Gen-III Lyte High Performance Generation III Electrolyte Nutrient Product for dehydrated / scoured calves
Young calves can not digest most starches or dextrose polymers, so the challenge was to find a polymer with a chain length long enough to reduce osmotic pressure and one that calves could digest.
Gen-III Lyte™ is a unique "Generation III" electrolyte that "pushes" water from the intestine into the blood to re-hydrate calves fast!
- Re-hydration is a two-step process: 1) balance osmotic pressure; 2) absorb water.
- Most electrolytes actually "pull" water from the blood into the intestine because most electrolytes have a very high osmotic pressure. In severely dehydrated calves, this is often fatal because water moves from the blood into the intestine to balance osmotic pressure before absorption can occur.
Gen-III™ is made with unique, low-osmotic pressure formula that actually "pushes" water from the intestine into the blood within seconds! Once osmotic pressure is balanced, absorption continues to deliver vital fluids and electrolyte nutrients to the calf. Gen-III Lyte™ has multiple sources of metabolizable bases without sodium bicarbonate - which means you can continue to feed milk or milk replacer without concern of interference.
Calves drink it fast!
Available in 3.75 lb. bucket (12 doses) or 10 lb. bucket (32 doses).
Feeding Directions: Feed 2 quarts (4 lb) of solution per calf 2-3 times daily between milk feedings using esophageal feeder if needed. Gen_III ORS does not interfere with milk digestion. Continue feeding milk or milk replacer when using this product.
