Optimal calf performance

Colostrum quality and quantity is the central component of successful calf rearing.  Dry cow management provides the key to optimise both these parameters.

High quality calf milk replacer should follow the colostrum period.  By day 4 all calves should have access to fresh water and suitable concentrate feed.  Calf performance can be accelerated using new metabolic programming concepts in combination with Greenline CalfTM

Successful weaning can be achieved from week 7 when calves are consuming 1.5 kg or more of concentrate feed on 3 consecutive days.
