Blossom Hi-Spec is a whey-based calf milk replacer using Imunopro® as its base. Imunopro® is a unique ultrafiltration process concentrating the goodness of milk for the benefit of the calf with low heat to avoid denaturing vital proteins.

 

The product is then formulated with the appropriate levels of vitamins, minerals and amino acids to support up to 900g of average daily gain (ADG) when the calf is fed 900g of Blossom Hi-Spec CMR powder a day. Minimising limiting nutrients helps the calf to achieve skeletal growth alongside weight gain.

 

High protein from whey and moderate fat levels in Blossom Hi-Spec CMR supports quicker gastric emptying after a CMR feed. Anecdotally, we hear that this drives earlier meal consumption in the calf.

 

This calf milk replacer is also very easy to use and dissolves quickly in cold or warm water up to 40C.

Feeding Recommendations

+

-

Blossom Hi Spec is ideal for twice-a-day (TAD), once-a-day (OAD), and robotic-calf feeding systems. Calves should be consuming 1.5 kg of meal and double their birth weight before weaning.

 

Twice a day feeding regime:

Mix 150g of Blossom Hi-Spec CMR with 850 ml of water to make 1 litre.

*In the last week prior to weaning, reducing the milk replacer feed to 3L OAD using 450g of Blossom Hi-Spec should encourage further calf meal consumption.

 

Once a day feeding regime:

Mix 200g of Blossom Hi-Spec CMR with 800 ml of water to make 1 litre.

*Please Note: For the first week calves should be fed twice a day and gradually moved to OAD feeding

** In the last week prior to weaning, cutting the milk feed in half should encourage further calf meal consumption.

 

 

Fortifying whole milk with Blossom CMR

Add 50g of Blossom Hi-Spec powder per litre of whole milk fed*

*Please Note: Do not exceed more than 300 g of Blossom fed to a calf / day if fortifying. When you exceed 20% DM through fortification, this could potentially lead to excessive gas production and bloat in calves.

**In the last week prior to weaning, cutting the milk feed in half should encourage further calf meal consumption.
