WATCH: Milk Replacer


In order to achieve optimum growth performance in calves, it is critical that you choose the correct type of milk replacer in order to achieve your target weight gains – that’s according to Susan Dudley M.Agri.Sc – Research and Development Nutritionist at Kiernan Milling.

Protein is the limiting factor for performance in calves as they have a high protein requirement for growth and skeletal development.

Milk Replacer Range

Kiernan Milling’s milk replacer range contains 23% and 26% crude protein.

Both of these milk replacers contain protein sources that are milk-derived including whey and skimmed powder which drive on average daily gain in calves.

“They also contain and pre and probiotics which can help prevent scour and ensure a healthy calf.”

“They have high levels of Vitamin E, which will fight infection and boost immunity.”

The milk replacers are highly digestible, with fibre levels below 0.1% which means that nearly all of the product’s nutrients are being absorbed and utilised by a calf.

The company's milk replacers also contain vanilla which improves palatability and increases feed intakes.
