Trouw Nutrition, the producer of Sprayfo calf milk replacers, has launched its nutrient-enriched formula with health-supporting benefits.
The improved product comes with a full Sprayfo Health Support Package of practical tools and information to help dairy farmers with the efficient rearing of strong healthy calves and manage their herd for lifetime performance.
Sprayfo's fortified formula contains ingredients that support healthy calf rearing in four ways: improving nutrient digestion; optimising gut pH; strengthening immunity; maintaining gut integrity. The product is based on either a highly soluble milk-based concentrate or on a concentrate that uses whey proteins to improve solubility and stability. This helps increase feed efficiency and absorption. Sprayfo's new formula also contains probiotics, prebiotics and short-chain fatty acids to strengthen the gut wall and the bacteria balance in the gut. This encourages a higher daily weight gain, having healthy animals and helps prevent weaning dips. Additionally it is enriched with organic acids and salts to optimise pH functionality throughout the digestive tract for better utilisation of protein.
Eile van der Gaast, Trouw Nutrition Product Manager Young Animal Feeds, said, "Our new Sprayfo formula has come as the result of years of dedication to the rearing of strong and healthy calves. We know that dairy farmers are constantly balancing a wide range of factors that impact on the long-term health of their herd and profitability of their farm. This means getting all the help they can by using the best science and advice available. That is why we are offering this enriched product with a full Sprayfo Health Support package, for immediate and future support."
