Nutricore was formulated by avian veterinarians to provide exceptional nutritional balance, supporting optimal growth, feather development and immune function for baby birds. It is an ideal formula from hatching to weaning.
This product contains 13 vitamins and minerals, 9 strains of good bacteria and 7 digestive enzymes.
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 and Nutricore still contains all of the nutrients required for baby birds to thrive. This provides two options to our clients, both of which will include the same Vetafarm Australian ingredients and quality measures, but with different processing techniques, leading to a difference in the way the products mix and perform.
Vetafarm continues to recommend Neocare as our flagship formula option for hand rearing, particularly in the case of neonatal babies and difficult to raise species. Nutricore is a lower cost formula, is faster to mix and delivers all of the nutrition required, but will not be completely comparable in growth rates for sensitive species or very early stage babies (under 7 days).
