Here is my ordeal. My feiance brung home two jersey bull calfs that are about 2-3 days old. They came from a livestock sale near us. I have bottle fed a jersey bull before but he was a few weeks old, and allready starting to eat on his own.. I have no clue how to start theese calfs out. I am kinda paniking because I have tried searching up what the best way to start theese babies out and I hear diffrent things. Theese babies are verry skinny allthough verry alert and over all healthy looking/acting. I live in Michigan and rite now we are still dealing with cold weather in the 30's and we have no heated barn so what we did was placed them in a two horse trailer and boxed them in with a cattle pannel attached so they can wonder outside but can't stray from shelter. This is what I have found out so far that really made sence for starting a calf out from birth. vit.B, J-5, vit. E, Tsv 2 (how much to give them and for how long?) for 14 days feed colostrum (how much a day, is this mixed in with the calf milk, given straight, or one bottle this and one more milk?) treatment for scours is penicillin, sulfea pills and oral electrolytes.(how much do I give, how often, how long and do I use any one of them or all three???) I found in one place to only feed twice a day and up to two quarts at a time but this seems too little for new borns. I was planning on feeding them two quarts three four times a day but then I read that this could cause problems cause they will be over fed. I really need some help. I don't want to loose them because I over/under fed them. the brand of milk replacer that I am useing is INSTANT CALF REPLACER and has 20%protein, 24%fat, it is suposed to aid aginst them from scouring. Is this a good replacer? how much shoudl I feed them?
