WhY FeEd CoPrIcE?
We passionately believe goodness on the inside shows on the outside and most importantly delivers the best results.
Every ingredient in CopRice feed is selected for its nutritional value and is developed to meet the specific dietary
needs of animals across their life stages. No fillers only 100% goodness ensures your livestock thrive on CopRice.
CoPrIcE DaIrY NuTrItIoN
Our ruminant nutrition specialists have developed high quality feeds to meet the needs of newborn calves through to
high performing cows. Combining Australian cereal grains and rice bran with research-tested nutrition, field-proven
studies and industry leading quality assurance programs, we deliver nourishment for optimum health and productivity.
CoPrIcE CaLf StArTeR PeLlEtS
A highly palatable starter feed that ensures easy transition of calves from liquid to solid feed from a few days old until
progression to pasture at around 12 weeks of age. These slightly sweet, protein rich and nutrient dense pellets, provide the
nutrition essential to support immune function and efficient growth, whilst encouraging proper rumen development for
lifetime benefits. Rumen buffer reduces the risk of acidosis whilst lasalocid sodium helps improve liveweight gains and feed
conversion efficiency, and aids in the control of coccidiosis.
NuTrItIoN ThAt StAcKs Up
Wholegrain rice is gluten free and a great source of
easily digestible starch. Starch is a source of fuel for
rumen microbes. It is combined with selected
quality wholegrains including wheat, barley and
maize, to provide a feed rich in available starch to
support calf rumen development and provide
optimum energy for growth and weight gain.
Nutritious soybean and canola meals, lupins and
field peas are great sources of bypass protein,
which is digested in the small intestine rather than
the rumen giving superior nutrient availability.
Proteins provide amino acids which contribute to a
healthy immune system, and are the building blocks
vital for muscle growth and development.
An effective rumen buffer helps stabilise rumen pH,
improving fibre digestion and significantly reducing
the risk of acidosis (grain poisoning). Acidosis can
reduce feed intake leading to weight loss, it can
also compromise energy production and cause
permanent rumen damage.
Rice bran is highly palatable, rich in digestible fibre,
and is a source of nutritious oil which provides an
additional energy source to support the growth
of healthy calves and heifers. Improving energy
availability in the diet can promote protein
synthesis to assist immune health and weight gain.
Calcium and phosphorus are critical for frame
development, strong bones and teeth, and healthy
metabolism. Electrolytes including salt, potassium
and magnesium, are vital for balancing body fluids
and maintaining nervous system health.
A versatile ingredient that provides sweetness
for improved palatability and encourages feed
intake in young calves. Molasses supports digestion
by providing natural sugars as nourishment for the
rumen microbe population.
Vitamin A benefits eye health, whilst vitamin D3
aids calcium absorption. Vitamin C helps support
the immune system, whilst vitamin E plays a role
in cardiovascular, circulatory and neuromuscular
functions. B vitamins are vital for metabolism and
the efficient generation of energy for growth.
Selenium is important for immunity and zinc
for tissue repair and health. Copper helps
strengthen bones, with manganese assisting
cartilage development and reproductive function.
Cobalt is a component of vitamin B12 which is
required for energy production.
Lasalocid sodium helps improve liveweight gains
and feed conversion efficiency. It aids in the control
of coccidiosis and reduction of faecal shedding of
coccidia Eimeria spp., which if left untreated can
result in diarrhoea, dehydration, weight loss and
in acute cases death.
Yeast helps improve fibre digestion, promotes feed
intake and enhances the absorption of nutrients.
It is beneficial for rumen microflora and stabilising
pH for improved rumen function and performance.
Improved feed intake and enhanced fibre digestion
assists growth to meet optimum weaning weights.

NOTE: If using supplementary selenium do not use at the same time as any other selenised fertiliser, prill
or product, and do not exceed the stated dose and frequency without consulting a veterinarian.
Store under cover, off the floor, in a cool, well ventilated and dry area, away from direct sunlight.
FeEd TrAnSiTiOn GuIdE
When changing feeds
it is important to do so
gradually. To ensure
your livestock adjust to
different tastes and
textures, we recommend
a three week transition,
as shown below.

• Ensure livestock always have access to clean, cool and fresh water.
• During periods of poor pasture quality additional supplementary feeding will be necessary to achieve liveweight targets.
• CopRice Dairy Calf Starter Pellets are not a complete feed, they are to be fed to calves in conjunction with free access to
straw, hay and/or other dry forages.
