The path to high milk production requires proper nutrition through the entire growth cycle of the heifer. For the heifer this means Nutrena® DairyWay™ Grower / Developer.
After weaning, the calf enters the grower phase. During this phase the animal’s rumen is developing and forages are being introduced. The heifer enters the developer stage at 400 pounds (181 KG). During this phase the animal needs to develop the proper frame for high milk production. Protein and carbohydrates must be balanced properly to encourage frame growth instead of fat deposition and to maximize rumen function. Minerals and vitamins are needed to keep the animal healthy.
Years of research have gone into every bag of DairyWay™ Grower / Developer to ensure that heifers move quickly into the productive herd at the right size and with the right body frame for high milk production.
Please see the tag on the bag for important feeding information.
