EUROVO is fifty years old, and has long since made its mark on the veal calf market. Its expertise is recognised both by the technical and economic performance it achieves and through the quality labels it has been awarded: SDVF charter, GMP+, non-GMO ingredients* and approval for the production of veal under various quality labels (“Les Vitelliers” certified, Label Rouge, etc.).

EUROVO veal calf milk replacers: your guarantee of performance
Our high performance : ranges: PRESTILAC and OPTILAC
PRESTILAC and OPTIILAC are traditional milk replacer ranges made from easily digested skimmed milk powder and dairy products. They are designed for the fattening of superior quality veal calves.
Our great value performance : BABILAC and LACTOMIX
BABILAC and LACTOMIX milk replacer ranges are made from whey, to offer you great value performance. These milk replacers have been created to meet the technical and economic objectives of today’s veal farming. Our R&D department works in close partnership and constant dialogue with those involved in veal calf research (breeding institute, INRA – national institute for agronomic research, etc.).
We have developed our innovative LACTOMIX range of milk replacers with both the animals’ and the farmers’ well-being as priorities. The range is based on a synergy between milk replacers and fibre-based feeds. This totally new technique not only maximises growth rates, carcass quality and the animals’ well-being but also improves working conditions for farmers.
Innovation : the SBS nutritional package, Safety Boost Starter
Reducing the use of medication in calf rearing is an increasingly pressing issue. It is one of Lactalis Feed’s major priorities. The company took the decision to stop producing medicated milk replacers at the end of 2012.
How can we reinforce young calves’ immune systems?
The R&D department at Lactalis feed understands customer needs, and works to provide innovative, effective solutions. It has developed a milk replacer which includes the nutritional package SBS, enriched with immunoglobulin to boost calf health and prevent diarrhoea. SBS starter milk replacer (Safety Boost Starter) has proved its effectiveness within the Lactalis Feed veal calf network, reducing veterinary treatment by one third, and the cost of this treatment by 40%.
Having gained a wealth of experience working closely with our partner clients, we now lead the way in modern techniques which guarantee professional veal calf production facilities their profitability and performance.
EUROVO technical reference data: demonstrating great performance
EUROVO’s ranges have further demonstrated their relevance in the veal calf industry through a catalogue of technical data illustrating the performance of various feed programmes and veal rearing techniques on our clients’ sites.
The data covers all of our veal calf milk replacer ranges, with Prestilac, Optilac, Babilac and Lactomix, and has been collected from regions across France, including Brittany, Aquitaine, Midi-Pyrénées, Rhône-Alpes and Franche-Comté.
