Hand rearing formula blend. Nutricore has a similar nutritional foundation as Neocare, however is a blend rather than an extruded formula. While blends are not as easily digested as extruded formulas', they are much faster and easier to mix. Includes the same quality Vetafarm Australian ingredients and quality measures, but with a different processing technique, leading to a difference in the way the products mix and perform. Nutricore will be less expensive and faster to mix than Neocare, but will not be completely comparable in growth rates for sensitive species or very early stage babies (under 7 days).

Nutricore has a similar nutritional foundation as Neocare, however is a "blend" rather than an extruded formula. While blends are not as easily digested as extruded formulas', they are much faster and easier to mix. This provides two options to our Australian clients, both of which will include the same quality Vetafarm Australian ingredients and quality measures, but with different processing techniques, leading to a difference in the way the products mix and perform.

Additional info
Feeding Guide Please note the below directions are a guide only. If baby's crops are emptying faster than normal, add slightly more Nutricore powder to your mix. If baby's crops are emptying slowly, slightly more water can be added for a thinner consistency. IMPORTANT NOTES Always ensure food is fed to babies at a temperature of between 38-41C. Never reuse a premixed batch of formula from a previous feed. Mix Nutricore fresh every feed. Always ensure feeding utensils are thoroughly cleaned and sterilised between feeds. Always weigh your babies at the beginning of each day before their first feed to ensure they are gaining weight. Always mix well to achieve a uniform consistency, cool to feeding temperature (38-41 ?C) and feed fresh to babies. NEONATE FEEDING RECOMMENDATION (HATCHING TO DAY 5) Feed a combination of Spark Liquid and Synbiotic solution only, for the first 24 hours or until your baby passes the meconium (first dropping). After the first dropping, mix 1 heaped teaspoon of Nutricore with 5 teaspoons of hot, pre-boiled water to make a very thin solution, then feed this solution for the next 24 hours. This solution can be gradually thickened over the following 3 days until the Standard feeding dilution is achieved as outlined below. STANDARD FEEDING RECOMMENDATION (BABIES OVER 5 DAYS) Mix 1 heaped teaspoon of Nutricore Hand Rearing Formula with 3 teaspoons of hot, pre-boiled water. This consistency will be used from day 5 through to when the bird weans onto an adult diet. TRANSITION FEEDING A Nutricore mix of very thin consistency should be fed to babies for at least the first 24 hours when transitioning from another brand of formula or when pulling babies older than 5 days from the nest for hand raising. This is to ensure babies remain hydrated and allows a period for adjustment to the new diet. The recommendation for this transition period is 1 heaped teaspoon of Nutricore with 5 teaspoons of hot, pre-boiled water.
