How do I use ProTect Wean C?

ProTect C Wean is a pelleted feed, to be fed directly to calves as part of an early weaning protocol.

Supply to calves using feed trough or trail feeding.

Provide access to adlib cereal hay and cool, clean water. Introduce ration by feeding 250g per head, fed twice a day. Each day increase ration by 250g per head per feed until ad lib consumption is achieved.

Once calves are consuming up to 1kg per day, additional cracked/rolled cereal grain may be added to ProTect C Wean at a ratio of 2:1 eg 1kg ProTect C Wean + 500g Cereal grain.

Feed ProTect C Wean to calves for 14 to 21 days, or until calves reach liveweight of at least 120kg. Following early weaning, calves can transition to a grain-based diet containing ProTect™ C, or high quality pastures.
