Feeding Recommendation

Introduce NRM Moozlee to calves in the first week of life. Intakes will be small at first, but will increase over time. Ensure fresh feed is put out each day and clean out troughs frequently.

You may wish to switch calves to a pelleted feed such as NRM GrowUp® 20% as calves get older. If doing this, transition over to a pelleted feed by mixing the NRM Moozlee and NRM GrowUp® 20% pellets together for a few days before fully transitioning over to the pellet. Wean calves off milk gradually at 65kg minimum weight, when consuming 1kg of Moozlee per day. Ensure fresh, clean water is always available.
