Beef Production

Before weaning

It is important that calves stay healthy. Beef calves are often raised together, which increases disease pressure and the risk of infections spreading. Improving milk and solid feed intake, alongside practices that improve intestinal health, result in fewer incidences of diarrhea, reduced medication cost, higher average daily gain and improved feed efficiency among the herd.

After weaning

Good quality feed is a must for high beef output. Only silage of excellent quality should be included in the diet.

Mycotoxins frequently occur even without clinical signs, hence the need to implement a mycotoxin risk management strategy.

Higher feed intake correlates with improved beef production.

Central to cattle health is a well-functioning rumen. High average daily gain hinges upon efficient digestion and the ruminal microflora.
