GAIN RumenCare Calf Nut

GAIN RumenCare Calf Nut is a palatable 16% protein feed. GAIN RumenCare Calf Nut will take good ‘care’ of calves during and after the critical turnout stage. GAIN RumenCare Calf Nut contains a unique calf nutrition and health pack included called RumiDrive.

What is RumiDrive?

RumiDrive is to support calf performance at grass and ensure lifetime productivity is not compromised. Keeping calf performance on track at grass is crucial to achieving targets throughout heifer development. This sets the animal up for achieving targets at breeding, calving and ultimately enables good long-term productivity. The combination of weaning and turning out to lush grass puts the still developing rumen under stress and the lifetime productivity of the calf. RumiDrive has 4 key elements; Buffers, B Vitamins, Proviflore C and Yeast.
