Before working with Liz we were introducing the calves to a milking cow diet when they were weaned. Liz changed this to a straw and cake diet and we’ve seen great results. DLWG is good, we are gaining an additional 0.15kg and they are growing into a good frame rather than being pot-bellied.
Calf Rearing - Milk Replacers
Milk replacers are a cost-effective liquid feed for young calves and provide a better nutritional balance than whole milk, whilst ensuring target growth weights.We choose skim calf replacers over whey powder for better protein digestibility. This safeguards against digestive upsets and promotes optimum growth. They also contain natural Vitamin E for an improved immune system.
