Calf Milk Replacers

Britmilk milk replacers are the result of many years expertise and experience coupled with the constant aim of producing the finest milk products to feed to young calves and lambs.

Rearing calves successfully is probably the most difficult enterprise on any dairy farm or specialist calf rearing unit.

The homoginisation and drying under vacuum is used in the manufacture of all Britmilk powders. This leads to improved digestibility for maximum performance

Remember successful calf rearing is based on:

Proper feeding of the dry cow which may involve vaccination for Rotavirus, Corona virus. B.V.D, Salmonella and E-coli strains plus feeding a quality Dry Cow mineral such as the BRITMIN DRY COW with SELPLEX.

Taking early swabs of scouring calves will help to identify the problem organisms. Blood tests can also identify if calves have had sufficient colostrum. This should be discussed with your vet for the appropriate actions.

Clean calving boxes plus the use of COSISAN POWDERED DISINFECTANT will help to prevent infection both via navels and orally through contamination of the teats.

Keeping calves’ dry and well bedded and draft free at all times.

Control of lice from an early age (10 days onwards). Ringworm is often a sign that lice are present.

Ensure adequate colostrum in the first HOUR (up-to 4 LITRES good quality tested colostrum) If good colostrum is not available the use of BRITMILK CALF COLOSTRUM is recommended.To improve colostrum management please refer to our section on coloQuick colostrum system.

Coccidiosis in calves is a growing problem (brown/reddish scour /loose dung). Dung sample will confirm presence of the coccidiosis and appropriate treatment followed.

Clean water/ straw/quality mixture/ pellets should be available at all times from 4 day old.

Only start to wean when calves are eating a minimum 1.5kg per head/day for three consecutive days, remember weaning is a process not an event.
