Key Information for Success:
A simple way to understand supplements and nutrients: “If it is not water soluble, it is not available.” This is key for any nutrient absorption across membrane barriers. Solid feeds can only reach optimized nutritional absorption rates when the animal’s stomach acids, biology, and body pH are in perfect harmony and at proper levels. An imbalanced digestive and immune system will cause higher levels of undigested feeds, resulting in low feed conversions. In addition to the above, one of the most significant issues plaguing digestion in animals today is intestinal bio-film, which directly inhibits proper absorption of nutrients.
Animal pH Levels
A general definition of ‘pH’ is potential hydrogen. However, a more scientific and accurate understanding is that pH stands for ionic resistance. The lower the pH, the lower the resistance, and the higher the pH, the higher the resistance. Too little or too many results in the undigested feed. Understanding pH is critical to animal health and productivity. In our research, the studies of many reputable professionals have indicated the perfect pH level in saliva and urine is 6.4. Using this knowledge we have achieved phenomenal results with increased feed conversions. The animal’s saliva is a direct mirror image of the liver bile (enzyme manufacturer). The pH level of urine is a mirror image of the processed or outgoing nutritional pH value. Both these sources should match a 6.4 pH. This is where Blue Gold™ Grand Champion excels, in that is drives the pH to 6.4.
The measure of pH is unique; 3/10ths is a huge difference. For example, a pH of 6.1 is 300% lower than 6.4. A pH of 7.4 is 1000% higher than 6.4. A pH level below 6.4 is a sign that macronutrients are missing in the feed intake, while a pH above 6.4 is a sign that micronutrients are missing in the feed intake. A 6.4 pH resistance is your optimal nutritional balanced zone.
When the pH is not balanced, animals will eat anything they can wherein they detect these missing nutrients. You can now understand why animals can be caught chewing on everything. They are after the nutrients, because their improper resistance (pH) levels are not allowing them to absorb all the nutrients they need, or it is missing from their feed intake. One example is discovering your animal chewing on lumber. We have tested animals chewing on treated lumber, only to determine they were copper deficient! (Treated lumber has a lot of copper). Have you ever witnessed a newborn calf instantly begin licking the dirt after birth? They are after the minerals because they are already in a deficient state because the mother is deficient as well. This constant chewing headache disappears, in our experience, when the animal’s nutrient levels are addressed.
Water is the most important element on earth but is said by many scientists to be the least understood. If your water pH is off by 1000% (7.4 vs. 6.4), this means the overall pH level of the animal will be significantly affected and hinder the ability to achieve the proper resistance (pH) of 6.4. When your animal’s drinking water source is properly adjusted, the proper ionic resistance can be achieved much more easily allowing the animal’s digestion to maximize feed digestion and absorption. We have 100% non-caustic pH adjusting solutions that are not harmful to animals if you are in need of a cost-effective solution to modify the resistance (pH) of your drinking water. We also have mechanical plumbing equipment which can ionically discharge/reset your water source if it is discovered to have too many foreign elements. This equipment results in a ‘wetter’ water, which also improves water absorption. The most important factor is that City Water sources should be avoided at all costs, as the chemicals used to ‘purify’ the water, negatively affect ionic digestion efficiency in an extreme way. Spring or well water sources are optimal. Alternatively, for small water consumption levels by pets, you can use distilled water.
In these small environments with distilled water, we have seen great success with adding 1 Tbsp. of organic apple cider vinegar to 1 gallon of distilled water, then add the Blue Gold™ Grand Champion – our pets love this recipe very much. Animal cellular hydration is a primary key to health. A hydrated cell will carry more electrical energy (Milhouse units) than a dehydrated cell. This is one reason why you will see your animal's water consumption go up when they are on the Blue Gold™ Grand Champion. Common chemicals found in city water: Hydroflurosallicic acid, Lead, Arsenic, Chlorine, Chloramine, Fluoride, Perchlorate(s), PCB’s, MtBE… the list goes on. We challenge you to research these for yourself to honestly see how your water source choice truly matters.
Blue Gold™ Grand Champion is safe for all animal gestation periods, nursing mothers, nursing newborns, weaned animals, and studs, old and young animals in any environment. Always have clean environments and use clean equipment. Always use a clean water source (not city water) with Blue Gold™ Grand Champion for results.
Gut health is essential for nutrient uptake, the efficiency of which is directly related to performance and profitability in dairy and other animal productions. Healthy animals will eat more and drink more to produce more efficiently, ensuring they are performing at their maximum potential. Blue Gold™ Grand Champion focuses on supporting animal performance by promoting good bacteria, deterring bad bacteria, remediating viruses and diseases, building and boosting natural defenses, and maximizing growth and efficiency.
Safeguarding your animal starts with the quality of your feed and the management of bacterial growth in your facility, in your feed and water, and the good bacteria sporulation in your animals. Effective bacteria management is about addressing all the issues as one challenge. Blue Gold™ is specifically designed to address these issues and help safeguard the health of your facility and equipment, and your animals. Blue Gold™ Grand Champion is intended to deter the growth of harmful bacteria, and promote the growth of good bacteria. Safe facilities and healthy animals begin with Blue Gold™.
As feed costs represent the most significant input for farmers, often accounting up to 70 percent of production costs, it is essential to make sure each bite of feed is digested efficiently! Blue Gold™ Grand Champion helps to achieve efficient feed digestion through increased intestinal health and resistance (pH) balance. Blue Gold™ is a new technology which works naturally and synergistically with your animal’s digestive and immune system to stabilize rumen and/or digestive enzymes and bacteria, resistance (pH), maximize nutrient absorption, and therefore reduce the overall cost of your feed.
It is widely recognized that reduced fertility in animals is one of the most critical factors affecting a producer's profitability. The nutritional management of animals has a direct influence on fertility performance, particularly in lactation. Often, fertility is an issue not focused on until the moment it is needed, but in reality, fertility is a process that starts with managing the quality of the embryo. Blue Gold™ Grand Champion has been tested and proven to increase embryo counts significantly.
Common Problems Ruminant
and Non-Ruminant Animals:
A healthy animal should expel the placenta within 24 hours, and failing to do so can cause serious health issues. This is generally a sign of poor immune functions, and coupled with decaying placenta usually renders an animal infertile. This is not good. Selenium and Calcium have been proven to remediate this issue and restore proper muscle contractions in the animal. Blue Gold™ Grand Champion contains both these nutrients at nano-sized levels. With proper nutrient absorption, the animal’s muscular and immune functions are elevated to proper levels, allowing your animal’s natural functions to succeed. Through improved health and improved nutrition with Blue Gold™, this issue is quickly addressed.
Protein Supply During Gestation
Microbial protein is the most efficient source of protein for animal’s as its amino acid profile is very similar to that of milk. By promoting proper rumen or digestive microbial levels, and ensuring proper non-protein nitrogen (NPN) uptake, as well as amino acids and energy, milk production goes through the roof! It is essential to ensure a consistent daily supply of NPN, and a failing digestive system cannot absorb this vital nutrient from the feed. By correcting the digestive bio-film health, rumen and/or digestive function is optimized allowing for maximized health, fertility and performance.
By addressing rumen health and microbial activity, ruminant animals will be able to increase feed intake and improve feed conversion efficiency. The result is more profits. Rumen resistance (pH) is also a significant and essential factor for good rumen health. The normal range for rumen health is 6.0 to 6.8 pH. When the pH level drops below this, acidosis occurs, and the rumen stops contracting, and the appetite drops off. Many factors affect the resistance (pH) level, such as feed and water resistance (pH) levels. When rumen health and resistance (pH) levels drop, serious issues can abound - the animals become more susceptible to health issues such as laminitis and mycotoxicosis. Blue Gold™ Grand Champion not only corrects resistance (pH) imbalances but promotes a proper resistance (pH) of 6.4 for optimized feed conversion. Additionally, it can remediate these health issues!
It has been said before, and we seek to hammer it home. Gut stability is critical for raising profitable animals. Required from birth onward, attentive care and support of your animal’s gut is needed to maintain healthy microflora in their intestinal tract. Optimum digestive function is achieved when nutrients supplied do not counteract with stomach resistance (pH) and microbe levels. Digestive energy is the driver of digestion activity, and cannot occur if bio-film, resistance (pH) imbalances, and immune functions are below par. Blue Gold™ Grand Champion promotes healthy microbial levels, particularly "fiber digesters," which are responsible for utilizing non-protein nitrogen. Digestive health cannot be supported and cared for too much. It is the essential factor of any farm.
Feed is the most significant single production expense on animal farms. Efficient conversion of grown or purchased feed nutrients directly affects your profit margins. Good feed conversion is not only economically essential but is also a good indicator of proper nutritional management on your farm. Forage makes up the significant portion of ruminant and many non-ruminant diets. During the conversion of fresh forage to silage, enzymatic breakdown of proteins occurs, leading to a massive loss of true protein (amino acids). Numerous studies have found that feeding ruminant’s silage with a higher true protein content increases milk production and live weight gain, even though Crude Protein numbers were similar to silage with low true protein levels. Not only does addressing rumen health increase conversion, but good feed choices can make a massive difference to your profits. If you grow your own forage, our Blue Gold™ Plant System can significantly increase the true protein of your forage for less cost than to purchase your own, while also producing astronomical RFV and TDN levels.
Environmental and weather conditions can cause stress to your herd. This is not new information. We have covered nutrient issues quite well, which cause stress when at improper levels. Another major stress factor is heat and dehydration. Carbon is the governor of water absorption. Even though your animals are drinking their water, their bodies can only hold so much. Carbon is the governing factor that dictates how much water your animals can store. Carbon is in every cell of the body (along with iodine). One pound of Carbon can absorb up to 4 pounds of water. By addressing the Carbon levels of your animals through Blue Gold™ Grand Champion, a water supplement, proper carbon levels are achieved allowing your animals to consume proper amounts of water and hold it more efficiently. Just like a healthy animal would not drink itself to death, a carbon imbalanced animal will not drink more than it can hold. This increase in water consumption allows for the animal’s system to more readily handle heat conditions while eliminating dehydration.
Mastitis is an inflammatory reaction of the udder in dairy cows due to bacterial infection or mechanical injury. Infectious mastitis can be caused by cow to cow transmission or as a result of environmental challenges. It is regarded as the most common and costly disease affecting dairy cattle. In the average dairy herd, the annual cost is approx. $230 per cow, and 70% of which is further associated with the resulting milk loss. Blue Gold™ Grand Champion eliminates the need for costly antiseptic regimes, as it naturally deters the growth and transference of this costly disease. Blue Gold™ Grand Champion can be used on equipment and facilities to prevent the spread and formation of mastitis; but we do recommend our cleaner: Blue Gold™ Yah-50.
Research has shown that many digestive disorders occur when partly digested nutrients are passed through the gut to the lower intestinal tract. This is an indication of a failure to digest and uptake the feed, resulting in deficient nutrient levels, lowered immune functions, and decreased production. A build-up of this feed in the lower gut is a breeding ground for disease and harmful organisms. By correcting digestibility through Blue Gold™ Grand Champion and its inherent properties which deter the growth of diseases and harmful organisms, the gut microflora can improve and achieve the right balance.
Breeding performance is extremely dependent on mineral nutrition. Adequate nutrition supports fertility and newborn quality. Blue Gold is enriched with selenium and calcium sources, which are directly related to quality reproduction. Addressing overall health and vitality through improved digestive functions is the true key to success for optimum reproduction. Blue Gold increases embryo counts, increases sperm counts, promotes more energy and a drive to reproduce – achieving a Blue Gold™ animal that is healthy and one step ahead to a healthy life for increased profits.
Poultry Egg Quality
The primary objective of laying hens is to produce quality wholesome eggs. However, due to how contracts are formed between farmers and buyers, egg quality means different things to different people. Consumers want a safe, healthy and affordable egg, while retailers want to display an attractive or value-added egg (weight, double yolk, shell thickness, safe). Some markets face additional challenges such as not being allowed to treat or wash eggs before dispatch. Eggshell strength is essential for storage and product appearance since cracked eggs do not sell. Blue Gold™ eggs not only increase in size and weight, but shells are thicker, and the odds of double yolks significantly increase – all through nutrition and the attentive care to your animal’s digestive system. Poultry on Blue Gold™ Grand Champion pluck their feathers less, experience little to none mortality rates, and put on lean meat faster.
With all these issues often combined, mortality rates are a serious concern in many animal industries. Blue Gold™ Grand Champion excels at addressing these issues so well that users experience a quick and significant drop in mortality rates within the first year of use. Blue Gold™ Grand Champion is known to induce calmness and remove stress within 24 hours of the first application.
