Objective: Evaluate whether prebiotic and probiotic feed additives influenced the immune response during the weaning period in beef calves. Hypothesis: Addition of both prebiotic and probiotic feed additives provided in a post weaning ration will enhance immune response and minimize morbidity. Furthermore, it is expected this will provide elevated IgG serum concentrations as compared to the control ration.
