To breed a quality, but econimical vaible heifer, which will later be a higher productive dairy cattle, the most important thing is to raise female calves from the birth. With quality nutrition, followed with respect of welfare of animals, genetics is also important.
In rearing offspring it is necessary to consider:
- Colostrum management
- Concentration and kind of milk replacements
- Phase approach
- Supplementation with solid food
Because of the importance of rearing offspring, Fanon has devised with complete feeding plan that encourages calves on earlier consumation, in as often intervals as possible. This encourages natural imune defence, and enables wasting energy on growth and less on the fight with enviroment challenges. In addition, Fanons advisors are giving highest support in nutrition and farm management.
