Subject: RE: Calf perk to new borns calves


Anything put into the newborns gut accelerates gut closure.
For me, that material should be it's mother's colostrum, if available or a small amount of colostrum replacement.
One cup of mom's colostrum will awaken most calves. Their positive reaction is quickly observed in 5-10 minutes. If they fail to nurse the offered small amount and look to mom for more, I'll tube the calf with a least a quart of mom or a full bag of colostrum replacer. Next, I put him into a hot box or pickup floorboard to finish drying off.
