Bob Bell talks about the upcoming calf rearing season

Loe talks to Fiber Fresh Feeds national sales manager Bob Bell about the impending calf rearing season and best practice plans for farmers. Bell explains that his company’s fibre product promotes proper calf nutrition and a calf’s supplemental diet can have a major impact on the animal’s utilisation of pasture. Bell encourages farmers to carefully plan portion and nutritional management ahead of time. He admits that some farmers will prefer to focus on rapid yet cost-effective weight gain. Bell explains that a balanced fibre diet will help calves wean and move onto pasture without becoming too heavy. He recommends Fiber Fresh Feeds’ FiberStart as a cost effective supplement for calves.
