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 Calf Ration 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.
Elite Calf Range has been designed to meet the specific requirements of a rapidly growing calf in the important transitional phase of rumen development.
In the first few weeks of life a calf has little rumen development with no fermentation occurring. The 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.
Ingredients Selected From:
Maize, Wheat, Barley, Copra Meal, Dried Distillers Grain, Soya Meal, Limestone, Salt, Lactose, Zeolite, Vitamins and Trace Minerals, Coccidiostat Bovatec, Molasses & Vegetable Oil.
To facilitate rapid growth, our Elite Calf Range contains 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. It is not advised to 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.
Elite Calf Range is 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.
