Queen of Calves was first launched in New Zealand by Bell-Booth Limited, in 2001.  ‘The Queen of Calves Nutrition Programme’ has developed over the intervening years. It consists of:


Days 1–18 

2L whole milk with 25g X-Factor, morning and evening.
Freely available lengthy straw or summer hay.
Plentiful clean, fresh water.

Day 19 – weaning

4L whole milk with 200g Queen of Calves, preferably split over two feeds(morning and evening). If you can only feed once a day, feed 4L whole milk with 200g in the afternoon.
Freely available lengthy straw or summer hay.
Calf meal/pellets from week 4.
Plentiful clean, fresh water.





















Calves raised on this programme better convert the energy provided by the diet and as a result wean earlier and reach target weights quicker. The inclusion of probiotics also ensures optimal intestinal health. It is a complete nutritional package for raising well developed, healthy calves.

Calves reared on the Queen of Calves Nutrition Programme go on to produce  high levels of milk solids as heifers – up to 18% higher than traditionally raised calves, as the research shows.
