Dairy and Beef Calves:

In any calf raising program, it is important that calves receive colostrum for the first 3 days. Newborn calves should receive 3 quarts of colostrum in the first feeding as soon after birth as possible (within 1 hour) and again 12 hours later. For days 2 and 3 of life, feed 2 quarts of colostrum twice daily to calves. Starting the 4th day, mix and feed Hi-Pro Nursing Formula according to the following directions.

Mixing: Measure 2 quarts of clean, warm water (110°F.) into a clean bucket. Sprinkle 2 measures* (1/2 pound) of milk replacer onto the water surface and mix thoroughly.

Feeding: Beginning on day 4, introduce milk replacer.

- Light Breed Calves: 1 1/2 to 2 quarts of liquid milk replacer twice per day.

- Heavy Breed Calves: 2 to 2 1/2 quarts of liquid milk replacer twice per day.

Goats:

Use the plastic cup provided to measure the milk replacer powder. Each cup holds about 1/4 pound of powder. Mix 1 level cup of Hi-Pro Nursing Formula in 1 1/2 pints (or pounds) of 110-120° F. water by slowly adding powder to water while stirring.

Hand Feeding Guidelines:

Use the following schedule as a guideline for feeding reconstituted milk replacer.

Age of Kid in DaysNumber of Feedings Per DayMaximum Pints Per Kid Daily
1 4 Colostrum
2-3 4 1
4-5 3 1
6-10 2 1 ½
11-weaning 2 2-3

Canines and Domesticated Felines:

Use the plastic cup provided to measure the milk replacer powder. Each cup holds about 1/4 pound of powder. Mix 1 1/2 cups (0.375 lb.) of Hi-Pro Nursing Formula in 1 pint of 110-120°F. water by slowly adding powder to water while stirring.

Feed reconstituted milk replacer at the daily rate of 2 tablespoons (1 ounce) per 1/4 pound of body weight (equivalent to 4 fluid ounces per pound of body weight).

Pigs:

Mix 2 level cups (1/2 pound) of Hi-Pro Nursing Formula in 1 quart of (110-120°F.) water by slowly adding powder to water while stirring.

Daily Feeding Directions:

Begin at day 1 feeding 8 ounces of reconstituted milk replacer per day. Feed 10 ounces the second day, and 12 ounces the third day. Increase this amount by 1 1/2 ounces per day until day ten when total consumption is 22 ounces per day. Days 11-15 feed 24 ounces. On day 16 cutback by 4 ounces every 3rd day until day 22. Start offering a high quality creep feed at 7 days of age.

Important: From 0-2 days divide the daily intake of reconstituted milk replacer into 4 feedings. From 3-10 days divide into 3 feedings per day; thereafter 2 feedings per day. 

Foals:

Use the plastic cup provided to measure the milk replacer powder. Each cup holds about 1/4 pound of powder. Mix 1 level cup of Hi-Pro Nursing Formula in 1 quart of 110-120°F. water by slowly adding powder to water while stirring. Feeding temperature should be 90-100°F.

Feeding Guidelines:

Use the following schedule as a guideline for feeding reconstituted milk replacer.

Age of FoalNumber of Feedings Per DayFeeding Rates (Quarts) Per Foal Daily*
1 day - Colostrum
2-7 days 4 4-8
2nd week** 4 6-12
3rd week and 4th week 3 8-15
5th week 3 6-12
6th week to 8th week 2 4-8

* Higher feeding rates are designated for larger foals where maximum growth rate is desired. Ponies should be fed at 1/2 the lowest feeding rate for each age period.

** Begin feeding in small amounts a high quality foal creep ration and fresh, clean water at all times. Gradually increase feeding rate over time.

Lambs:

1.  Lambs should receive colostrum milk soon after birth. Remove lambs from ewes 1 day after birth, if possible, and start lambs on Hi-Pro Nursing Formula.

2.  Use the plastic cup provided in the bag to measure the milk replacer powder. Mix 1 level measure (about 1/4 pound) of powder in 1 pint of water, or for large batches mix 2 pounds of powder with 1 gallon of water.

3.  Mix with warm (110-120°F.) water, stir while adding milk replacer powder.

4.  Hand Feeding: When hand feeding by bottle, powder should be fed at body temperature. The following feeding schedule is recommended:  

After Colostrum Feeding to 3 Days: Feed 1/3 cup of reconstituted milk replacer 4 to 6 times a day at 4 hour intervals.

4 Days to 2 Weeks: Gradually decrease the number of feedings and increase amount of milk replacer per feeding. At two weeks of age, 1 cup of reconstituted milk replacer 3 times per day is sufficient.

2 Weeks to Weaning: Feed reconstituted milk replacer twice daily and in gradually increased quantities.

5.  Keep milk replacer feeding equipment clean.

6.  Provide a high quality creep feed at a few days of age and continue on a free-choice basis. Fresh, clean water should be provided at all times.

7.  Lambs should be weaned from milk at 4 to 6 weeks of age or about 25 pounds of weight. Abrupt weaning can be used. However, reduced milk replacer feeding a few days prior to weaning to encourage creep intake may be desirable.

8.  If Scours Occur:

First: Check environment for drafts and proper temperatures.

Second: Evaluate sanitation.

Third: If scours persist, treat with suitable antibiotic as recommended by your veterinarian.
