So, I'm new to raising calves. A neighbor brought over two Holstein bucket calves to get us started raising beef cattle. He told me to give them each a bottle of milk replacer twice a day. We've been doing that for over a week. They got diarrhea, so we're on day four of cutting the milk back and feeding electrolytes. The diarrhea is gone. But, the milk I got at my feed store was medicated. I went to a different feed store and they had three different types of medicated milk and one tiny bag of nonmedicated milk. So, I'd rather feed unmedicated just because I don't like the idea of feeding antibiotics willy-nilly. But, since the medicated powder seems much more readily available, I figure most people are buying the medicated kind. What do you all think? Do you feed medicated or nonmedicated milk to bucket calves?
