Based on calf nutrition, Nutristart is formed on 100% milk protein of which 60% comes from full fat skim powder matching perfectly to the calves dietary requirements and digestive enzymes early in life. Thus, biological availability allows for non-limiting growth rates, maximum utilisation of protein and value for ingredients for all calf rearing systems.

Quality drives perfomance

Rapid growth rates are essential to achieving liveweight targets. Feeding a superior milk replacer enables farmers to achieve weight gains of 0.7kg /head /day and more whilst developing a healthy calf.

Nutristart Calf Milk Replacer is the ideal substitute for cow’s milk, formulated for ease of adaption, calf immunity, maximum availability and efficient performance. Suitable for heifer rearing, conventional calf rearing systems and automatic calf feeders.

Directions for Use

The ideal mixing temperature 40 - 45°

  • Mixing too hot damages proteins
  • Mixing too cold can cause poor solubility of powder

 Mixing rate

  • Essential to mix powder and water to MAKE a litre of finished CMR (150g powder to create a litre of finished CMR)
  • Incorrect mixing rate causes dilution and reduced thrive
  • We want to feed milk solids (900 g / calf per day) not excess water

Calf milk replacer needs to get into the abomasum

  • Calves should be fed with heads up to mimic suckling a cow
  • If calves fed on floor the oesophageal groove closes and milk goes to rumen (causing upsets and poor thrive)

Calves healthier fed twice a day

  • Less pressure to get intake
  • Increase total intake
  • Allows for more natural rumen development
  • More representative of nature

Warm milk the better option

  • Cold milk requires energy to bring to rumen temperature
  • This reduces thrive and adds a stress to a calf
  • More risk of disease and stomach ulcers with ice cold milk

Dealing with young calves requires a lot of management

  • Calves require to be trained on an automatic feeder by suckling on teats
  • Ideally calves should be at least 10 days old before introduction to an automatic feeder

Consistency is key

  • Calves are open to problems and need as little stress as possible
  • Consistent feeding pattern, mixing rate and milk temperature very important
  • Fresh concentrates will enable a successful rumen development and keep thrive maximised through the weaning process
  • Regular calibration of automatic feeder or feeding equipment done weekly / between product batches

 Additional Considerations

  • Introduce Nutrias Calf Crunch from day 5
  • Introduce high quality fresh hay or staw from day 10
  • Clean fresh water should be available at all times
  • Feed only freshly mixed drinks
  • Suitable for automatic feeders
