Feeding Recommendations

Feed along with whole milk or a high-quality calf milk replacer. NRM Moozlee® 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 Moozlee® 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.

Calf Age (Days)Moozlee®Recommendations
0-49Ad libFeed little and often as a supplement to whole milk or a
quality milk replacer at recommended feeding rates.
50-56600Combine Moozlee® with NRM GrowUp 20% (ad lib) for optimum results.

From 57 days, continue feeding NRM GrowUp 20%. You may wish to switch to a lower protein feed such as NRM GrowUp 16% once the calves weigh more than 80kg.

Feeding recommendation to aid in the control of coccidiosis

To aid in the control of coccidiosis, minimum dose rate of 5mg Bovatec®/kg liveweight (1mg lasalocid sodium/kg liveweight) is required per day. Up to twice this dose rate is indicated where severe coccidial challenge is expected or a wide range of individual liveweights occur within a group. 

Caution: Do not feed to any animal species other than those stipulated on the label.
