A high-quality finishing CMR with curding properties, manufactured from NZ dairy ingredients.

Benefits
  • Suitable from 21 days old through to weaning, when calves are becoming able to digest more complex proteins.
  • Designed for a two-stage feeding system, to help lower rearing costs. Feeding should begin with colostrum followed by quality whole milk or Ancalf™.
  • 22% protein and 20% fat primarily from high quality dairy sources, providing essential nutrition for growth and development.
  • Good casein component, providing a partial curd, to assist with initial digestion in the stomach and improved nutrient supply & uptake.
 
  • Actigen® prebiotic supports calf health by preventing some bad bacteria (gram negative bacteria) populating the intestine, enabling the gut to function more efficiently and liberates nutrients for growth and health.
  • Specific vitamins and minerals to enhance calf development and health.
  • Does not contain a coccidiostat, suitable for Bobby calves.
  • Every batch thoroughly tested to provide product consistency and meet rigorous Fonterra quality standards.
