S18.2 The effect of increasing ash content in milk replacer on the technical performance and health of rearing calves

Trial conducted at research centre "De Haar", where we compared three levels of ash content (6.5%, 8.5%, 10.5%) in calf milk replacers, to test their effect on performance and health. We concluded that too low or too high ash contents have negative effects on growth. 

S18.1 The influence of protein content in milk replacer on the growth performance of rearing calves

Trial conducted at research centre "De Haar", where we compared three levels of protein content (17%, 21%, 25%) in calf milk replacers, to test their effect on growth. We concluded that increasing the protein content has a positive diminishing effect on growth. 

S14.3 Prestarter including Schils SuperSpray

Description of a trial conducted on 120 piglets, under supervision of the University of Leuven. Feeding Schils SuperSpray resulted into more growth and better feed conversion.

S14.2 Schils piglet milk replacer - Pigipro 1 Milk-Y

Description of a trial conducted on 156 piglets and 11 sows, under supervision of the University of Leuven. Feeding Pigipro 1 Milk-Y milk replacer resulted into less mortality, higher growth and more homogenous groups.

S14.1 The effect of an intensive feeding schedule on growth and solid feed intake of a calf

A comparison between two feeding schedules (35kg and 50kg), conducted on trial farm “De Haar”. More intensive schedules resulted into better growth results, more bodyweight and higher solid feed intake.

S14.1 The effect of using a CMR with or without skimmed milk powder (SMP) in an intensive feeding schedule on growth and solid feed intake of a calf

There is almost no difference in growth and solid feed intake per period between the feeding of a CMR with (45%) or without SMP.

S13.1 Intenstive Start - Calves

The results of a trial conducted on three different groups of calves. Feeding more CMR or more grams per liter at the start will result in more growth and better dry feed intake. We recommend a concentration of 150gr CMR + 1L water and more liters during the first 4 weeks.
