MIXING AND FEEDING DIRECTIONS

IF YOU DON’T HAVE ENOUGH MATERNAL COLOSTRUM

Mix the entire contents of one pouch (16 ounces of dry powder) of Sav-A-Caf® Colostrum Supplement into 1-1/2 quarts of clean, warm water (105° to 110° F). Mix thoroughly with a wire whisk until the powder is completely dissolved. Feed solution at body temperature using a nipple bottle, as soon as possible after birth (within 2 hours if possible). Feed at least 2 quarts clean disease-free maternal colostrum as well. Provide a second feeding of colostrum 6 to 12 hours later, then begin feeding calf milk replacer starting on day two. When supplementing milk replacer or whole milk at days 2-4: add 1/8 cup (kitchen measure) to each feeding.

IF YOU DON’T HAVE ANY COLOSTRUM

If maternal colostrum or a Sav-A-Caf® Colostrum Replacer is not available, mix one pouch of Sav-A-Caf® Colostrum Supplement into 1-1/2 quarts of clean, warm water (105° to 110° F). Feed all of the solution as soon as possible after the calf is born. Give one to four additional feedings of Colostrum Supplement, six to eight hours apart, and then begin feeding milk replacer on day two. When supplementing milk replacer or whole milk at days 2-4: add 1/8 cup (kitchen measure) to each feeding.

IMPORTANT- Every calf is an individual. Adjust the amounts fed according to the calls body weight and the environmental conditions - if you have a significant problem with calf scours on your farm, it may be beneficial to feed more Colostrum Supplement than recommended above. Consult with your veterinarian if you have questions.

STORAGE AND SHELF LIFE

Store dry Sav-A-Caf® Colostrum Supplement powder in a tightly closed, waterproof container in a cool, dry place. Use within 18 months of manufacture whenever possible. Dry powder may be sealed in a waterproof, airtight container and stored in the freezer to extend shelf life. Feed mixed Sav-A-Caf® Colostrum Supplement solution immediately - do not store.

CALF MANAGEMENT TIPS

NEWBORN CALF CARE

Remove the bottle calf immediately after birth to a clean, well-bedded area away from the mother. Dry the calf, and then saturate the umbilical cord in a disinfectant solution. Feed colostrum as soon as possible after the calf is born.

COLOSTRUM COLLECTION AND STORAGE

Always clean the cow’s udder thoroughly before milking and collect colostrum into a clean container. Feed the calf only clean, fresh colostrum. Stored colostrum must be chilled immediately after collection to slow bacterial growth. Discard any unused refrigerated colostrum after 1 week, and any unused frozen colostrum after 6 months. Warm cold or frozen colostrum gently over a warm water bath (excessive heat can damage the proteins).

CALF STARTER AND WATER

Provide fresh, clean water and high-quality calf starter to the calf free choice at all times. Dump and scrub feed and water pails at least 2 to 3 times per week or more often if they become contaminated with urine or manure.

SCOURS & PNEUMONIA

For calves with scours (diarrhea), continue to feed milk replacer twice daily. Add 1 to 2 feedings of Sav-A-Caf® Electrolytes PLUS in between milk replacer feedings to help maintain hydration. If your calf is showing signs of pneumonia or other respiratory disease, consult with your veterinarian. NOTE: Dehydration from scours or other stress can be very serious. Contact your veterinarian if symptoms worsen or do not improve within a few days, or if the calf becomes visibly dehydrated.

WEANING

Most healthy calves can be weaned from milk replacer at 8-12 weeks of age, provided they are in good physical condition and are consuming at least 2 pounds of a calf starter grain each day. Do not offer hay or other forage until after the calf is weaned from milk replacer.
