Feeding Directions

Birth: Feed 3-4 quarts of colostrum immediately after birth (need to provide 150g of IgG). Feed 2-3 additional quarts within 12 hours of birth and feed 2-4 additional quarts within 12 hours of birth. Always use the highest quality colostrum available. If necessary, use an esophageal feeder. Don’t let the calf determine intake.

2 Days Old Until Weaning: Feed COMMERCIAL CALF until weaning. For small breed calves feed 2 to 2.5 quarts of reliquefied COMMERCIAL CALF twice-a-day. For large breed calves feed 2.5 to 3 quarts of reliquefied COMMERCIAL CALF twice-a-day. Continue to feed COMMERCIAL CALF as long as you would normally feed whole milk.

Cold Weather Feeding Instructions: Add an extra feeding using non-medicated COMMERCIAL CALF milk replacer solution or add 1-2 ounces per feeding of Milk Energizer™ to increase the total energy level of the milk replacer during periods of cold stress.

General Management Considerations

1. The suggested feeding program is intended solely as a guide. The variables of management, environment, and breed may dictate changes in the animals’ requirements.

2. Provide clean, fresh water at all times.

3. Start feeding Kent® Calf Starter when calves are 4 days old. Start with a small amount (0.5 lb) and gradually increase as the calf’s consumption increases. Provide a fresh amount each day to stimulate consumption.

4. Wean calves when consuming at least 2 lb of Kent® calf starter per day for 3 consecutive days.

Mixing Directions

Mix 12 ounces (0.75 lb) of COMMERCIAL CALF replacer plus 2.5 quarts of warm (110°F) water. Add powder to water and mix vigorously. Use of cooler water requires greater mixing action and increases the possibility of the powder settling out. Feed immediately.
