Fiber Factor

Dairy Calf | Bottle Calf Series

This feeding system is designed to slowly and safely wean baby calves from milk or milk replacer to solid feed.  It gradually adjusts from the liquid to the solid feed ration as necessary to grow a healthy rumen and a robust calf.  When fed on this system and properly cared for, calf performance has been exceptional and death loss is reduced. For best results, it’s recommended to feed all three stages in the sequence specified. 

Fiber Factor®:

This is a densified or pelleted bio-fiber substance with multiple applications that are the results of the patent pending Crop Residue Augmentation and Nutritional Enrichment (C. R. A. N. E.) process.  This process improves the handling, physical characteristics, nutrient profile, moisture holding ability, and the digestibility of bio-fiber.  When the Fiber Factor® is combined with other feedstuffs and or, vitamins and minerals, several unique, safe and efficacious products were developed for multiple species.

FF Stage 1 LW AP OTM: Contains Fiber Factor®. A complete feed for transitioning dairy & beef bottle calves to dry feed from day 3 until weaned and eating 4 lbs of this stage per day. It contains proteins that target specific amino acids that improve growth and development of growing calves. Also contains Availa 4 organic trace minerals that are proven to be more available to the animal than the same inorganic sources. A high level of Vitamins and minerals to address for low intakes at this age.

FF Stage 2 AP OTM: Contains Fiber Factor®. Complete For calves that have reached 4lbs/day of stage #1. This ration should be fed through week 16 or as a first creep for calves with cows on pasture. It is a complete feed that will work well for calves between 250 and 400 lbs. It contains proteins that target specific amino acids that improve growth and development of growing calves. Also contains Availa 4 organic trace minerals that are proven to be more available to the animal than the same inorganic sources. A high level of Vitamins and minerals to address for low intakes at this age.

FF Stage 3 AP OTM: Contains Fiber Factor®. This ration is for the second step of the Pasture Creep Feed program or the 3rd stage for dairy steer/heifer programs. This has been a proven program for beef calves on pasture though weaning up to 900# as well as bull development. Medication options provide the “flex” to move cattle that are on the “base” ration to a weaning/transition and bull development. Dairy Beef should move off of this ration at 600# and get to a more aggressive ration. Dairy heifers being developed should stay on this diet until 4 months prior to breeding. Some grass hay or roughage may be included to “hold” cattle at all times. It contains proteins that target specific amino acids that improve growth and development of growing calves. Also contains Availa 4 organic trace minerals that are proven to be more available to the animal than the same inorganic sources.

Animal performance is not guaranteed by feeding of specific rations.  Changes in composition of feeds, methods of feed, environment, and general management will affect performance
