Note On Newborn Calf Care:
Ideally, a newborn calf should receive fresh colostrum from its own mother for the first 24 hours of life, before being fed milk replacer. Colostrum is the first milk from the cow following birth, providing nutrients, growth factors, and immune globulin proteins that are crucial to the health and growth of the calf. Colostrum must be fed as soon as possible after birth for maximum absorption of maternal antibodies in the newborn. If there is not enough high-quality colostrum available, refrigerated or frozen colostrum may be substituted. If no stored colostrum is available, use Sav-A-Caf Colostrum Supplement according to package directions.
Mixing and Feeding Directions:
If You Don't Have Enough Maternal Colostrum:
Mix the entire content 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, and then begin feeding calf milk replacer starting on day two. When supplementing milk replacer or whole milk at days 2-4: add 1/8 standard measuring cup to each feeding.
If You Don't Have Any Colostrum:
If maternal colostrum or Sav-A-Caf Colostrum Replacer is not available, mix 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 the entire volume of solution as soon as possible after the calf is born. Give one to four additional feedings of Sav-A-Caf Colostrum Supplement 6 to 8 hours apart, and then begin feeding calf milk replacer starting on day two. When supplementing milk replacer or whole milk at days 2-4: add 1/8 standard measuring cup to each feeding.
IMPORTANT: Every calf is an individual. Adjust the amounts fed according to the calf's body weight and the environmental conditions.
