Milk Replacers

Our calf and lamb milk replacers are designed to support the growth, health, and wellbeing of your youngstock, by providing the correct balance of specially selected milk proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals, and additives. We also have a specialised team, dedicated to providing an unbeatable service and invaluable support to our customers.

The Benefits

Achieving higher growth rates pre-weaning can be beneficial, not only for dairy heifers, but for finishing beef and lambs. To promote these targeted growth rates, we must provide high quality and digestible milk replacers, palatable starter feeds, water, and straw from birth. This is also key to ensuring a smooth weaning process.

We have six calf milk replacers, all made in Britain, that are suited to different farm systems and targets. These include Energised Calf Milk, Skim Powders and Whey Powders. All six of our calf milk replacers contain a neonate package made up of two additives, EarlyBite® and SafMannan®, which encourages early intakes of feed and supports the immune system. This neonate package is also found in our Calf Sprinter+ Pellets and EarlyBite Lamb Pellets, providing a partnership between milk and feed.

In addition, we also have our own lamb milk replacer, Lactovis. Lactovis is of high specification and is produced through using the best quality milk proteins and high tech manufacture. Lactovis achieves above average performance and provides lambs with the best start to life. It mixes instantly in cold or warm water and is available as a 20kg free-flow or 10kg instant.
