Epic II CL in the Control of Calf Diarrhea  
    To control calf diarrhea, it appears that the environment of the
    digestive tract seem to contribute to the severity of the diarrhea that
    is present.

    The presence of high levels of ammonia in the digestive tract seem to
    have a profound effect on the appearance of diarrhea. High levels of
    quality protein and non-protein nitrogen lead to this situation. The
    intestinal integrity is greatly enhanced and disease resistance is
    strengthened when high ammonia levels are controlled. Healthier
    digestive tract tissue acts as a positive barrier to viruses, bacteria and
    toxins that produce lethal disease conditions.

    One of the main reasons to use Epic II CL is the promotion of a healthy
    digestive tract, rendering disease less of a factor in a healthy growing
    calf.

    The overall results of less diarrhea, faster growth, better feed intake
    and utilization, less labor and drug expense in raising quality calves
    are all realized. In contrast, high ammonia levels in the digestive tract
    inhibit the fermentation of feed stuffs and contribute to unthrifty
    calves.
