West Central Indiana
I have a bag of Nutrena Dairyway Milk Replacer http://www.nutrenaworld.com/products/dairy-cattle/milk-replacer/ . I read my bags instructions and it says the same thing on the website, "see attached tag for important feeding instructions". Is there anyone that can tell me the mix ration or take a picture of the tag and post it on here. I need to know how much powder to mix with 1 gallon of water. Thanks

I use it all the time and we use a full cup per bottle and give a bottle in the morning and one in the evening. I use the cup thats included in the bag. If you need to know more just ask.

I never use a full cup, I think it gives them the squirts and the reason they recommend so much is they are selling lots of milk replacer that way. But the calf we are feeding now is 3 weeks today and probably doesn't weigh more than 70, if that. She was a peanut. One thing I do that I think helps a lot is to add about a half scoop of powdered Gatorade to every bottle. Dehydration is what kills most calves, anyway. I got the idea years ago from looking at the ingredients on a packet of calf electrolyte powder. Said it had sodium, potassium, and electrolytes. The packet was like 6 bucks, and was good for 1 or 2 feedings. You can buy a big tub of powdered Gatorade for that or less and it lasts a lot longer than 1 or 2 feedings!

Do they start eating calf manna pretty fast? I guess if they eat any at all they get alot of nutrition from it.

I am no expert but they seem to start on it pretty early. If they dont start on it good I sprinkle a little of the powdered milk on it and that seem to help.

One pound of 20/20 milk replacer in a gallon of water, then feed that according to the size of the calf.
