Sunglo® Feed Calf Developer

Sunglo® dealer in Oklahoma - 56 Feed Co in Newkirk, OK

Sunglo® Show Calf Developer is a great option when you're looking to increase bulk and finish in your show cattle due to it's high fiber and high energy inclusion. A great choice when jackpotting or as a transition between Sunglo® Calf Grower and Finisher

 Starting Calves on Developer:

  • At the start of the feeding period, fill calves on hay and gradually introduce Sunglo® Show Calf Developer over time the first day, divided into two equal feedings.
  • Increase feed by 1-1.5 lbs. per day, with corresponding decreases in hay until full feed intake is achieved.
  • Once calves are on full feed, Sunglo® Show Calf Developer should be hand fed in equal feedings twice a day.
  • Transition slowly from one ration to another to minimize risk of digestive upsets.

On Full Feed:

  • Feed should be completely consumed before next feeding. Do not allow feed to build up in bunk and get moldy.
  • Remove any feed not consumed and reduce the amount of feed in proportion to the amount left over.
  • Similarly, increase the amount of feed when feed is completely consumed before the next feeding, but limit this increase to one pound or less per feeding.

Feeding Tips:

Slowing Rate of Gain:

If calves are gaining too rapidly, it may be necessary to use one of the following options:

  • Decrease the daily allotment of Sunglo® Show Calf Feed by 2-4 lbs.



Difficult Finishing:

Some large-frame calves may require longer finishing periods or increased energy density in the finishing ration to achieve the desired finish.
