A calf feeding program designed around lasting calf nutrition 

Investing in calf milk replacer, calf starter and grower feed can have a positive impact on their health and growth today and impact future lactation performance. Whether you want improved calf growth, to minimize weaning slumps, earn additional milk production or see a faster return on your investment, the AMPLI-CALF® Program can help you meet your farm goals and impact your bottom line potential.

Complete calf nutrition program infographicResearch shows that calves reach their genetic potential and achieve 6,588 pounds1 more milk through three lactations when fed all three steps of the AMPLI-CALF® Program. Each step delivers the specific nutrition calves need during their development, and all three steps are connected by a special blend of ingredients, including: 
  • Smell and flavor enhancers to help calves eat more
  • Energy to support growth
  • Prebiotics to support gut health and the immune system, so calves can use energy to grow
  • Highly digestible fiber to help maintain rumen development 
This all-inclusive calf feeding program has been carefully researched by Purina Animal Nutrition and tested by calf raisers across the country.
 
We’re delivering a more complete package of nutrients to the calf. By meeting the nutritional needs of our calves starting on day one, we can help growth frisky, thriving calves and prepare them for peak performance as a cow.
