FEEDING PROGRAMME: DAY 1 TO 6 MONTHS

  • Day 1–3: Provide good quality colostrum at 10–12% of the birth mass. Ideally provide the first feedings 2 hours, 6 hours and 24 hours after the birth.
  • Day 4: Provide 4 litres of milk per day for large-frame calves and 3 litres per day for small-frame calves over two feedings per day.
  • Provide clean, fresh drinking water from day 5.
  • Provide calf starter diet ad lib from day 3 or 4 until 3 months of age.
  • Provide complete calf grower diet ad lib from 3 months of age to 6 months.
  • These calf diets are palatable and contain medications to prevent acidosis and improve feed conversion rate and growth.
  • These diets provide all the necessary minerals, trace minerals and vitamins.

FEEDING PROGRAMME: 6 MONTHS TO STEAM-UP

  • Complete heifer grower diets from 6 months and older are also available from your Molatek salesperson.
  • Alternatively, the complete calf grower diet or the heifer mixed concentrate can be fed at 3 kg per day for largeframe heifers (Holsteins) and 2,5 kg per day for small-frame heifers (Jerseys) plus ad lib access to roughage or pasture.
  • Molatek Master 20 can be given to heifers from 5 to 6 months old at 1 to 1,5 kg/day and provides protein and energy in a balanced form.
  • These are only examples and intake will depend on the quality of the raw materials.
  • Provide complete calf grower diet ad lib from 3 months of age to 6 months.
  • These calf diets are palatable and contain medications to prevent acidosis and improve feed conversion rate and growth.
  • Intake should be monitored and managed daily to ensure that heifers perform according to the relevant growth curves.
  • If heifers are growing too fast, less of the mixed concentrate should be fed with ad lib access to hay/pasture.
  • These diets provide all the necessary minerals, trace minerals and vitamins. It is strongly recommended that
    heifers receive an injectable vitamin-trace mineral solution three weeks prior to calving.
