As snow and ice have covered most of the southern plains states, the safety of our livestock comes at a new risk as they are being cooped up in our warm barns to protect them from the elements. From a stock show standpoint, target shows are just around the corner that will bring the spring show season to an end. All of the hard work and progress you have made in your animal throughout the past months would be moot if they were the victim of a respiratory illness that set their health back just weeks before the show.
On the other side of the coin, the age group of animals that are the most subject to the effects of ammonia in the air and respiratory illness are the younger livestock that are being purchased all over the country for next year's show season. To prevent these setbacks in your herd, protocols can be taken that will minimize your vet bill and keep your livestock competitive in the show ring.Flextrans’s Scizyme is a great way to maintain safe air quality in your barns. By using Scizyme during times when all of your livestock are being bedded in closed barns, you can guarantee an all natural and safe form of protection from short term illness. However, by using this product throughout the year, you can be sure that your animal’s respiratory system is always in a healthy state, eradicating any underlying respiratory issues or high ammonia levels.
