Gold Spike Highly Concentrated Capsules

Gold Spike Highly Concentrated Capsules provide powerful Smart bacteria that combat mastitis and high somatic cell counts (SCC) with no milk withhold.  Dairy cattle face environmental exposure to infection and disease, even in the best management.  To fight microscopic foreign pathogens Smart bacteria combat this assault by helping cows respond through the appropriate actions. Remember that not all foreign pathogen infections require the entire army of T-cells to defeat them. This over response can actually cause excess inflammation, edema, and even auto toxicity from the cells dying.

The Gold Spike Highly Concentrated Capsules solve this problem by delivering a one-two punch against foreign bodies.  This first punch is resisting pathogen growth through pathogen management and the second is providing regulated immune response with an immune modulator.

Pathogen management takes on the pathogen at its population source. Research shows branded strains B5000h, B5005h and B5150h Bacillus subtilis strains go head to head with Clostridium perfringens, E. coli, Salmonella and other pathogens to reduce their development rate by inhibiting their ability to grow.

Research also shows that immune modulator, Lactobacillus brevis 1E-1, enhances immune response from the digestive tract by helping the body select the correct response to the foreign pathogen.  By quieting the pro-inflammatory response that is responsible for the symptoms caused by pathogenic infections, the body can combat the infection without the negative impacts of over response.

This team approach keeps the cow’s body in balance to help her return to peak production faster.

Even thou this might not be an unbias comment because I was involved in doing some of the field trials in dairy farms in my area. The outstanding results spoke by themself. In such harsh environment(heat & high humidity) for dairy cows in Puerto Rico we had, in some instances a success rates of over 75% in lowering SCC.

We have used the capsule with great sucess in our beef herd, utilizing on cows with retained placenta and mastitis. One in particular, calved in with mastitis, didn't clean, and lost her calf. She was running a high temp and not eating well. We removed the placenta and gave her capsules for 3 days, as her only treatment, as we didn't want to use any antibiotics, just in case we could sell her for cull. 6 weeks later we sold her for $60 cwt as a cull cow. We have also used the capsules at weaning and castration time and have been able to not use any shots of any kind, either vacine or antibiotic, and have had no problems getting calves off to a good start in the feedlot

I Try this product as part of a trials I didn't expect much at first but this stuff really works, been using it in my farm for 2 month already in cows with environmental mastitis with good success. Highly recommended.

I have the affimilk management system in my farm where electroconductivity is monitored in my cows on a daily basis. We try this product on a high electro-cond. cow that had a steep decline in milk production and I was surprise how it started to lower the electro-cond. while the milk production increase only 12 hrs. after the first treatment. I'll be checking closely on this product!

If caught early, it works very good on mastitis. We also use it on cows with retained placentas. It reduces our reliance on antibiotics, which reduces the risk of contaminated milk. It works for us.

I have been using Gold Spike Boluses on cows that I catch early with mastitis. It has been a great product to use, since I don't have to dump my milk and the mastitis is cleared up.

I am a Priority-One representative. I have had a lot of success with the Gold Spike capsules. I have had the most success in dropping the SCC and in dealing with e.coli and coliform mastitis. One herd took the 3 highest SCC cows on the DHIA sheet and gave each on of them 2 pills at one time. The highest cow was 1,500,000, the second was 900,000 and the third one was 800,000. He did nothing else. The next month none of these cows were even on the SCC list. To be able to heal these three cows for less the $40 is a really cheap and safe fix.

At one point our herd had a 1,200,000 SCC and the milk was unshippable. We gave the entire herd the recommended dosage of Gold Spik and within 3 days it was down to 550 SCC. We began shipping milk again and able to keep our farm running. Since then we have continued having low SCC and been very impressed with Gold Spike.

We had a cow that had mastitis and we called the vet and he tried four different products to treat the cow with no response after they all failed we tried spike after five days the cow was clean and ready to milk.

This has been a remarkable product for me. I am a P-1 dealer and have had dairy producers lower scc, treat mastitis, knock out inflammation and edema. Some of the local Vets have been recommending it because of it's merits. Remarkable Products! Good Job Priority IAC!

I have seen Gold Spike capsules used very effectively in treating high Somatic Cell Counts (SCC) and mastitis for dairy cows on which I have worked. As a veterinarian, I am very excited about any therapy which doesn't involve the use of antibiotics, particularly in food animals. As concerns about antibiotic resistance and tissue residues continue to grow, the emergence of Gold Spike is indeed timely. It seems Priority-One is exposing just the tip of an iceberg with this product. They have taken an approach of "fighting fire with fire" in utilizing the "smart" bacteria to overcome these infections. I have repeatedly seen mastitis cleared with only a 2 or 3-day course of these capsules. Nothing else. The benefits of SCC reduction, again with only Gold Spike used as a therapy, is wonderful. It is especially nice for dairy managers to not have to worry about milk/meat withhold or trying a different intramammary infusion medicine with varied results. It is exciting to consider the prospects of this product achieving even broader application as current studies are completed and results reported. Going forward, it seems likely the technology behind this product will make an increasingly valuable impact on animal (and even human?) health.
