Beef Early Wean is a pelleted feed designed to be fed to early weaned beef calves. The pellet can be hand fed or used in a self-feeder. It is formulated to maximize dry matter intake, while providing nutrients critical for the calves to reach their growth potential.
Fiber stimulates rumen activity, and slows rumen fermentation rate. Beef Early Wean is a fiber based feed allowing for maximum digestibility while minimizing rumen disorders. Beef Early Wean is formulated with a large part of the energy coming from digestible fiber.
Protein is required by rumen microorganisms and for muscle growth. Beef Early Wean does not contain non-protein nitrogen sources but is formulated with a combination of protein sources, to provide an optimal amino acid balance promoting efficient growth.
Organic Trace Mineral Fortification
Beef Early Wean is fortified with organic zinc, copper, manganese, cobalt and selenium to support disease resistance.
Added to enhance rumen microbial growth and stabilize the rumen environment.
