Merrick’s 25-15 milk replacer feeding program provides an excellent balance of protein and energy for the optimum growth of Jersey calves. The 25-15 formula offers a high-powered combination of all natural milk and egg proteins, fat and carbohydrates for efficient growth.
With the 25-15 feeding program, Jersey calves actually consume 3.12 Mcal of energy each day compared with 2.15 Mcal with a 20-20 program. Calves consume plenty of energy for growth, even during the higher energy demands of winter-time feeding.
Encourages Starter Intake
Calves must consume an adequate amount of starter feed if they are to be weaned by six weeks of age. High fat formulas have been linked to reduced or delayed calf starter intake. The 25-15 feeding program for Jersey calves provides the right combination of protein, fat and feeding rate to encourage starter intake and promote early, efficient weaning.
