Features & Benefits

NutriVantage for dairy

Helps support the immune system, improve gains and intakes and reduces the impact of stress in calves.

Superior palatability

Intake is essential to rumen development. A combination of molasses, steam flaked corn and soybeans, and oats make for a highly palatable feed, delivering nutrients for optimal growth and development.

Trace minerals and vitamins

Formulated to provide recommended levels of trace minerals and vitamins to maximize calf nutrition.

Complexed trace minerals

Complexed trace minerals have shown to be more digestible compared to inorganic trace minerals and in the case of starting cattle, can decrease sickness and medical costs while enhancing performance.

Formulated with Bovatec for control of coccidiosis in cattle weighing up to 800 lbs.
