Calf Rearing Tips for healthy calves

January 9, 2017

CALF REARING TIPS:

Disinfection of calf housing is essential. (we recommend OMNICIDE)  Ensure all feeding equipment is clean and hygienic. CALFHAGE can be offered from day 3.  Regular feeding intervals for milk replacer and consistent mixing method and concentration are essential to reduce stomach upsets.  Fresh clean water should be available at all times.

 

BEDDING CALVES:

Deep dry bedding is essential for calf comfort and hygiene.  Straw is scarce but FIBRE BED is widely available in Bulk or in bags.  FIBRE BED is coarser than PEAT BED and has excellent absorption capacity and keeps calves spotlessly clean.  SAWDUST is also available in 30kg bags.

MILKREPLACER

We stock milk replacer from VOLAC, INTERCHEM, PROVIMI and TROUW.

The PROVIMI range has a milk replacer to suit all animal types with protein ranging from 20% to 26%.  Highly palatable and easy to mix and will suit bucket or machine rearing.

Contains PROVIOX 50 which contains natural antioxidants to boost immunity.

All PROVIMI milk replacers also contain NUSTART which is a gut conditioner containing prebiotics, probiotics and natural antioxidants to accelerate gut development, reduce digestive upsets, increase solid feed intake and promote extra growth.   provimi-pic                               calfhage
