Getting calves off to a good start can help improve both short-term and long-term profitability and productivity. Housing, hygiene, quality colostrum at birth, and a good nutrition and management program will impact overall health and growth rate of your calves. It is vital that calves maintain good growth from the start, with a goal of calving at 22-24 month of age. Studies have indicated that calves with insufficient growth actually reduce productivity and ultimately profitability. The sooner they can enter the milking herd, the faster the return on your investment.
Renaissance provides a quality line of milk replacers, calf starters, and a 17% grower product, ideal components for progressive dairy programs. These products formulated with your calf's nutrition and growth rate in mind
