Features: Benefits:
GREENLINE™ Additive A natural dietary additive which results in greater gains, improved health, and a faster start.
Contains Glymaxene™, a patented process, as an alternative protein source.   Improves digestibility of soy protein, reduces antigens found in soy protein which can cause calf scours, and reduced lactose levels which assists in preventing calf scours.
Slightly higher fiber levels than an all-milk protein milk replacer.     Assists in reducing the incidence of calf scours.
  1.  Use the plastic cup provided to measure the milk replacer powder.

 

  1.  Add 1 full cup (10 ounces) of dry milk replacer powder to approximately 1 ½ quarts of 110-120°F water.

 

  1.  Mix thoroughly and add 110-120°F water to bring to a total volume of 2 quarts of milk replacer solution.

 

  1.  Large Batches:  Mix 6 ¼ pounds (10 full cups) of milk replacer powder into approximately four gallons of 110-120°F water.  Mix thoroughly and add 110-120°F water to bring to a total volume of five gallons of milk replacer solution.

 

  1.  Feed each calf according to the schedule listed below.

 

Large Breeds:  Feed two quarts reconstituted liquid milk replacer and twice a day.

 

Small Breeds:  Feed 1 ½ – 2 quarts reconstituted milk replacer twice a day.

 

In extremely cold weather, it may be beneficial to feed another feeding of calf milk replacer in the middle of the day.  Add ½ cup of milk replacer powder to 1 quart of 110-120°F water, mix and feed to 1 calf at midday.

  1. Feed newborn calves three quarts of high-quality warm colostrum via nipple bottle within one hour of birth and repeat 12 hours later (or) feed four quarts of high-quality warm colostrum by esophageal feeder within one hour of birth and repeat 12 hours later via nipple bottle as much as they will consume.

 

  1. Consult with your veterinarian on a dry cow and calf vaccination program including but not limited to E. Coli, rota and coronavirus, clostridium, and salmonella.

 

  1. For best mixing, continuously stir with wire whip while adding the powder to 100-120°F water (hot as you can tolerate on your hand).  Use correct water temperature to avoid product separation. Feed milk replacer at 90-100°F.

 

  1. Begin feed milk replacer on day 2 and provide fresh, clean water along with high quality, palatable HI-PRO FEEDS calf starter on a free-choice basis.

 

  1. Observe calves closely during the milk replacer feeding period.  Avoid underfeeding, which may result in starvation, or over-consumption which may increase the incidence of scours.

 

  1. Continue to feed milk replacer until the calf is consuming a minimum of 1 ½ pounds of calf starter per day, which usually occurs at 4-6 weeks of age.
