Feed 3-4 quarts of colostrum immediately after birth (need to provide 100 g of IgG). Feed 2-4 additional quarts within 12 hours of birth and feed 2-4 more quarts at 24 hours of age. If necessary, use an esophageal feeder.
Feed Kent Group milk replacers until 6 weeks of age or when calves have consumed 2 lb of starter per day for 3 consecutive days, whichever comes last (mix and feed according to the directions on milk replacer tags).
Start feeding SweetFLAKESTM 20 DQ45 when calves are 3 days old. Place a fresh supply before calves each day. Calves should consume at 1 lb per 100 lb of body weight to provide 22.7 mg of decoquinate per 100 lb of body weight. Feed for at least 28 days during periods of coccidiosis exposure or when experience indicates it is likely to be a hazard.
