I think that this product would work well on many farms however the farms in the U.S.A. have been over sold on products like Rumensin and unfortunatly know how to treat symptoms but have long way to go in learning how to eliminate the need to treat animals by keeping them healthy. I keep trying to tell them that " IT"S NOT ROCKET SCIENCE BUT IT IS ANIMAL SCIENCE!!!

Basically flavanoids, alkaloids identified, isolated, extracted and blend to form a specific formula and we have couple of them for DAIRY, POULTRY, AQUA and the results are Superb.
'se, Liver function and GI micro flora are balanced enabling feed, fodder consumed to be totally metabolized resulting in Natural immunity, resistance, expelling adult round worms, increased productivity, better quality milk, flesh, naturally maintains heat cycle, pregnancy rates are better and normal delivery of healthy calves. This formula is cost effective, safe and more intangible benefits faster.
