Smooth dietary changes for growers

Ensure a healthy, productive future for your incoming cattle with a smooth transition programme for dietary changes and stress management. A successful receiving period is critical to the animal’s overall health, helping growers to maintain target intakes and growth rates throughout the feeding period.

How to recognise

Abrupt changes in a grower’s diet can result in reduced intake of dry matter, less rumination, altered manure and overall poor performance in the days after transition.

The impact on the farmer

Drastic changes in diet can lead to economic losses for the farmer, with more days needed on feed to reach target weights.
