Colostrum: Replacement Or Supplement?

When selecting the correct colostrum for your herd it is important to keep an eye on whether the colostrum is a replacement or a supplement.  Colostrum supplements are designed to enhance the colostrum that is already being supplied by the mother.  A colostrum replacement is designed to be fed as the sole source of colostrum when no other is available. 

Land O'Lakes Colostrum Replacement

Highly palatable and pasteurized for safety, Land O’ Lakes Colostrum is high in IgG and colostral fat which is essential for immunity and energy in newborn calves.  Land O’ Lakes Colostrum Replacement is easy to feed, and Full Circle Ag carries single dose packs for your convenience.  Simply mix into 1 quart of 110-120F water, mix with wire whisk or electric mixer.  For best results feed the entire dose with a bottle or tube as soon as possible. 

Land O'Lakes Amplifier Max

When milk replacer is needed, Amplifier Max is recommended especially with the environmental stresses spring will offer this year.  Amplifier Max milk replacer have been enhanced to include “active microbials”, which is the good bacteria need to balance a calf’s gut.  Recommended feeding rate is 1.5 to 2 pounds of powder/day.  Subsequently 80% of a calf’s immune function occurs in the gut, so Land O’ Lakes Colostrum Replacement along with high quality milk replacer is a must to give calves the best start possible.   

If you have any questions and/or would like more information, be sure to let me know.
I hope you all have a safe and prosperous calving season!
