XTRACT® a suitable tool to support pre-weaning challenges in veal and replacement calves
In cattle farming, pre-weaning is a critical phase. During the first months of their life, young calves are prone to numerous stresses and challenges. Risks are increased by the fact that their digestive system is not fully developed and immune system is still immature.
In conventional farming systems, two types of calves have to undergo this challenging period: Veal Calves (VC) and Replacement Calves (RC). The first type is reared to produce veal meat and the second type is destined to become either a milking cow or a young bull. Breeding and feeding practices are slightly different between the two types of animal.
What makes XTRACT® different is its ability to act at the physiological level. Growth improvement is only the consequence.
