Ready Rumen® Pellets & Straw with Coccidiostat

An all-in-one feed, designed to provide pellets and straw in a single feed

Ready Rumen® is a blend of high protein mineralised pellets, lucerne chaff and molasses.

The long fibre in Ready Rumen® is included to aid rumen function and rumination activity. A complete feed that requires no added roughage, vitamins or minerals, Ready Rumen® offers a hassle free feed for all types of calf rearing systems.

Key Benefits and Features

  • Complete feed suitable for ad lib feeding to calves housed inside from 4 to 70 days of age.
  • Easy to use complete feed
  • Ideal for both 'once a day' and 'twice a day' systems
  • Should be fed ad lib with fresh feed offered each day
  • Calves fed Ready Rumen do not require access to pasture until 8-10 weeks of age, at up to 1.5kg/calf/day.
  • Ensure calves always have access to clean, fresh drinking water 24/7.
  • Ensure young animals have access to a feed containing a coccidiostat at least 2-3 weeks prior to weaning, as a coccidial challenge is most likely to occur in the first 8 weeks after weaning.
