Large Breeds (125 lb calf): Mix 0.25 lb of AlphaLine® MilkBuilder powder with at least 2 quarts of 110-120° F pasteurized milk. Feed twice daily.
Consult with your feed specialist for more specific feeding and management recommendations.
NOTE: Always offer free choice water.
When mixed and fed as above this product provides 45 milligrams of lasalocid per 100 lb of body wieght. This resulting mix should be fed during periods of coccidiosis exposure or when experience indicates coccidiosis is likely to be a problem and to prevent the development of house flies, stable flies, face flies and horn flies in the manure of treated beef and dairy calves. Start feeding ClariFly early in the spring, 30 days before flies begin to appear, and continue feeding throughout the summer and into the fall until cold weather restricts fly activity. In some cases, supplemental fly control measures may be needed in and around barns and hutches to control adult house and stable flies which can breed in other decaying, organic matter or silage in the area, or that migrate in from other locations.
IMPORTANT: Thoroughly mix milk replacer powder in warm pasteurized milk, 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 any settling which could result in the feeding of improper levels of lasalocid.
Follow label directions. The addition to feed of higher levels of this premix containing selenium is not permitted. The safety of lasalocid in unapproved species has not been established. This product is to be fed to calves only. Do not allow horses or other equines access to feeds containing
lasalocid as ingestion may be fatal. A withdrawal period has not been established for lasalocid in pre-ruminating calves. DO NOT USE IN CALVES TO BE PROCESSED FOR VEAL. DO NOT FEED TO LACTATING COWS
Dairy Feeding Guidelines
For Calves and Heifers:
Feed large breed calves 4 quarts of high quality colostrum within 2 hours of birth and again 12 hours later. Adjust amounts for small breed calves. If colostrum quality or quantity is low, consider using a colostrum supplement or replacer.
Offer free choice water from day 2.
Offer free choice calf starter from day 3, starting with a small amount, and increasing as they begin to eat. Calves weaned at 8 weeks of age or less should be consuming 3-4 pounds of starter grain per head per day. Never let calves go without available starter.
Wean calves off milk over a 10-16 day period.
At 12 weeks, gradually switch to heifer grower pellet, offering increasing amounts of hay.
Milk Replacer Feeding:
See product tag for feeding guidelines for optimal biologic growth.
Weigh MR powder every feeding for accuracy and consistency.
Mix MR powder in 110-120° F. water. Feed to calves soon thereafter, at 105° F.
Mix MR powder thoroughly with half of the desired final liquid volume. Add water to reach final volume and temperature; mix or whisk solution thoroughly. Feed immediately.
For large mixing batches, agitate while dispensing to individual feeding containers to prevent settling.
Acidified Milk Replacer Feeding:
Check milk replacer solution pH prior to feeding to ensure 4.0-4.5 pH.
Keep at 70-90°F after mixing and feed free choice via nipple feeder.
Mix fresh every 24-28 hours.
Keep equipment, nipples and hoses clean daily.
