A dairy farmer in Ecclefechan is using Axcelera-C has commented that his calves would not routinely be interested in solid feed up to 7 days of age. Having offered Axcelera-C from day 3 he is seeing earlier and greater feed intakes which he knows will be helping to develop the rumen.

When he moves his calves into the big pens, he ensures their dry matter intake increases by top dressing his starter feed with Axcelera-C. At this stage he feeds his calves twice daily and the Axcelera-C has always been consumed when they come to top up the feed.
