Calf Sweetmix 20%

This highly palatable, easily digested and highly nutritious ration is ideal for calves during the first 2-3 weeks while introducing them to Earlywean 16% Calf Pellets or High Protein 20% Calf Pellets. Sharpes Calf Sweetmix is a mixture of steam rolled grain and pellets, blended together with molasses and has proved to be an ideal starter ration.  No palm kernel included.

Sharpes Sweetmix gives calves that head start they need reach their full growth potential.

Contains Rumensin for the control of coccidiosis.

Hi Protein Calf Pellets 20%

This high protein ration has been developed to enable calf rearers to reduce milk replacer volumes and feed milk once per day. If restricting whole milk volumes extra milk replacer will need to be added to maintain correct nutrient levels. Introduce Sharpes Calf Sweetmix as a palatable starter ration while moving totally to High Protein 20% Calf Pellets by the end of week two. The smaller milk volume ensures that the calf will take to hard feed and promote that vital early rumen development. High Protein 20% Calf Pellets should be fed ad lib up to a maximum intake of 1.5kg per day. No palm kernel included. 

Rumensin included for the control of coccidiosis.

Earlywean Calf Pellets 16%

Our original calf ration proven over many years. Introduce at 4 days or following on from feeding Sharpes Calf Sweetmix. Ideal with twice a day whole milk or milk replacer feeding. For early rumen development feed up to 1kg per day until weaning onto clean pasture then feed up to 1.5kg per day from weaning to about 10-12 weeks. No palm kernel included.

Rumensin included for the control of coccidiosis.
