Milk Replacer

VITEN® CWS offers all the benefits of a raw material for milk replacer:

  • Protein digestibility is 95% and therefore approximates that of milk protein.
  • Valued protein source as it is free of complex polysaccharides and anti-nutritional factors.
  • A major advantage of VITEN® CWS is its exceptional organoleptic qualities thanks to its neutral taste and odour. The product is thus well accepted by the calf even at high inclusion rates.
  • VITEN® CWS has a low ash content with an average iron content of 40 mg/kg which allows for use in milk replacers destined for veal calves production.
  • The product is easily dispersible resulting in good mixing characteristics.

VITEN® CWS can be incorporated in milk replacers at rates of 6 to 12%.
