Renco Vegetable Rennet (“vege” rennet) may assist calf rearers to minimise or avoid scours in their calves. Research indicates that calves at birth have varying levels of the digestive enzymes contained in RENCO rennet and these can take time to develop. If levels are low, the milk will be slow to form a clot in the stomach. This leaves the pH of the stomach elevated - a more suitable environment for the growth of scour producing microorganisms.

Many farmers supplement their newborn and young calves with a coagulant such as Renco Vegetable Rennet to assist and speed up milk coagulation in the stomach.

Anecdotal evidence indicates that Renco Vegetable Rennet is very effective.

Some dose each calf individually with the recommended dose. Others deliver the required dosage of vege rennet to the milk whilst the calves are sucking. It should be noted the rennet will clot warm milk quickly and this needs to be considered when working out how best to administer it. The action of the milk clotting enzymes in cold milk is slower.

You can purchase direct from RENCO New Zealand at wholesale prices and 1L can deliver 500 doses.
