This feeding schedule has been designed in accordance with NRC, 2001. This schedule is only a guideline and should be adjusted to the needs of the calf.

General recommendations

By starting calves off slowly, with smaller meals offered 3x daily, their stomachs are able to adapt and more effectively digest and absorb nutrients.

Slightly loose stool is not uncommon when calves are fed higher levels of liquid in their diet.

If calf develops diarrhea, accompanied by lack of appetite, fever, low thriftiness, a veterinarian should be consulted.

Calves from 0-3 wks of age should receive an extra 7g/d of powder per degree C below 20°C ambient temperature for extra maintenance, gradually increase with an extra meal per day.

Calves older than 3 wks of age should receive an extra 7g/d of powder per degree C below 10°C ambient temperature for extra maintenance gradually increase with an extra meal per day.

Starter ration, weaning and water

When the calf is consuming a minimum of 900g (2lbs) of starter ration per day for more than 3 consecutive days, the weaning process can be initiated. Consult your local feed dealer for feed recommendations. Fresh, clean water should be available at all times.

Note: Store this product in a cool dry location, protected from the sun. To maintain freshness, keep partially used bag closed tightly after opening and store in a clean, closed, plastic container.
