Store dry milk replacer powder in a tightly closed container in a cool, dry place. Best if used within 12 months of manufacture.

Reheat gently over warm water and mix thoroughly before feeding. Do not microwave or freeze solution.

See individual species instructions below. Add milk replacer powder to warm water (110-115°F) and stir with a whisk until completely dissolved. Cool milk replacer solution to body temperature before feeding.

Always offer clean, free-choice water.

Feed colostrum as directed below for the first 24 hours of life. If there is no colostrum available, feed a colostrum replacer according to label directions. Begin feeding milk replacer on day 2.
