Quality Milk Replacer Products
For over 40 years, NRV, Inc. has been holding ourselves to the highest standard. With our beginnings in the veal milk industry, our focus has expanded to include dairy herd milk, as well as
Kid and Lamb milk replacers. Even though our focus has expanded, our attention to detail and extremely high standards have remained the same. We are able to hold ourselves to the highest of standards because of our laboratory.
All incoming ingredients are tested in our state of the art, onsite laboratory. Using wet chemistry, allowing our nutritionists develop formulas with the most accurate nutritional information. In addition to testing every ingredient before it is put into production, we also test every batch of milk replacer before it leaves the plant.
Even with one of the most advanced laboratories in the industry, we feel that it is not enough.
We also have a 1,400 head veal research facility located in Northern Indiana. Here we use and run trials with all of our products before they are made available to our customers, so that we can ensure we are providing them with a product that is effective and is not just fairy dust. With four barns we are able to have four treatment groups, allowing us to gather the most information possible from each trial. We also like to run trials with our customers, to see how our products work in the field. Field trials allow us to see where we need to improve, what information that we need to provide, and what is actually practical and economical to use. All trials are overseen by our Calf Specialists.
An NRV Calf Specialist isn’t just another salesperson. They do not just learn about products from a few sales meetings and by reading some pamphlets. They actually use them. Many of them feed calves, wash their boots, and then head out to visit customers. They know the struggles of raising calves and are at the forefront of the newest research and products.
