Calculate the Potential Value of Increasing Your Calves’ ADG

Calculate the Potential Value of Increasing Your Calves’ ADG

Want to feed fewer heifers without impacting milk production? Or maybe you’re looking for a faster return on your calf program? No matter your herd goals, what you feed your calves and heifers can help you get there.

Research has shown that improved ADG during early life improves first lactation milk production1

Use the slider bar to calculate the potential value of increasing your calves’ average daily gain (ADG). Get feed recommendations to help you close the gap between where you are and where you want to be.

Ask your Purina calf and heifer specialist how improved ADG can help you to:

Move heifers into the milking herd sooner. Lower age at first calving by meeting growth goals.
Feed only the heifers you need. Opportunity to reduce the number of replacement heifers needed to meet herd goals.
Realize your ROI. Find efficiencies and increase milk production for improved profitability.

1 Research from Cornell University (Soberon et al., 2012; J. Dairy Sci. 95:783-793) showed that each 0.1 lb increase in prepubertal ADG (from 0.7 – 2.7 lb/hd/d) resulted in 328 lb more first lactation milk yield.
