Freemantle’s 18% Calf Muesli is a balanced ration especially formulated to offer your calves a complete supplement when combined with milk and milk replacement products. Our customers tell us: 

“We began using Freemantle Stock Feeds Calf Muesli five years ago.  We find that it provides our calves with a really good balance of ingredients, and they “get onto it” very quickly. We use it on calves from a week old to between 6-12 weeks and our calves have beautiful shiny coats. We have trialled several different products, but always go back to FSF Calf Muesli.”
