Milky Way – The only concentrated calf milk for your calves.
Milky Way is a condensed calf milk based on skim milk and has 40-50% more milk protein and energy than standard calf milk.
Feeding 500g/day calves achieved growth rates to 12 weeks of 0.95-0.99kgs/day (Harper Adams University 2016, 2017).
Feeding 500g of Milky Way provides 120g of plant oils and buttermilk to calves each day. This is equivalent to 650-700g of standard milk powder.
Milky Way also provides 100g of milk protein as distinct from crude protein, again the equivalent of 650-700g of standard powder.
Once calves reach 4-5 weeks of age, they can digest crude protein but milk replacer should be less than ½ their total feed intake at this stage so it’s of little extra benefit to the calf.
Milky Way – less powder, less warm water, less mixing- more nutrition for your calves.
