Feed to provide each calf 10 mg. of oxytetracycline and 10 mg. of neomycin sulfate per pound of bodyweight daily. Feed continuously for 7 to 14 days.

MIXING DIRECTIONS

If symptoms persist after feeding the medicated milk replacer for 2 or 3 days, consult a veterinarian. Continue feeding the medicated milk replacer for 24 to 48 hours after the remission of disease symptoms.

CALF MANAGEMENT TIPS

NEWBORN CALF CARE

Remove bottle calves immediately after birth to a clean, well-bedded area away from the mother. Dry the calf, and then saturate the umbilical cord in a 7% iodine solution. Feed colostrum as soon as possible after the calf is born.

COLOSTRUM HANDLING AND FEEDING

Clean the cow’s udder thoroughly and collect colostrum into a clean container. Chill excess colostrum promptly to slow bacterial growth. Discard colostrum that is contaminated with blood, manure or chunky material. Refrigerate colostrum for up to 1 week, freeze for up to 6 months. Warm cold colostrum gently over a warm water bath and do not microwave (excessive heat can damage the proteins).

Feed colostrum to the calf in a nipple bottle, or use an esophageal tube feeder if the calf will not drink voluntarily. Continue to feed colostrum for the first day of life, and then transition to calf milk replacer on day 2. If high-quality colostrum is in short supply, feed Sav-A-Caf® Colostrum Supplement. according to label directions, Calves that do not receive colostrum may scour easily.

CALF STARTER AND WATER

Fresh, clean water and high-quality calf starter should be available to the calf free choice at all times beginning on day 2 or 3. Offer small amounts of fresh calf starter daily until the calf is consuming it regularly, then make it available free choice. Feed and water pails should be dumped and scrubbed regularly to help prevent bacterial growth - at least 2 to 3 times per week or more often if they become contaminated with urine or manure.

SCOURS AND PNEUMONIA IN CALVES

For calves with scours (diarrhea), 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, (labored breathing, nasal discharge, coughing, etc.), consult with your veterinarian.

NOTE: Dehydration from scours or other stress can be very serious. Contact your veterinarian if symptoms 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 calf starter grain each day. Do not offer hay or other forage until after the calf is weaned from milk replacer.

WARNING

Withdraw 5 days before slaughter. A withdrawal period has not been established for use in pre-ruminating calves. Do not use in calves to be processed for veal. A milk discard time has not been established for use in lactating dairy cattle. Do not use in female dairy cattle 20 months of age or older.

Use of more than one product containing neomycin or failure to follow withdrawal times may result in illegal drug residues.
