Product Line

LifeLaunch 4C is a milk-based calf starter designed to improve early solid feed intake in early life. This translates to increase average daily gain (ADG) and reduce post-weaning growth slump.  Just a handful of LifeLaunch 4C each day until weaning launches a cow’s lifetime performance. 
Trial Results & How to Feed

The research trial recently completed showed that calves fed 6L of milk replacer and LifeLaunch 4C™ ate over 50% more solid feed before weaning, grew 16% faster from birth to weaning, and had over 200g/d greater average daily gain during the weaning period, compared to those not fed LifeLaunch 4C™. LifeLaunch 4C™ is designed to get calves onto solid feed sooner and gaining weight faster, while helping to avoid the post weaning slump.

How to Feed on Farm

  • Provide 150 Grams of LifeLaunch 4C from birth to weaning (2 black scoops, or 1 cup measure)

  • When calves are consuming 150g of LifeLaunch 4C, provide your existing calf starter in addition to allow ad-libitum intake.

Bio-Force® Acidified Milk Replacer is acidified with a unique blend of high quality organic acids which effectively lower the pH of the milk. Dairy producers feeding properly acidified milk replacer at recommended levels for enhanced growth, report that calves grow faster and are healthier compared with feeding conventional nonacidified milk or milk replacer.
