Add the dry Calf Colostrum Replacer powder to clean, warm water at 110-120° F and mix thoroughly until completely dissolved. Allow the solution to cool to 90-100° F before feeding. If you are mixing Calf Colostrum Replacer with maternal colostrum, mix the dry powder with water first, then blend the solution into warm colostrum.
Feed the entire volume of solution as soon as possible after birth (within 2 hours if possible). Begin feeding calf milk replacer at the next feeding 6-12 hours later.

Every calf is an individual. The directions above are written for a calf

according to the calf’s body weight, the environmental conditions,
and the level of calf disease on your farm. Consult with your
veterinarian if you have questions.
