Calf Starter Meal is a palatable and nutritious food formulated to be fed to calves from birth to three months of age. It provides the necessary nutritional requirements of the pre-ruminant calf to promote rapid and healthy rumen development.
It is nutritionally balanced for essential nutrients such as protein, energy, vitamins, minerals and acidifiers, and contains lasalocid sodium for improved growth rates and feed conversion efficiency and as an aid in the prevention of coccidiosis.
