Energan® Pansenstarter

Complementary feed for calves, cattle, sheep and goats

Energan® Pansenstarter is an easy to administer complementary feed for ruminants (calves, cattle, sheep and goats).

Its ingredients are designed to stimulate appetite, the ruminal flora, rumination and to supply energy. Ruminal activity is often impacted by early post-partum disease and changes in nutrition. Energan® Pansenstarter helps to reboost ruminal functions. As such, it is ideal to use if signs of anorexia or decreased rumen activity are observed. Alternatively it can be used preventatively when animals are suspected to be at risk of any condition that may impair appetite and feed intake (such as dystocia, lameness or surgery). Administration is simple, 1 cartridge daily for 2 to 4 days for adult cattle, half of a cartridge daily for 2 to 4 days for calves and small ruminants.
