Ralco Launches Microfused® EO for Beef and Dairy

New Product Offers Beef and Dairy Producers with Affordable Natural Option

Marshall, MN —  Sept. 11, 2017 — Strong Animals®, a brand of Ralco, announced today that it has launched a new product, Microfused® EO 100 Mini Pellet. The natural feed additive for cattle is fed daily to stimulate appetite and water consumption while strengthening immunity and reducing the effects of oxidative stress. The product can also be pulse fed and does not require a Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) because it is formulated with patent-pending natural Strong Animals® technology.

The feed additive was designed as a cost-effective everyday feeding solution to maintain overall health and performance of cattle. Ralco’s Beef Technical Lead Dennis Dieterich said Microfused® EO 100 Mini Pellet is a flexible tool that promotes the health and performance of feedlot cattle.

“As more producers contend with VFDs, the search has been on for a product that can help overcome challenges in the feedlot without the paperwork and hassle. Microfused® EO 100 Mini Pellet is the answer because it is a highly effective product that allows producers to raise cattle the way they have always raised cattle. The feedlots that have implemented this product see cattle maintain appetite, growth rate and a high health status. Feedlots are pulling fewer cattle, which reduces treatment costs,” Dieterich said.

In addition to the Microfused® EO 100 Mini Pellet, Strong Animals® also offers Fight Strong® for Cattle which is designed to be used during times of intense stress. Fight Strong® for Cattle is a natural feed additive typically fed for 28 days that gets cattle eating and boosts immunity. It helps cattle overcome production stress, handling, poor appetite and a suppressed immune system. Both products are powered by exclusive Microfused® Essential Oils technology. The advanced technology greatly reduces essential oil droplet size to enhance contact with undesirable microbes. The patent-pending technology overcomes natural forces that keep oil droplets from their primary targets which promotes contact for maximum effectiveness.

“Microfused® Essential Oils technology is only available from Strong Animals and it’s what makes our products so powerful. We are sought out by livestock producers throughout the world for our essential oil technology. It has been exciting to see this technology come to life in feedlots to promote the health and performance of cattle while helping producers overcome the challenge of working with VFDs,” Dieterich said.

The Microfused® EO Mini Pellet can be pulse fed on a monthly basis. It can also be fed before revaccinating and during the last 60-100 days of production. Both Microfused® EO 100 Mini Pellet and Fight Strong® for Cattle are available through numerous animal health distributors and feed mills.

Strong Animals is a brand of Ralco, a third-generation, family-owned multinational company with distribution in more than 20 countries.
