Sprayfo Delta Calf Milk Replacer
Sprayfo Delta high fat calf milk replacer mixes the best of whole milk with the best of calf milk replacers (CMRs), providing all the benefits of whole milk feeding with guaranteed consistency.
High energy curding CMR for optimal performance and fast growth rates
Improves future robustness of the animal
Osmolality similar to cow’s milk - improves digestion and reduces risk of scours
Balanced mineral composition to meet calf requirements
Optimises organ development, especially of the mammary gland parenchymal tissue
Improves long term productivity – increased meat yield for beef, more lactations for dairy
Consistent quality and composition from batch to batch
Sprayfo Delta calf milk replacer is a curding (casein-based) product, scientifically formulated for performance and growth. We call it energised calf milk.
What makes Sprayfo Delta your best choice of calf milk replacer?
High fat, low lactose content
Based on the composition of whole milk, Sprayfo Delta is higher in fat than any other CMR available in New Zealand. It also contains a balanced nutrient supply (vitamins and minerals) for optimal growth and development.
It is >95% digestible
The true measure of a quality CMR is the ability of the young calf to absorb nutrients contained in the CMR and to use these for growth and development. Sprayfo Delta is highly digestible, meaning you get better value for your money
The osmolality of Sprayfo Delta is the closest to whole milk
The osmolality of cow’s milk (whole milk) is close to 300mOsm/kg, which is optimal for the absorption and digestion of nutrients by calves.
Sprayfo Delta has an osmolality of 350mOsm/kg when mixed at the recommended rate of 135g/L. In contrast, other milk replacers have levels about 400mOsm/kg, some closer to 600mOsm.
A milk replacer with high osmolality (above 500mOsm/kg) may affect osmosis and hence present challenges to calves, including scouring and inflammation of the gut.
You may choose to feed calves once or twice daily, depending on your operation and objectives.
We recommend twice daily feeding for getting calves off to the best start – higher initial average daily gain (ADG) and a routine that is closer to how a calf would naturally feed.
Advantages of twice daily feeding for calves
Easier to feed larger total volume over two feeds
Can achieve higher initial average daily growth (ADG) rates due to the ability to feed larger total volume and grams/calf/ day
More natural; closer to how a calf would feed from its mother
Advantages of once daily feeding for calves
Faster rumen development
Less labour intensive
