Calf-Tel and Land O'Lakes Animal Milk Products have partnered to introduce a new 4-qt. bottle. This bottle provides dairy producers a convenient way to deliver more nutrition to calves as part of a full potential feeding program.
"The new 4-qt. bottle meets the needs of many dairy producers who are adapting a full-potential feeding program," said Larry Van Roekel, director of marketing for Land O'Lakes Animal Milk Products. "The basis of the full-potential program is to provide calves with increased nutrient intake during the preweaning phase, and the 4-qt. bottle will make it easier for producers to achieve that goal by increasing the volume fed at each feeding."
Using a 4-qt. bottle allows for feeding a higher level of nutrition for calf raisers who find feeding more than two times per day impractical within their management or labor situation.
However, potentially the biggest advantage is the ability to provide more nutrition to calves at an earlier stage in life. Intake has proven to be critical for a calf to achieve its full genetic potential, leading to lifelong health and milk production benefits.
