Nutristart Plus has been developed to achieve the highest performance in replacement heifers through an intensive feeding programme. Consistency of product and excellent bio-availability allow calves to consume large amounts of milk replacer to consume large amounts from a young age. This unlocks the calf’s genetic potential and subsequent lifetime performance.

Importance of protein for heifer rearing:

Designed for intensive heifer rearing, added protein content of this product delivers frame for age in young animals. From birth a calf’s requirement for quality protein is at an all time high. Ensuring non-limiting skeletal development by supplying essential amino acids is crucial to a successful rearing of a replacement heifer. Combining milk source proteins (whey protein & skim powder) delivers this in abundance.

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 straw from day 10
  • Clean fresh water should always be available
  • Feed only freshly mixed drink
  • Suitable for automatic feeders
