Welcome to Brit Milk

Introducing the innovative new calf supplement from Britmilk.

Calf Defender

The most difficult stage in rearing cales is in the first week to ten days in this period many scour related problems can blight a calves chances of survival CALF DEFENDER aims to support and protect calves duing this period.

Calf Defender is a 4 in 1 supplement for calves in the first few days of life.

Problems of scour which occur in the first few days of life are generally related to Cryptosporidium, Rota-virus,Corona virus, E coli, and other gram negative bacteria.

Calf Defender contains functional proteins which line the gut of the calf and help prevent bad organisms (including viruses) from attaching to the gut lining and causing damage. To control the effects of Cryptosporidium Calf Defender also contains Bio-Cox which is a blend of natural plant extracts and essential oils to help restrict the multiplication of the cryptosporidium oocytes responsible for causing the disease.

Calf Defender contains a massive level of probiotic (billions) of good bacteria to completely dominate the gut flora and maintain a health balance of good bacteria over bad. It also contains a prebiotic (MOS manna oligosaccharides) which are specific sugar molecules which attach to bad bacteria and take them out of the gut



Britmilk was privileged to be invited to the grand opening of Dugdale Nutrition’s new Blending plant at Clitheroe Lancashire last week. Over 500 farmers attended the opening in the superb facility which will produce 50,000 tonnes of feed per year.

Adam Henson from country file opened the plant with a very upbeat presentation about the future of agriculture and the food production industry and how the investment by Mathew Dugdale shows the commitment to and the confidence in British agriculture in general and the future for their customers in particular.

Thanks to Dugdale Nutrition for inviting us it was an excellent event and we were please to be a part of it.
