New factory will help MaxCare meet rising demand

By Dairy News

MAXUM FOODS is now producing its MaxCare range of infant animal milk replacers through a state-of-the-art facility in Laverton, Victoria.

The MaxCare products are formulated to give the best possible results for farmers, building a strong foundation for healthy growth and animal nutrition, according to National Sales Manager, Tom Newton.

“Our priority is to ensure that young animals, which are the future of our enterprises, are at their full potential when they get to weaning,” Mr Newton said.

“This sets them up for improved productivity throughout their life. We need to produce products that deliver the best possible results for the animal whilst still being functional and easy to use for the farmer.”

Mr Newton said the new facility gave Maxum the capacity to not only meet growing demand but also to look at other markets.

“More exciting is the capability it gives us from a QA perspective allowing us to really lift the bar in what customers can expect from milk replacers.”

Mr Newton said the team at Maxum work hard to help their farmers build strong businesses, which will in turn foster a healthy dairy industry.

“We support those who support us and we want to see our business partners and their animals thrive,” he said.

“Maximising your calf growth rates maximises the long-term productivity and profitability of your herd.”

The MaxCare range has been in market since 2014 and was created to deliver maximum growth, nutrition and health support for infant animals in the first few weeks.

Farmers can choose from Essential, Premium or Ultimate Calf Milk Replacers which provide different levels of performance depending on the particular needs of your animals.

MaxCare is also a major supply partner of the Cows Create Careers program which offers dairy industry education and highlights career opportunities to secondary students across Australia.
