Testimonial from Jeff Core

We first learned of RECAL PLUS the hard way at World Dairy Expo 2012 when we found ourselves with eight milk cows that didn't handle the trip very well. Luckily, Dr. G.W. Snider happened to be in our barn working with another cow. He instantly recommended RECAL boluses to help get the cows restarted. We were amazed at how quickly the cows started to get back on track. They seemed to immediately start eating better. When we got home, we couldn't wait to check out the website and call the phone number on the bottle of boluses. We quickly made the decision to put the whole herd on RECAL PLUS before our annual trip to the All-American Jersey Show. The great people at RECAL Microbials assured me that if we weren't happy after thirty days that we paid nothing for the product. Thirty days later after a successful All-American trip with cows that had fully rebounded from their World Dairy Expo trip, we were true believers in the RECAL PLUS product.

When we started the RECAL PLUS on our whole herd of 70 cows, we were monitoring our dry matter intakes and milk production. We also did some manure screening before we started the product and also seven days after we started. We could not believe the difference in the manure screenings. The undigested feed that was left in the manure was much smaller in particle size and when dried down and weighed there was actually less undigested feed. With monitoring our dry matter intakes, we saw a 6% decrease in dry matter intake and our milk production and butter fat actually went up. This was due to better digestion and utilization of the feed. This makes for better feed efficiency and more profitability. We are also seeing improved reproduction.

In the spring of 2013 Jamie wanted us to try the new RECAL PLUS SS. He informed us that it was the same as the RECAL PLUS but focused toward even better cow health. We were the first people to try the RECAL PLUS SS. The very first thing we noticed after we started feeding the SS was less udder edema in the fresh cows. Next, we noticed in the pre-fresh post fresh transition the cows performed much better. We have been seeing less ketosis, DA's and milk fevers and the cows just take off and milk. We have also noticed a lot more fresh cows showing early heats at 20-40 DIM without shots and much stronger heats. After being on the RECAL PLUS SS for over a year we are seeing much better hoof health, a lot less abscesses, ulcers and hairy warts. We have never had a significant problem with warts but enough to be problematic, and fortunately now we have no warts at all.

After 30 years in the dairy business I have heard a lot of sales pitches and tried a lot of products that didn't prove profitable. RECAL PLUS did exactly what it said it was supposed to do. As you can tell by our numbers, RECAL PLUS is a great aide in feed efficiency while also improving milk production and profitability. We are averaging 6% or more on our butterfat test consistently, proof positive that RECAL PLUS works!


For the last seven years we have used RECAL products, and we currently use RECAL PLUS SS. The capability and versatility of these products continue to impress us. Frequently cows stop responding to products after being on them for a long time. But even after all this time we continue to get results. This past year at the All-American Jersey show we were the winner of 4 cow classes and named National Champion Jersey with Hirds Colton Dream. However, we don’t stop in the show ring. It is important for these animals to prove themselves in the bulk tank. Our herd averaged 21,429 lbs. milk 1,108 lbs. fat, and 825 lbs. of protein. This ranked us 5th for protein and 8th for fat in the nation with the American Jersey Cattle Association for our herd size. Frequently we are asked what products we recommend and we are able to recommend RECAL without hesitation for the consistent results we received. We look forward to including RECAL products for years to come.
