Feeding Recommendations

Feed 1  to  1.5kg  per  calf  per  day  between  80  and  120kg  liveweight,  depending  on  desired  performance,  forage  quality and availability. For best results, feed unweaned calves on NRM Moozlee® or GrowUp® 20%, transitioning to GrowUp® 16% after weaning off milk, depending on the quality of the pasture available.  


Wean off milk gradually at a minimum 6 weeks of age and 65-80kg when consuming between 1 to 1.5kg NRM calf feed depending on the calf size and breed.  

Continue to feed NRM calf feed at 1-1.5kg/head/day for 1-2 months after weaning from milk. NRM GrowUp® 16% should be offered fresh each day. If fed in troughs, clean these out frequently. 

Ensure access to clean reachable drinking water and good quality forage.
