Maximize Gains During Fall Weaning

Updated: Aug 30, 2023

Value of Feeding Excell™ to Weaned and Receiver Cattle

Fall Weaning

Maximize gains during all time

high cattle markets. Don't let

opportunity pass you by with

your weaning program.

Feed yards will be dry which is not good news for immature cattle adapting to new diets and surroundings.

Plan now for the transition and help avoid this costly situation as much as possible.

The value of Excell™ involves the longer-term benefits seen when the stress of weaning and shipping is overcome by getting the calves on feed quickly:

Stimulating feed intake:

  • Brings the rumen microflora back to normal (stress can reduce the population to 10-15 percent of normal)

  • Improved rumen function reduces chance of acidosis and digestive upsets

  • Increased intake provides more nutrients for maintaining the immune system to fight off pathogen challenges

  • Increased intake and improved rumen function increase nutrients available for growth, development, and feed efficiency

Summer is really taking a toll on your cattle. Dry conditions leading to poor forage quality and high hay prices leading to early weaning with lightweight calves. Everyone needs to have top of mind knowledge for the value of feeding Excell™ to weaned and receiver cattle.

Considerable research has shown that stressed cattle on weaning/receiving rations that stimulate intakes 2-3 weeks post weaning, perform significantly better, are healthy and more profitable than those that are not.
