Calf Grower Pellets are a grain based pellet (small 5mm diameter) for the energy and protein supplementation of calves, at and after weaning from around 40kg to 150kg live weight, to stimulate rumen development and maintain steady growth and body development. It is to be fed in conjunction with free access to good pastures and forages.

Features and benefits :

  • Contains Rumensin as a rumen modifier for improved liveweight gains and feed conversion efficiency, and as an aid in the control of bloat.
  • Contains Acid Buf as a buffer to aid in the prevention of rumen acidosis (grain poisoning).

Feeding Recommendations :
As all feeding systems and requirements are different, it is recommended you seek the advice of a nutritionist to best develop a suitable feeding program for your requirements and feeding rations. As a low fibre high grain supplement, the pellets are designed for feeding at up to 1-2% of body weight per day, in troughs or self feeders,in conjunction with fibre forage. They can be trailed out sparsely in long runs or fed from self feeders with slides set right down to control intake. Controlled and gradual feeding is important and continuous access to fibre sources is critical for proper rumen function. Give special attention to controlling the introduction of pellets to excessively hungry or drought affected stock. During the introduction, start to offer pellets at 0.2% of body weight per day and slowly increase the daily amount over 10 – 14 days up to around 1 – 2% of body weight per day, with fibre always available to make up the balance of the total diet intake. Ensure that clean fresh water is available at all times.

Storage :
Store in a cool dry place away from vermin.
