  • FEEDING GUIDELINES

    • Feed as a supplement to CMR or milk 
    • Introduce to calves from birth until weaning off CMR until milk.
    • Gradually introduce feed from 1kg up to a maximum rate of 4kg per head per day. 
    • Continue to feed until desired weaning weights are reached to smooth the transition to an all grass diet and optimise growth rates.
    • A long fibre source (hay or straw) should always be fed when feeding pelletised calf feed.
    • Ensure calves have unrestricted access to fresh and clean water at all times.
    • Ensure adequate feed space (should be fed in troughs or feeders).
    • Do not feed if pellets get wet or appear mouldy.
