As part of our ongoing research to ensure that our customers get the best returns from their calves we are introducing a new milk powder – Wynngold Turbo Start
Turbo Start is a high quality calf milk powder designed to give your calves the best possible start in life. Turbo Start has been specially formulated to comply with the ‘LifeStart’ concept. Based on previous and ongoing research into how to get calves growing quickly and healthily, this concept is one that we feel can allow you to finish your calves faster than standard milk powders. Alongside specific management protocols, this milk can help you achieve your goal of raising profitable animals; maximising the return on your investment.
Turbo Start is a highly digestible whey based milk powder with excellent levels of oil needed to supply your calves with essential energy. This milk powder also has the additional benefits of high levels of Vitamin E to support immune function along with Greenline, a synergetic blend of ingredients designed to support optimum health and animal performance.
Specifically designed to be fed as part of an accelerated growth feeding program with a delicately balanced amino acid profile, this milk will allow you to safely feed at higher rates. Turbo Start is the perfect choice for anybody looking to unleash the genetic potential of their future herd.
