“Do you know that up to 75% of New Zealand’s cows
entering the milking herd¹ are under their target weights?
If your cows fall into this category, you’ll need to change
the way you raise your calves.” Stephen Bell-Booth CEO
Independent research from Massey University shows that calves reared on Queen of Calves Nutrition Programme grow significantly faster and they produce significantly more milk compared to age and breedmatched animals not on the programme.
The Queen of Calves Nutrition Programme is a completely natural, powerful nutrition programme that gives calves higher growth rates, greater body stature and earlier weaning.²
This means you’re putting them to work earlier, producing more milk from them - and, importantly, making more money from them. $2000 more per cow over it’s lifetime.³
The Queen of Calves Nutrition Programme is delivered from day one through to an average weaning age of 75 days, approximately eight to nine days earlier than a conventional calf diet. During this time your calves can grow 10% faster, with improved skeletal and rumen development.
