AMPLI-Calf® Starter is a blend of unique, proprietary ingredients available exclusively in calf starters from Land O’Lakes Purina Feed. When used as a key element in a well-managed calf nutritional program, AMPLI-Calf® Starter can optimize efficiency and calf growth rates and support immunity, thus contributing to an crease in profit potential.

In research trials, calves fed 20% texturized AMPLI-Calf® Starter had greater feed intake, gained more weight and grew taller than those fed a comparable diet without the technology.

The 12 week ADVANTAGE:

  Starter Intake   +11% | +26 lbs. 

  Hip Height   +3% | +1.2 inches  

  Weight Gain   +14% | +17 lbs.   

AMPLI-Calf®  Starter positively affects feed palatability, leading to greater feed intake earlier in the life of a calf, and throughout the first 12 weeks. The growth potential offered by AMPLI-Calf® Starter means calves may be ready for earlier weaning and ultimately greater, long-term milk production.
