain probiotic bacteria to prevent diarrhoea in new born calves.  It is the only probiotic which is medicinally licensed for the prevention of calf scour. It has been clinically proven to reduce calf scour by 83%. It should be given to new born calves at birth, bought-in calves, after digestive upsets or after antibiotic therapy.


Provita Protect suspension supplies 10 billion unique triple strain probiotic bacteria that rapidly colonise the sterile gut of the new born calf. These unique probiotic bacteria prevent harmful pathogens such as E Coli from attaching to the gut wall through competitive exclusion. The probiotic bacteria also produce lactic acid therefore lowering the pH in the gut further inhibiting harmful pathogens. The combination of more bacteria and lower pH also improves digestion as demonstrated by a 31% increase in growth rates in clinical trials.


The Provita Response range for calves provides colostrum, probiotic bacteria, egg powder and vitamins to give them an energy boost. This will improve gut condition, digestion and growth rates. It will also help to counteract common deficiencies in new born calves.


Provita WD Powder Ruminant is a liquid dispersible probiotic to aid the maintenance of a healthy gut flora.


Provita has been manufacturing colostrum for lambs and calves for over 25 years, with thousands of farmers having trusted our brand to produce excellent results.


Our original tried and trusted formulation is based on quality ingredients that the new born needs at birth, and its ease of use. The combination of natural dried colostrum, egg powder, probiotics, vitamins, energy and protein source has ensured outstanding results year after year.


There are three very different types of ingredient within Provita Colostrum which together provide the maximum survival rates in new born animals. The provision of double the energythan other brands, gives an instant and sustained energy boost meaning the new born animal gets up much quicker to get its mothers colostrum. The benefits from natural bovine colostrum and egg powder provide immediate local benefits to neutralise microorganisms. The high level of probiotics then provides a second layer of immediate benefit and long term extended benefit. This combination produces excellent survival and thrift in new born animals.


Provita Jump Start is a nutritional supplement, specifically developed to provide newborn lambs with beneficial sources of immediately available and slow release energy. It is high in energy, egg powder and minerals and vitamins to boost newborn lamb and get them up and going quickly. Jump Start counteracts common nutritional deficiencies giving lambs the best possible start in life.
