An immediate guaranteed dose of immunity against E. coli and coronavirus infections, in a bolus or single-dose gel tube.

Jump straight to antibody protection while removing reliance on the common variable vaccine response of dam- and calf-level vaccines. One dose, a single bolus or gel tube, administered at birth gives each calf a guaranteed level of protection from E. coli and coronavirus infections.
