Health and reproductive issues over the transition period have serious downstream consequences for both your cows’ health and farm operations.
Negative Health Outcomes
Incidences of metritis range from 20-40% which threatens animal health and welfare through decreased cow well-being, milk production, and reproductive performance.
The overuse of antibiotics in livestock has partially led to antibiotic-resistant bacteria — a major public health threat.
The dairy industry has received scrutiny from consumers who are concerned about their health, the quality of dairy products, animal wellbeing, and environmental sustainability.
Healthy Cow’s innovations support dairy farmers’ efforts to proactively care for their cows and produce high-quality milk for their families and communities. ProPreg™ is a unique approach to using probiotics to strengthen and renew the cow’s reproductive tract, especially during the stressful transition period.
Supports Cattle Health
Maintains optimal conditions to support excellent cow health and post-calving recovery.
Compelling ROI making it ideal for use in heifers and adult cows.
No Withdrawal Period
There is no withdrawal period due to Prepreg's™ GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe) ingredients.
Safe and Easy
Safe administration and easy implementation into farm protocols and routines.
As an industry, I believe we need to move towards a preventative mindset. ProPreg™ is now a key tool in our toolbox to prevent Metritis. If we can reduce any hindrance to a cow transitioning to peak production we believe it is worth the investment. With ProPreg™, we are looking at treating cow’s health holistically instead of piece by piece like IV's and injectables.

ProPreg™ has become an integral part of our pre and post-calving routine. By helping maintain a healthy reproductive microbiome, ProPreg™ supports the immune systems of the cow and calf. Since we have been using ProPreg™, retained placentas and metritis have notably reduced. Across several key benchmarks (colostrum quality, calving ease, post-calving recovery, 1st insemination), ProPreg™-treated cows and their calves are just better. It has definitely improved my bottom line.
