Rapid weight gain

CALF weight gain during periods of stress such as weaning and turnout can be improved by using Calf Fast Finisher, says Col-Late.

The nutritional supplement supplies energy, minerals and amino acids that are essential for good health and weight gain, and act within hours of oral dosing, says the firm.

Col-Late suggests giving calves a single dose at weaning when nutritional stress can rapidly set in, and further dosing at turnout to make nutrients rapidly available.

Calf Fast Finisher costs about £35/litre and is available in one- or five-litre packs (01474-813999, fax 01474-812112).
