The Axcelera-C Calf Rearing System is designed to deliver optimal nutrition to calves for lifetime performance.
The system works by feeding the right quality and quantity of Axcelera-C CMR to provide exacting nutrition whilst stimulating calves to eat Axcelera-C from 5 days. This means calves benefit from the balance between high lactose (46%) liquid milk intakes and high lactose (40%) solid feed intakes.
High and early solid feed intakes are crucial for rumen development that will develop growth momentum most significantly up to weaning and beyond. Consequently, calves naturally eat more solid feed earlier, reaching 1.5kg dry matter intake in readiness for weaning faster than conventional systems.
Trials show that the Axcelera-C Calf Rearing System grows faster calves by feeding less milk.
Two groups of calves were offered 2 different diets - with confounding results:
- 40 day Axcelera-C system: 26kg of Calf Milk Replacer & 14.2 kg of Axcelera-C per calf.
- 70 day program: 45kg of Calf Milk Replacer per calf.
By 120 days - Axcelera-C calves fed 19kg less milk than conventional high milk calves were 8.3kg heavier.
By 120 days - Axcelera-C calves fed 19kg less milk than conventional high milk calves were growing 160g/day faster
