Grober® Gro-Tech II Milk Replacer
For Optimum Health & Growth In Dairy Calves
Net Weight: 20 kg Product #: 400021
Gro-Tech II Milk Replacer is designed to provide calves with a proper blend of highly digestible nutrients to obtain significant average daily gains. Gro-Tech II is more suited to calves in climate controlled housing or during the summer when maintenance requirements are lower. To optimize calf growth, a high protein to fat ratio, as well as a combination of highly available minerals, allows this highly developed milk replacer to provide the right nutrients to young calves to meet their needs in the pre-ruminant stage, while properly supporting the transition to a grain diet through elevated protein and a gradual weaning program.
