Feeding Recommendations

Feed along with whole milk or a high-quality calf milk replacer. NRM GrowUp® 20% should be introduced gradually in the first week of life to help form habits early. Intakes may be limited when feeding higher volumes of milk. 

Additional coccidiostat may be required in the milk until pellet intake is sufficient to aid in the control of coccidiosis. 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® 20% 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. 

Storage

Ensure product is stored in a cool, dry and vermin free environment.
