Feeding Guide

  • Feed to appetite to growing calves up from 12 weeks of age onwards.
  • Provide straw or hay as a roughage source.
  • Feed to growing heifers, at a rate equivalent to 1/4 to 2% of live-weight (0.25 – 2 kg per 100 kg live-weight), according to forage availability and quality until 3 – 4 weeks prior to calving. Aim for steady growth rates, avoiding extended periods of weight loss or rapid gain.
  • Ensure fresh, clean drinking water is available.
  • Follow on from Barastoc Calf Rearer Pellets or Barastoc Calf Meal, over a 3-day period, from 12 weeks of age. Introduce Barastoc Lead Up Pellets 2 to 3 weeks prior to calving.
