Shur-Gain Beef Nutrition

Optimizing Performance with VealScore

Shur-Gain’s veal programs help meet the nutritional needs of veal calves through all stages of production. Our standard supplements provide adequate nutrition to produce a healthy calf with economical average daily gains and improved feed efficiency.

Optimal performance can be achieved through the Shur-Gain VealScore program. This program uses the combination of ingredient, animal and environmental factors to formulate veal rations. Using these inputs more precisely predicts veal calf nutritional requirements and performance.

Red-Veal – Shur-Gain’s Red-Veal feeding program is designed to promote optimal weight gain and feed conversions in veal calves being fed on high grain diets. Red-Veal is formulated to provide a palatable blend of proteins sources, and is fortified with vitamins and minerals to meet the needs of veal calves fed high-grain rations.

Opti-Veal – Opti-Veal is a nutrient dense, scientifically formulated, commercially tested, and palatable feeding program. This program offers the science of VealScore; Shur-Gain’s exclusive formulation tool, specifically designed to meet the nutrient requirements of veal calves.

Cow/Calf Feed

At Shur-Gain, we know the importance of carefully formulating minerals and ingredients that provide highly bioavailability nutrients.

Proper levels of minerals must be fed to beef cows during all stages of their production. Deficiencies of minerals can result in many significant problems, including reduced feed efficiency, poor reproductive performance, metabolic disorders such as retained placentas, compromised immune function, weight loss and many others. Providing the correct mineral balance and accounting for bioavailability is critical for optimum performance. Minerals are a vital component of any successful beef cow feeding program. Both macro and trace minerals play a substantial role in energy metabolism, growth, enzyme production, bone formation, milk production and other functions.

For the Cow/Calf herd, Shur-Gain has several minerals and products designed to meet the nutrient requirements of beef cattle. From creep feeding to gestating feeding, contact Daryl or Dianne (see contact info below) for more information on choosing the best product for your needs. Customized solutions are also available.

Feedlot Feed

Shur-Gain’s Feedlot Starter programs help provide the nutritional support to overcome stressors during this critical period. Our standard supplements and minerals then provide adequate nutrition for the remainder of the production period to produce healthy, economical average daily gains and improved feed efficiency.

Optimal cattle performance can be achieved through the Shur-Gain Perfo-Beef program. This program uses the combination of ingredient, animal and environmental factors to formulate feedlot rations. Using these inputs more precisely predicts nutrient requirements and performance of cattle. Have our specialized team work for you.
