Regul’Vo programme: optimise the combination of milk replacer and solid feed
The REGUL’VO tool allows you to put together a personalised, optimised feeding programme for breeding calves ideally combining milk replacers and young calf concentrate.
This programme takes three factors into consideration:
- The target age for the first calving in association with minimal growth during the birth, weaning, and 0–6 months stages
- The nutritional profile of young calf concentrates (feed unit, bypass proteins)
- The nutritional profile of the milk replacer (Net energy and digestible nitrogenous matter)
