First Defense®

First Defense® is the only USDA accredited, colostrum derived, scours preventative providing Immediate Immunity™ against both E. coli and coronavirus (two main causes of neonatal scours).  Scours is the primary cause of death in newborn calves.  Calves that survive scours are highly susceptible to respiratory and other secondary diseases along with stunted growth and production losses.  Scours is a serious economic drain for both the dairy and beef industry.

Purified Nisin Intramammary Treatment

ImmuCell is nearing FDA approval of an intramammary treatment for subclinical mastitis.  Mastitis is the most costly and common disease affecting the dairy Industry   inflicting a drain in profits of approximately $2 billion each year.  This tool significantly differs from traditional antibiotics, will not require a milk discard or meat withhold, and will allow for economically justified treatment of mastitis prior to seeing clinical signs.

What people are saying about First Defense®

“When first approached about using First Defense® I wasn’t quite sure about it but, it’s a simple easy way as far as prevention for scours. It’s something we can give day old, immediately and see the benefits right away.”

“The savings are dramatic, we were using egg antibodies for about two years. We still had a scour percentage morbidity of about 13.7% and we had a mortality rate of 4.8%. We swapped out the egg antibodies for First Defense® and within the first 90 days our scour rate dropped to 7% and our death loss on the first group of 90 day calves was 0.89%. The labor costs are lower. Everything runs smoother. It’s just invaluable.”
