Manufacturer: The Saskatoon Colostrum Co. Ltd.

Bovine Dried Colostrum

Colostrum for Lambs and Goat Kids

This product is bovine dried colostrum and provides the energy, immunity and nutrition needed by newborn lambs and goat kids.

Bovine IgG ≥ 14%

Bovine Colostral Fat ≥ 23%

Ingredient: Bovine Colostrum

Headstart® HiCal can be used to replace or supplement maternal colostrum when:

• The quality or quantity of available doe colostrum is not adequate;

• Lambs and goat kids are unable to suckle;

• Disease agents can be transferred through infected colostrum.

Headstart HiCal Indications

Headstart® HiCal is used as an aid in the treatment of failure of passive transfer (FPT) in newborn lambs and goat kids. Headstart® HiCal will provide the fat and lactose needed to maintain body temperature and the IgG required for passive immunity.

Directions For Use

Newborn lambs and goat kids should receive their first feeding of colostrum as soon as possible by nipple bottle or esophageal tube. Feed colostrum 3 times in the first 18 hours of life.

Use a whisk or metal mixing ball (for mixing sport drinks) to mix the powder for each feeding into water that is hot to the touch (55°C or 130°F). Avoid water temperatures above 55°C or 130°F. Hot water and vigorous mixing are required due to the high level of colostral fat and proteins.

The liquid can be stored refrigerated for up to 72 hours and should be rewarmed to 40°C (104°F) by immersing in warm water prior to feeding.

Dose:

Each feeding is based on body weight. Feed the appropriate amount described in the chart 3 times in the first 18 hours of life.

Each level scoop (included) is 20 g (0.7 oz) of powder.

Store closed at room temperature (22°C or 72°F).
