Calf Feeding Recommendations

Begin feeding calf milk replacer on day 2 after colostrum or colostrum replacer feeding. We recommend providing 1.5-2.5 lbs dry matter/calf/day by either feeding 4 quarts twice daily or 3 quarts 2-3 times daily.
 
Provide fresh, clean water along with a high-quality, palatable calf starter feed on a free-choice basis. Only use low sodium water (<50 ppm) when mixing milk replacer and feeding calves.
 
Always weigh calf milk replacer powder for accurate mixing. Water temperature for mixing calf milk replacer should be 110-120°F. Calf milk replacer should be 105°F when delivered to the calf.
