Newborn Calf Care: The First 12 hours can be the difference between life and death for newborn calves.

Every Calf should be given a Calf 7 Capsule that will help protect calves from scours and encourage gut development, and improve the calf immune system.

Every Beef Calf needs colostrum within two hours of birth. If the calf is left on the cow and it’s up and nursing within 2 hours you should be ok with just giving the Calf 7 Capsule. However, if for some reason the calf isn’t nursing within 2 hours you need to give 250 grams of CL Cow Replacer so the calf will receive all the nutrition including colostrum for the next 6 hours. If the calf isn’t nursing by 6 hours after you have given the CL Cow Replacer you should administer another 250 gram package of CL Cow Replacer to insure that the calf receives enough IgG’s to help it fight off potential infections.

Every Dairy Calf should receive a Calf 7 Capsule followed by 4 Quarts of its mother’s colostrum within 2 hours of birth. In most cases the calf should then be placed on a good quality milk replacer for 14 days. However if the Dairy History is that you are having more scours or other health problems, then you should start using 125 grams of CL Cow Replacer mixed into the 4 quarts of liquid colostrum you are giving the calf the first two hours after birth. If for some reason you are still having more scours or other health problems you should up the CL Cow Replacer from 125 grams to 250 grams.

On Dairy Farms where for some reason you are not using maternal colostrum from your farm you will need to use 500 grams of CL Cow Replacer in 4 quarts of water within 2 hours of birth. Some calves because of size or appetite may need to be fed 250 grams of CL Cow Replacer with 2 quarts of water and repeated 2 to 4 hours later. Remember these calves need a Calf 7 Capsule at birth.

Very Important: Many Calf Farms use Costro Lac Powder in milk or milk replacer. When used for
1-7 feedings our users report fewer sick calves & a reduction in the need for medications.
