    It is typically cheaper to feed milk replacer to dairy calves than it is to feed saleable whole milk. Milk replacers are made from byproducts of the milk manufacturing industry. Whey, the major protein source for milk replacers, is a byproduct of cheese manufacturing and is usually much cheaper than other milk protein sources such as casein and skim milk. The use of high quality, lower cost ingredients makes milk replacer a more economic choice than whole milk.
    We,Azurite Calf Nutrition Private Limited use Human Grade Ingredients the finest ingredients for high digestibility and consistency in our products. These human grade ingredients include whey, oils and fats. Insisting on high quality fat ingredients in our milk replacers lets us incorporate the highest digestible energy to achieve maximum growth and performance.azurite108@yahoo.in
