Calf Performer Nuts

All the benefit of Top Calf in a nut! This is a coarse-ground cubed diet which includes the cooked ingredients which are the integral base of the Top Calf Mix.

Produced in a 6mm nut, it is suitable for calves from day one.

As the diet is coarse ground this helps to stimulate rumen development as the large particle size encourages the calf to salivate more when eating.  This helps to buffer acidity in the gut and continues by creating a diet which is balanced and breaks down slowly.  This means the calf will become an efficient ruminant far more quickly and therefore superior growth rates are achieved.

All the above feeds can be fed ad lib to calves 0-3 months.

All our calf feeds are available in Bulk, 500kg tote bags or convenient 25kg bags.

Deccox

Deccox® (decoquinate) is a powerful, safe anticoccidial for calves that works directly in the small intestine, where it effectively halts the development of the two most economically significant coccidia in cattle.

Even when clinical signs of coccidiosis are not detected, Deccox has demonstrated improved performance in beef and dairy young-stock.

Studies show that heifer calves fed Deccox eat more feed, gain more weight and have less sickness.

Deccox requires a prescription from your vet.

Minimum order of 1 tonne for coarse mixes and 2 tonnes for compounds.
