Newly-grouped and weaned beef or dairy calves face a challenge of transitioning smoothly.

Grouping calves for the first time is a stressful event:

  • Poor or zero feed intakes for days
  • The absence of milk in newly-weaned beef calves
  • Social stress from other calves
  • Not recognising TMR as feed
  • Bunks or troughs are a new concept to corralled calves

By top-dressing the TMR in bunks, calves are instinctively drawn to the highly palatable 40% lactose technology and aggressively eat through the TMR in day of transition.
