In any calf raising program, it is important that calves receive colostrum for the first three days. Newborn calves should receive three quarts of colostrum in the first feeding as soon after birth as possible (within one hour) and again 12 hours later. For days two and three of life, feed two 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 two 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 four, introduce milk replacer.

– Light Breed Calves: one and a half to two quarts of liquid milk replacer twice per day.

– Heavy Breed Calves: two to two and a half 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 one level cup of Hi-Pro Nursing Formula in one and a half pints (or pounds) of 110-120° F. water by slowly adding the powder to water while stirring.

 

Hand Feeding Guidelines

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

Age of Kid in Days Number of Feedings Per Day Maximum Pints Per Kid Daily
1 4 Colostrum
2-3 4 1
4-5 3 1
16-10 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 a quarter pound of powder. Mix one and a half cups (0.375 lb.) of Hi-Pro Nursing Formula in one pint of (110-120°F.) water by slowly adding the powder to water while stirring.

Feed reconstituted milk replacer at the daily rate of two tablespoons (one ounce) per quarter pound of body weight (equivalent to four fluid ounces per pound of body weight).

 

Pigs:

Mix two level cups (half a pound) of Hi-Pro Nursing Formula in one quart of (110-120°F.) water by slowly adding the powder to water while stirring.

Daily Feeding Directions:

Begin at day one feeding eight ounces of reconstituted milk replacer per day. Feed 10 ounces the second day, and 12 ounces the third day. Increase this amount by one and a half 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 four ounces every 3rd day until day 22. Start offering a high-quality creep feed at seven days of age.

Important: From 0-2 days divide the daily intake of reconstituted milk replacer into four feedings. From 3-10 days divide into three feedings per day; after that two 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 the 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 Foal Number of Feedings Per Day Feeding Rates (Quarts) Per Foal Daily*
1 day Colostrum
2-7 days 4 4-8
2nd week** 3 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 one half 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 one 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 one level measure (about a quarter pound) of powder in one pint of water, or for large batches mix two pounds of powder with one 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 three Days: Feed a third cup of reconstituted milk replacer four to six times a day at four-hour intervals.

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

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

  1.  Keep milk replacer feeding equipment clean.
  2.  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.
  3.  Lambs should be weaned from milk at four to six 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.
  4.  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.
