Product Description

A comprehensive vitamin and mineral supplement is included to support calf development and health, plus Bovatec® to aid in the prevention of coccidiosis. The key to success in rearing calves is to develop their rumen and rumen papillae as quickly as possible, so that they can utilise pasture more efficiently once they are weaned. By providing a very palatable and highly digestible grain based feed, this helps to accomplish that goal.

Delivery available in 20-25kg Bags, Bulk Bags or Bulk Auger Truck into Silo.

  • Calfway 20 Pellets are to be fed in conjunction with a suitable milk rearing system.
  • Offer Calfway 20 Pellets ad-lib from 4 days of age to encourage early consumption and stimulate rumen development.
  • Keep feed fresh, and ensure that feeding containers are kept clean.
  • Calves should always have access to a quality roughage such as straw or stalky hay.
  • Ensure that calves have access to fresh clean water at all times.
  • Once calves are regularly consuming over 1 kg of Calfway 20 pellets per day, gradually wean off milk, ensuring that quality pasture is available. Once on pasture, calves may be changed to Calfway 16 Pellets. Feed ad-lib until target weights are reached.
