Are you looking for an option to wean/start, grow or finish a set of calves but don’t want to have to start up the tractor and feedwagon and the tractor or skid loader to load the feed? You also would like to save on some hay and not have to feed as much or any while starting or feeding out a set of cattle?? We have a couple self fed options available that are fed through a self feeder, to you as a producer and cattle feeder, but we want to bring to light and inform you here of a product that we have, called CPM Momentum. The CPM Momentum line of feeds is formulated to be fed through a self feeder in a pasture or pen setting.
The CPM Momentum line of feeds is very unique to the industry in that the ingredients, which include rolled corn, DDG’s, a vitamin and trace mineral pack, and a one of a kind forage pellet as well allow for a unique and game changing option for self feeding. Each step in the CPM Momentum step up program also has the option of Bovatec to be added to the formula, which is an ionophore that helps the cattle consuming this feed be more efficient in converting feed to red meat and muscle.
CPM Momentum Starter
The CPM Momentum line consists of a step up program consisting of the CPM Momentum Starter, CPM Momentum Grower, and CPM Momentum Finisher as well as the transition steps in between each if the producer and our nutrition advisor so decides that they would be a good fit. Whether you are wanting to feed out a set of calves, put some weight on some bred heifers or feed out some cull cows this program will work for you. Did we mention that throughout each stage of the CPM Momentum feeding program you will be able to save on hay as you do NOT need to feed hay along with the Momentum? You ask how this can be safe to be fed in a self fed situation with both rolled corn and DDG’s in the formula? The unique forage pellet that is included in each step provides enough scratch to the rumen as well as enough fiber to keep the gut working and also keeps the manure consistent. The amount of the forage pellet is decreased as we move past the starter to the grower and finisher phases allowing for a higher fat, lower protein and lower fiber formula to more efficiently grow and finish cattle.
The CPM Momentum line of feeds:
CPM Momentum Starter 13% Protein 4% Fat 16% Fiber
CPM Momentum Grower 13% Protein 5.5% Fat 16% Fiber
CPM Momentum Finisher 12% Protein 5.5% Fat 9% Fiber
The CPM Momentum line has been successfully fed in numerous situations over the years. Depending on your goals and your needs, our highly trained nutrition advisors will help recommend the best step for you and your cattle to start with as well as partnering with you as a producer to successfully and efficiently grow and finish cattle.
