MilkGuard Plus Testimonial

MilkGuard Plus Testimonial

Ballyhaunis Farmer, John Cunnane, sees reduced nutrition scour and improved weight gain using MilkGuard Plus.

John Cunnane farms 160 acres, with his son in law Kevin Niland in Cashels, Aughamore, Ballyhaunis, Co. Mayo.  John and Kevin have 60 pure breed Holsteins which they milk all year round.


John calves down 40% in Autumn and a further 60% in Spring of which he holds onto 10-15% for his replacement heifers.


In the past John has had persistent problems with calves scouring around day 5 or 6 and had been using scour powders to help the calves’ recovery.  John moved onto MilkGuard Plus 2 years ago when Kevin Conroy, Inform Nutrition and Martin Boland, Aurivo FCS called on farm.


MilkGuard Plus is a unique blend of vitamins and minerals with the proven whole milk and milk replacer additive formulation with the added benefit of the trademarked C-Guard. C-Guard is a blend of essential oils; Oregano, Garlic and Rosemary, which are widely known for their beneficial health properties. C-Guard’s unique blend of natural organic acids improves the digestibility of milks so there are more nutrients available for growth.


John has found that it dramatically reduced his calves scouring problems. John notices the reduced work involved with his calves around this time is a great bonus for his daily workload.  John feeds MilkGuard Plus as a prevention support from 0-28 days in both Autumn and Spring calving, by which time his experience has taught him that he will need over his nutritional scour, cryto and coccidiosis cycles on his farm.


Inform Nutrition’s Kevin Conroy added, “Two years ago, John took was one of the first to take MilkGuard Plus onboard. To our delight it John has seen a dramatic decrease with calf health issues. This is the feedback we have had from a lot of farmers who are using MilkGuard Plus in the region and it is great to get out on farm see first-hand the results on John’s farm”
