Ruminant feed formulation: made to meet specific needs

A cow’s nutritional needs are evolving during its life. A growing heifer will not require the same nutritional intake as an adult lactating cow. Adapt the diet of the dry cow or of the heifer with Vitalac feed and minerals. Find everything you need in Vitalac’s cow feed section.

Adopting a balanced feed adapted to the needs of your animals allows you to increase the profitability of your farm. It also reduces the risk of loss, disease, parasites and deficiencies in each of your animals.

With Vitalac, you can prepare specific feed for all the important stages in the life of your cows.

Animals that are stressed by weaning? Our cattle feed professionals are at your disposal for all these problems to advise you on suitable feeds and/or feed supplements.
