14% HIGH ENERGY CALF RECEIVING & TRANSITION RATION
14% HE Calf Receiving and Transition Ration is an economical High-Energy pellet designed for calves entering a dry-lot feeding scenario. This pellet is intended to be blended into “starter-receiving” diets which serve as “transition rations” for the first 14-45 days that calves are introduced to a dry lot and bunk feeding. This is an excellent solution for weaned calves or stocker cattle just coming off grass and entering the feedlot. This pellet is formulated to balance typical receiving diets (with elevated calcium and no phosphorus added) and has comprehensive vitamin and mineral levels to enhance the immune system. Good nutrition improves the calf’s ability to handle stress, illness, and response to vaccination programs and therefore decreases morbidity.
For the prevention of coccidiosis and respiratory disease, medications approved for calves can be added to this formula on a 1-ton custom-basis.
This supplement is intended to be fed to calves entering a dry-lot feeding scenario and is formulated to balance a typical receiving total mixed ration (TMR). Offer pellets at the rate of 1 lb per 100 pounds of bodyweight to calves weighing ~400-800 lbs during weaning, preconditioning, or upon arrival into a dry-lot feeding scenario. Do not feed free-choice nor exceed 10 lbs / hd / day. Always feed in addition to good-quality hay (that comprises no less than 50% of the calf’s diet). Provide plenty of fresh, clean water and plain white salt at all times. It is also recommended that Ranch-O-Lyx lick tubs be offered in the pen of newly received calves to help meet the nutrient needs of stressed calves, particularly those that are naïve to bunk feeding. Feeding outside of these recommendations may result in digestive upset (such as bloat) in young calves. Medications can be added on a custom basis.
Store product in a clean environment free of moisture, rodents, insects, and other pests. Do not feed moldy or repugnant feed. This product has been formulated specifically for cattle and is not intended for other species.
