RECOMMENDED CALF PROGRAM

Buy a calf that is less than a week old.

DAY ONE:  Inject 1 ml Immunoboost under the skin on the neck. Inject 5 ml of  Calf Fortifier

Feed 1 ounce (a measure) of Quantum Leap Scour Product twice daily for the first 10 days. No other meds are needed.  The Quantum Leap is aglomerized for easy mixing.

Sometime during the first week -dehorn using Dr. Larson’s Dehorning Paste.

DAY EIGHT: Inject second 1ml dose of Immunoboost.  Vaccinate with Vista Once, either inject it of squirt 2 ml up one nostril.  This covers the 5 viruses and the two bacterials Pasteurella multocida and Mannheimia haemolytica.

If lice are a problem, pour with 3 ml of Ultra Boss per 100# of body weight.  Be sure to pour every animal in the building.

Offer a grain mix of whole dry shelled corn and a protein pellet (mix should be 18% - protein) or if you have oats to feed – 1/3 corn, 1/3 oats,and 1/3 pellets.

At 3 to 4 weeks, inject BoSe or MuSe.  There  is very little selenium in whole milk.

DAY OF MOVING CALVES TO GROUP PEN: vaccinate with Vista-5

10 DAYS AFTER GROUPING: repeat the Vista-5.

Be sure to be all-in-and- all-out in whatever facility you are using. Do not mix young calves with older ones.

If Salmonella dublin is a problem, be sure to consult.  There are several ways of handling this mean bug.  It is a respiratory problem that usually strikes at 4 to 12 weeks of age.

If using electrolytes – do not put them in the milk.  Be sure to use at least as much water as the directions call for.  If they are mixed too strong they can kill the calfl!

Do not take the milk away from a scouring calf – he will starve.

Keep clean fresh water in front of the calf at all times. Make sure milk replacer has all milk proteins. Waste milk should be pasteurized.
