Investing in the future of your dairy means looking after your calves. Getting your calves off to a good start is essential to get them on track for a productive life. Inadequate nutrition in the early stages reduces the calf’s potential for meeting growth targets and her development into a successful dairy cow. We have a range of calf products suitable from a few days old through to entering the dairy.
The following protein balancers have been designed for you to be able to create calf blends utilising on farm cereal grain supplies but will deliver essential proteins, minerals and vitamins to give your calves a great start.
Our Intake Limiting System (ILS) feeds have been designed to regulate grain intake of growing heifers utilising low labour inputs. With ILS cattle tend to snack rather than having larger meals. This reduces the likelihood of grain poisoning/acidosis. Available as a complete grain blend or as a concentrate to be mixed with your own grain.
Dairy Lead Feeds
At Meningie Fodder we understand the importance of good transition management and feeding. Our transition blends or ‘Lead Feeds’ utilise up to date research to deliver a product that when used correctly will reduce the incidence of Milk Fever, Ketosis, Retained Placenta and other metabolic diseases.
Mineral Concentrates are a good way of ensuring your dairy cows are getting the minerals they need to meet the demands of lactation, maintain animal health and aid fertility. We have a range of mineral options available ranging from 20 gram trace powders to 500 gram inclusion mineral pellets.

Each dairy herd is different and has different requirements, thus we find individualised rations designed to specifically suit particular requirements give the best results.
Customised rations include Full Grain Blends or Protein Balancers.
Full Grain Blends are ready to use straight from the silo.
Protein Balancers are specifically created to complement cereal grains on farm to deliver proteins, minerals and additives while utilising existing grain supplies.
