WAGYU CALF GROWER PELLETS

RIVERINA WAGYU CALF GROWER PELLETS are a palatable, protein and energy supplement with added vitamins and minerals for growing wagyu calves for early weaning or creep feeding wagyu calves greater than 200kg liveweight.

TYPICAL COMPOSITION

  • Barley, maize, wheat, millrun, soybean meal, canola meal, molasses, buffers, organic zinc, vegetable oil, dicalcium phosphate, limestone, urea, mycotoxin binder, mould inhibitor, Rumensin®, Flavo® salt and Riverina ruminant vitamin & mineral premix.
  • Base raw materials may gradually change seasonally.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

  • THIS IS NOT A COMPLETE FEED. It is designed to be fed with a roughage source such as pasture, hay or silage.

WAGYU CALF GROWER PELLETS can be used for:

  • CREEP FEEDING ON PASTURE: Feed ad lib in a self-feeder while on the cow in a creep feeding yard. DO NOT allow cows access to the feeder. Calves will receive enough roughage while grazing with the cow.
  • EARLY WEANING IN YARDS:
    • Initially feed the WAGYU CALF GROWER PELLETS in troughs.
    • Week 1 – Offer 0.5kg/head/day in troughs.
    • Feeding rates can be increased by 0.25kg/head/day when the calves are leaving the troughs empty.
    • Week 2 – Offer 1kg/head/day of the WAGYU CALF GROWER PELLETS and any other dry licks or supplements that will be used after weaning.
    • Remove stale feed from the troughs daily.
    • Good quality leafy hay must be available at all times eg oaten, grassy lucerne or irrigated rhodes grass hay.
    • Feed should be available at all times.
    • Water troughs should be cleaned a minimum of once a day when in the yards to improve feed intakes.
  • After weaning calves can be turned out onto pasture with a self-feeder. The slides adjusted down to restrict intakes to achieve the desired rate of gain.
  • Feed at 0.5 – 1.5% body weight after weaning.
  • The target should be to achieve an average of 0.7kg/head/day to achieve a liveweight of 280kg at 12 months of age.
  • Calves should always have access to fresh, cool, clean water at all times.
  • Contact your local Riverina representative for more advice on weaning wagyu cattle.
