Blueprint® Goat Starter

Blueprint® Goat Starter is a complete, palatable mini pellet designed to improve goat growth performance and feed efficiency in pre-weaning kids. 

About the Product

Blueprint® Goat Starter is manufactured so every mouthful of feed is just like the previous. This product is formulated for increased early-life, dry feed intake to promote kid health and enhance rumen development which accelerates growth performance and improves feed efficiency as goats enter the growing phase of production.

As part of the Blueprint® program, the Alltech technologies in this product promote digestive, immune and urinary system health. These products include Bioplex®, a source of organic trace minerals (cobalt, copper, manganese and zinc), and Sel-Plex®, a selenium yeast. Blueprint organic trace minerals resemble those found naturally in plant proteins. This translates to increased availability with less interference by antagonists and less oxidative stress, which, in turn, improves performance.

Blueprint® Goat Starter also contains Bio-Mos® 2, a cutting-edge technology for gut health that enhances bacterial diversity and is helpful when animals are experiencing stress or going through transition periods. 

Whether being kept as a breeding replacement or sent to a feedlot, Blueprint® Goat Starter promotes intake early in the kid’s life, resulting in successful rumen development for a lifetime of good health and cost-effective production.
