Calf Starter

Calf Starter is a molassed, protein mix, formulated as a follow-on diet to accompany liquid milk feeding. The combination of a protein and cereal energy mix and straw encourage early rumen development and growth rate, producing a calf well suited to utilising pasture at any early age. Bovatec is include as a coccidiostat to provide freedom from Coccidiosis and to enhance overall nutrient availability to maximise growth rates. Yea-Sacc is added to this diet to enhance nutrient digestibility to help rumen development and pasture adaption.

Allow free access to feed, ensuring stale or uneaten meal is removed daily and that access to straw is available at all times 
to encourage early rumen development. Water should be freely available.
