After colostrum feeding period, mix and feed the amounts of milk replacer found in the chart below per calf twice a day*: Hand feed at a rate of 1 mg of lasalocid per 2.2 lb of body weight per day. Thoroughly mix this milk replacer powder with warm water and feed immediately. When preparing large batches (i.e., anything other than individual calf servings) keep the mixture agitated while dispensing into individual feeding containers to prevent settling.
