We are a backgrounding feedlot that feeds a low energy diet. We grow our calves and prepare them for the finishing lot and we do not use implants.
To date we have started approximately 3,900 – 450-600 weight, feeder cattle on Boviglo versus our traditional method of Draxxin, Vitamin A, D and Muse injections.
Upon arrival of calves, we now use 5 ml of Boviglo oral, along with our vaccine program and Ivomec.
Our success rate on this program has met our expectations. The cattle look much more alert and our pull rate has been 6 to 8% which we think is quite acceptable. When we do pull cattle that need an antibiotic, we use an antibiotic plus 12 ml of Boviglo and our response to antibiotics in conjunction with Boviglo has worked extremely well. We have had as good as no retreats. And after treatment, calves are very quick to respond and get back on feed.
Our average daily gain has improved to .2 to .3 pounds/day with 6 to 8% less feed intake over the 70 day trial. We have also noticed that our feeders are much more content and easier to work with. We believe that is due to the level of magnesium in this supplement.
These Cattle were received in mid January to mid April.

“I bought Eberglo last week. AMAZING! I cannot believe it! I’ve used probiotics before but I’ve never had results like this! Thanks to Eberglo! So glad you’re selling it. I don’t have to run to the city or order it. What it has helped with the most for me is Thrush. My pony and I have been battling thrush in her feet for years!! Last winter I fed haylage and her feet looked great! This got me thinking about the benefits of fermented feeds. I can’t feed silage in the summer, then I heard about Eberglo. Thrush was back this spring. I started using Eberglo and it’s gone! She’s standing nice and looks comfortable. My horse ended up with thrush too after being sick twice and needing antibiotics. Her frogs are Thrush free now too!”
“Having constant trouble with the health of our Bison when we bring them into the feedlot, we were quite open to the idea of feeding Boviglo, even though there were no trials done on Bison so far. The trials done in the feedlot industry were sufficient enough as Bison are very similar to cattle. What we have found in the Bison is that it gives them the boost in immunity and the strength to fight off disease in high stress conditions. To date we have started three groups on Boviglo and have had virtually no health issues. We have not seen signs of Mycoplasma. We have also fed some orphan calves this spring and with Boviglo in their milk, they are doing very well.”

“We were having issues with our calves this spring and our traditional method was a shot of Liquamycin and Vitamin A, D. We were having problems with our calves scouring, weak calves, etc., then we started using Boviglo instead of the injections. We have had tremendous results and have treated some calves for scours and Boviglo has cured all of our cases.”

“I love this product. All calves get it at birth- they just respond so much faster to get up and suck. The few that I have seen start to get scours, I give them 5ml, two days in a row and it is amazing how fast they respond. I have only been using this for 2 weeks. Thanks Harold!”

Cali Before Eberglo
“Our tiny 2 1/2 yr old Boxer weighed 33lbs mid-January. By mid-March, she was down to 31lbs. Every rib, her spine and hip bones showed. She slept 23 hrs a day, didn’t play and only ate every other day, maybe, and vomitted often. On March 22nd she was diagnosed with kidney disease. Our vet said, “If lucky, she will have 3 good months.” We switched her to a Renal diet and started her on 1 ml twice a day of Eberglo. She started eating right away and within 3 days started to perk up and play. We started to see her ribs cover and get more and more energy. Our Cali is back.
On May 9th she went in for her shots and had not only gained her weight back, but added another pound. Our vet was surprised and we are so pumped!
Thank you to Harold Unrau for telling us about Eberglo.”
