IMPORTANT NOTES FOR NEWBORN MANAGEMENT:

Newborns should receive colostrum in the first day of life before being fed milk replacer, preferably within the first 6 hours of life. Colostrum is the first milk from the mother following birth, providing nutrients that are essential to the newborn’s health and growth. If the mother’s colostrum is of high quality but in short supply, feed a colostrum supplement in addition to maternal colostrum. If the mother’s colostrum is not available or is not usable (dirty or contaminated), use a colostrum replacer. For animals that develop scours (diarrhea) or need support during hot weather or other stress, use an electrolyte supplement. Offer fresh water at all times.
