Mixing Instructions:  Measure 2.0 quarts of clean, warm water (110o F) into a clean bucket. Fill enclosed cup level full (10 ounces) with milk replacer powder. Sprinkle 10.0 ounces (0.625 pound) of milk replacer onto the water surface and mix thoroughly. Feed this amount TWICE a day.

Day 2:  Begin feeding Calf Beginner milk replacer according to tag directions. Offer clean, fresh water at all times.

4 to 35 days of age:  Provide a texturized 18% calf starter along with clean, free choice water. Replace daily and keep fresh and clean at all times. Continue to feed Calf Beginner milk replacer according to tag directions.

35 days of age:  Reduce milk replacer feeding by 50% when calves are consuming at least 2 lbs. of calf starter daily. Provide free choice water at all times.

42 days of age:  Wean completely when calves consume at least 3 pounds of calf starter for 3 days in a row. Offer free choice 18% calf starter and free choice water for two weeks prior to moving and grouping.

Cold Weather Feeding:  Newborn calves can experience cold stress at temperatures below 50 degrees F. Options for providing more nutrients to calves during cold stress include:

  1. Feed up to 50% more milk replacer solution per calf per feeding (feed 3 quarts versus 2 quarts per feeding).

  2. Add a third 2 quart feeding during the day.

  3. Add Calf-Cal high energy supplement to the existing milk replacer.
