AMPLI-Calf® feed, a blend of unique, proprietary ingredients, has revolutionized calf nutrition programs across the country. Calves fed AMPLI-Calf® Starter feed are more aggressively consuming feed at a younger age, and have the potential to grow faster, with more height, length and width than calves on other brands of feed. Now, the AMPLI-Calf® feed growth and development advantages can also be continued post-weaning with AMPLI-Calf® Grower feed, which is formulated for calves age 12-24 weeks.

AMPLI-Calf® Starter feed is available with 20 or 22 percent protein and both AMPLI-Calf® Starter and AMPLI-Calf® Grower feeds are now available from Land O'Lakes Purina Feed dealers.
