Calf 20 Pellets

Meal Time Fresh is Best Calf Pellets are grain-based with no compromise on quality ingredients. We know that fresh is best, and include sweet molasses for improved palatability to encourage early consumption and stimulate rumen development. All feeds contain high quality protein ingredients and energy rich cereal grains to promote optimum growth, development and health. All diets contain Bovatec® to aid in the control of coccidiosis.


    Calf 20 Pellets Protein: 20% Calf 16 Pellets Protein: 16% Calf 14 Pellets Protein: 14% Approximate on a DM basis. Analysis may vary slightly due to grain variances beyond our control.


    Calf Pellets are to be fed in conjunction with suitable milk rearing systems. • Offer Fresh is Best Calf 20 Pellets ad-lib from four days of age to encourage early consumption and stimulate rumen development.

    • Calves should always have access to a quality roughage such as straw or stalky hay.

    • Once calves are about four weeks of age and have access to quality high protein spring pasture, Fresh is Best Calf 16 Pellets may be used ad-lib instead of Fresh is Best Calf 20 Pellets.

    • Gradually wean off milk once calves are regularly consuming 1kg of Fresh is Best Calf 16 Pellets per day and continue to feed Fresh is Best Calf 16 Pellets ad-lib until 100kg target weight is reached.

    • From 100-150kg live weight, either continue to feed Fresh is Best Calf 16 Pellets; or the more economic option of Fresh is Best Calf 14 Pellets, to maintain protection from coccidiosis and lessen the likelihood of growth checks in the transition to a pasture-only diet.

    • For improved live weight gain and as an aid in the control of coccidiosis, feed 1kg of Fresh is Best Calf Pellets per 90kg calf to provide 90mg/kg live weight lasalocid per day.

    • Always have fresh, clean water available.
