ULTRA GROW CALF RATION RANGE "THE FOUNDATION STONES"
Ultragrow 16% & Ultragrow Elite 18% Crude Protein - Designed to meet the needs of your bull calves' & future milking herd
A quality calf ration is the second nutritional input (along with milk or milk replacer) in a successful calf rearing program. The
Ultragrow Calf Pellet Range (16% & Elite 18% protein range)
signifies quality and performance and is designed to ensure that your
calves develop and grow rapidly. Poor early growth of calves is almost impossible to make up in later periods of growth.
Calf Pellets have been designed to meet the specific requirements of a
rapidly growing calf in the important transitional phase of rumen
development. The two tier protein system allows you to
select what specification your calves need depending on their age and
In the first few weeks of life a calf has little rumen development with no fermentation occurring. Digestion in the abomasum (or true stomach) and intestines functions like that of a monogastric animal. For
this reason a calf's diet needs to be highly digestible and balanced
nutritionally, and this need is reflected in AGV's choice of quality
protein and energy sources.
For calves to develop muscle and bone rapidly, protein is essential. As protein is absorbed through the intestinal track, it is converted into amino acids. Amino
acids are the building blocks for the calf's development, if critical
amino acids are not present in the calf's diet then growth is limited. Not all protein sources contain a balance of amino acids. For this reason, the protein sources in Ultragrow Calf Pellets have been selected for amino acid profiles. The
two tier crude protein level system of Elite 18% (for bobby calves)
and16% (for weaned calves) allows you to continue supplementation for
longer, thus ensuring the best possible early growth rates for your
replacement heifers. Natural, highly digestible protein sources are included.
rapid growth, Ultragrow Calf Pellets contain Rumensin/Bovatec, which
improves the efficiency of feed conversion, minimises bloat and acts in
maintaining a uniform consumption rate. Rumensin/Bovatec also aids in prevention of Coccidiosis, a common calf disease.
It is essential that the calf's rumen develops as rapidly as possible. A calf should be introduced to new feed slowly, over a number of days, as with cows there should be no sudden dietary changes. Don't wean calves and cut out meal all at the same time, meal should be continued for at least a month after weaning from milk. Always ensure fresh water and hay are available at all times during the rearing process.
Pellets are formulated to provide correct calcium, phosphorus and trace
mineral levels, plus Vitamin A, D3 & E.
With AgVision's commitment to quality and to products that perform, the results are a premium calf ration.
