The full potential program includes a 26 to 28% all-milk protein milk replacer that includes a soluble fiber technology. When combined with a high-quality starter, your calves will eat more and achieve optimal growth potential from what they eat.

Cow's Match® Calf Milk Replacer
Land O’Lakes Animal Milk Products re-shaped the industry when Cow’s Match® launched in 2001. Since then, we have continued to develop new full potential milk replacers for customers containing proprietary technologies that help achieve a calf’s genetic potential.
Cow's Match® WarmFront® and ColdFront® Calf Milk Replacers
Feeding a calf to its full potential requires getting the right amount of nutrition delivered in the calf’s diet. Intake is most often the limiting factor. More frequent daily feedings, feeding higher amounts of milk replacer, and automatic feeders are excellent ways to deliver full potential feeding. Cow’s Match® WarmFront® and ColdFront® calf milk replacers are ideally suited for any full potential feeding program and represent a new way to approach calf nutrition.
In cooler temperatures, calves require more dietary energy for maintenance of body condition, optimal growth and immune function. Cow’s Match® ColdFront® calf milk replacer helps address periods of cold stress. With the addition of WarmFront®, this two-phase system of feeding is designed to be more cost-efficient in meeting the calf’s needs for full potential growth and future productivity potential.
Cow’s Match® WarmFront® formula calf milk replacer is formulated with a unique combination of carbohydrates correctly balanced for when temperatures moderate.
In warm weather conditions, calves’ energy requirements for maintenance are reduced. Cow’s Match® WarmFront® calf milk replacer also provides the most optimal protein-to-energy ratio milk replacer when cold stress is no longer a factor. WarmFront® features all-milk protein, an enhanced fatty acid profile, L-carnitine, and Digestarom® to optimize intake. WarmFront® is also available with ClariFly® Larvicide and Bovatec®.
Developed to deliver optimal combinations of protein, energy and technologies, Cow’s Match® ColdFront® calf milk replacer is a unique formulation of the same great Cow’s Match® that set a higher nutrition standard, now with an optimal balance of fat and carbohydrates to provide both higher energy and more quickly mobilized energy sources.
The addition of L-carnitine enhances fatty acid oxidation, thus increasing the ability of calves to better tolerate cold stress.
For best results, Cow’s Match® ColdFront® calf milk replacer should be transitioned into the calf feeding program 2 to 3 weeks prior to cool weather to help protect the calf before the cold weather arrives. Cow’s Match® WarmFront® formula calf milk replacer should be transitioned into the calf feeding program when seasonally cool weather conditions subside.
