Calf Milk Replacer with Bovatec®

Whole milk replacer for young calves

An all milk powder blend providing excellent calf response to the natural food sources of milk fat, milk protein and sugar.

Directions for use

Decide on which feeding option from the tables below best applies to your situation. NRM Calf Milk Replacer can also be used to fortify whole milk or extend milk when stocks are limited.

Mixing ratio: Typically 125g Calf Milk Replacer made up to one litre with water when fed twice daily, 250g Calf Milk Replacer made up to one litre with water when fed once daily.

Dissolve Calf Milk Replacer powder in hot (45-55°C – not boiling) water. Mix to a creamy, smooth consistency and add cool water to make up the required amount. Feed at body temperature (38-40°C). Mix only when required. Feed after a good intake of colostrum has been achieved (from four days after birth). Keep buckets, bottles and other equipment clean. Ensure calves have access to long fibre and quality hard calf feed.

Calf Milk Replacer with Bovatec® 20CC



CONTAINS: Bovatec® 20CC at 500g/tonne (100mg/kg Lasalocid sodium).


INDICATIONS: As an aid in the control of coccidiosis caused by Eimeria species in goats and cattle. Feed a 50kg calf 0.5kg/ day of NRM Calf Milk Replacer with Bovatec® to provide 1mg lasalocid/kg body weight. Up to 2mg lasalocid/kg live weight is indicated where severe coccidial challenge is expected or where a wide range of individual live weights occur within a group. Ensure young animals are adapted to medicated feed for 2 to 3 weeks prior to weaning, as coccidial challenge is most likely in the 8 weeks after weaning. In any case, initiate treatment at least 2 days prior to coccidial challenge.
