A Personal Best: Pumpkins & Calves


Congratulations to the Seamons Family. We shared an update on their giant pumpkin growing venture here.

Pictured above is their new personal best, a giant pumpkin weighing in at 1,448lbs - Grown with and crediting Calf Gold™ 3E for this personal best.

In calves, these Smartbacteria strains are very beneficial in calf care for establishing a functioning rumen and inhibiting pathogen growth:

           - A4000h™ & A2020™ produce potent compounds called bacteriocins, which research shows inhibit and kill pathogens.

           - B5000h™, B5005h™, and B5150h™ help reduce the growth of pathogens. Research finds these unique Smartbacteria showed inhibition when surveyed against bacterial isolates in the pathogen library with reductions of: 89% on Clostridium, 100% on E. coli, and 99% on Salmonella.

Microbiology plays an intricate role in health as the foundation to life.

All is interconnected.
