Eringold Milk Replacers - Giving calves the right start in life
25 years ago this year, Robert Mollan started out selling calf milk replacer for Schils BV Holland and over the years Robert has grown Eringold significantly and now along with his son Chris, Eringold Milk Replacers has expanded their portfolio to selling their three high quality Calf Milk replacers for both dairy and beef calves.
The Eringold range of milk replacers are packed full of quality ingredients to ensure that calves have enough energy and proteins to optimise their growth potential.
Their high levels of milk proteins along with a balanced amino acid profile ensure that our milk replacers are highly digestible to young calves thus improving rumen development and skeletal growth.
The first 12 weeks of a young calfs life is vitally important. Although a good quality concentrate and fresh straw should be readily available to a calf from as early as week 1, milk replacer is the main driving force for this development and growth.
Especially in young heifers, studies have demonstrated that increased energy and protein intake associated with higher levels of milk replacer feeding increases growth of mammary glands in heifer calves from two to eight weeks of age. The extent of development of mammary glands in heifers is important, because the number of mammary cells is a major factor limiting milk production so increased feeding of quality milk replacers at a young age in heifer calves should result in a higher milk yield when mature.
With calf disease and scour being a challenge on many farms, Eringold add in some extra ingredients to make sure that the calves have adequate protection with the addition of digestive aids and immunity support to help protect calves from digestive upsets and scours within their early stages of life. All of this combined with high levels of vitamins and minerals in all their milks means that the young calf is sure of the best possible start to life.
