FBN conducted a commercial feeding trial with 335 head of Angus-Holstein cross calves in Southwest Minnesota. There were two treatment groups: one group was being fed the FBN Profectus diet and the other was being fed a conventional ration balanced for NEg and crude protein. Calves were on feed an average of 382 days, growing from an average of 207 lbs on arrival to 1400 lbs.

About Boveta Nutrition:

Boveta Nutrition was co-founded by Rodney Jones and Dr. Monty Kerley to provide science-based improvements in cattle feeding in order to generate higher profits for farmers, producers and feedlot operators. Based on years of scientific research, Boveta created a patent-pending algorithm to identify diet deficiencies and create better formulated diets, incorporating targeted proteins that meet the energy and amino acid requirements of beef cattle and dairy cows. Research has shown that the Boveta system creates more efficient feed conversion and generates optimum milk production and lean carcass growth while reducing overfeeding, solid waste and methane output. This increases income over feed costs while creating sustainability. Boveta has also developed patent-pending software to assist in diet evaluation and correction and a patent-pending process for production of superior bypass protein products to enhance dairy and beef production.
