NRM GrowUp® 16% is a premium calf feed formulated to provide the protein and energy required to support ongoing development in calves over 80kg liveweight. Formulated to complement the high protein pasture available for spring born calves that have been weaned, NRM GrowUp® 16% provides a source of energy and carbohydrates that is balanced with high quality protein sources. Together with quality pasture, NRM GrowUp® 16% supports continued rumen development in growing calves and aids in the transition to an all pasture diet.
NRM GrowUp® 16% can also be used when performance targets have not been achieved or are under threat.
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.
