Biopect is an all-natural anti-scour prebiotic product which can be used as an aid in the prevention of scours in calves, lambs, kids, foals and piglets. Or, as a supplement for young animals with nutritional scours or mild diarrhoea.

  • For maintaining gut health in calves, lambs, kids, foals and piglets

  • Contains plant fibres, glucose and electrolytes

  • Non-medicated

  • No need to remove milk or milk replacer from diet during treatment

  • Available in 2.5kg, 5kg and 25kg

It is a non-medicated scours treatment and does not contain antibiotics*.

Biopect is ideal for feeding to calves and other young stock to encourage and maintain good gut health – promoting a healthy digestive tract and immune system.

Easy to administer, Biopect can be fed in milk, milk replacer or in water. Feed to young animals (calves, lambs, kids, foals or piglets) after periods of risk, such as stress from:

  • transportation and a new environment

  • change in diet

  • adverse weather conditions

  • dirty housing

For young animals with nutritional scours or mild diarrhoea, Biopect can be used as a supplement to provide an energy boost.

How does Biopect work?

Biopect contains electrolytes, energy and pectins:

Pectins and other fibres from dried fruit and pulp form a protective gel-like layer in the intestines

Electrolytes may provide essential mineral salts

Glucose provides energy and aids in the absorption of electrolytes.
