One of the main causes of stress in calves is due to sickness. Packed with B Vitamins, yeast, enzymes, probiotics, and prebiotics, Riomax® stress tubs build up the immune system and fight off calf sickness from the inside out. 

Another cause of calf stress is obviously from being separated from its mother. Lick tubs are a great tool to combat this. Put the tubs out prior to weaning for the calves to get accustomed to, and then put them in the weaning pens once the calf is weaned. Having a familiar object helps reduce some of that stress for the calf.

Yes! The Riomax® stress tub contains a complete 100% protected key trace mineral pack. This means you don't have to supplement any extra mineral with the tub.

Furthermore, by using only 100% protected rumen-bypass minerals, we ensure those calves are getting mineral where it needs to go - the bloodstream. From there, it can build the calf's immune system and aid growth and gain.

For best results, we recommend having the stress tub available to the calves for as long as possible BEFORE weaning, so they can become familiar with the product. 

Then, tubs should be placed in weaning pens as well after the calves are weaned. Having the tub there before and after weaning allows for a familiar object in the calf's life.

It also promotes licking action and stimulates appetite, so your calves can get up to the bunk faster and start gaining!

"Last year I was treating 5-6 calves per day for scours... I ended up with a $5,000 vet and medicine bill and I figure my calves weighed 25-50 lbs lighter at weaning due to the stress of the sickness. This year on Riomax I treated 3 or 4 total and only because we had a cold snap in April and the scours never spread..."

“Sure like how these tubs worked on the calves coming out of the mountains. Had the calves on the tubs when they were close to home in the spring after calving, and then this fall put those tubs in the pens of weaned calves. It took about 10 seconds for the calves to remember what they were! They are licking them steady now and going into feed good!"
