INDICATIONS

  • To replace or supplement maternal colostrum as an aid in the treatment of Failure of Passive Transfer (FPT) in newborn calves.
  • Calf’s Choice Total® HiCal not only provides calves with the immunity they need, it’s also very high in natural colostral fat and is intended for calves needing extra energy.
  • HiCal may be used to supplement or completely replace maternal colostrum.
  • HiCal is made only from natural, premium quality bovine colostrum. It is an excellent source of IgG (over 85% in the form of IgG1), colostral fat, growth factors, and nutrients needed to improve calf survival, health, growth, and long term performance. HiCal is not a manufactured recipe based on whey, eggs, vegetable fats or other ingredients not naturally found in colostrum.

FEEDING RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Mix the powder with water (43 to 49°C) and feed within 2 hours of birth. Calves should receive a second feeding of colostrum within 8 hours. Feeding additional amounts provides health benefits and is recommended when calves are stressed or disease incidence is high. Consult your veterinarian.
  • The Dairy Calf and Heifer Association recommends feeding “colostrum equaling 10% of body weight [about 4 quarts for most Holstein calves] in the first 2 hours of life with target serum IgG of >10 mg/mL and total protein of >5.2 g/dL.”
  • These levels can be achieved when completely replacing maternal colostrum at the recommended levels.
  • To achieve a replacement dose, newer industry standards suggest 150-200g IgG for optimal calf performance.
  • If supplementing, feed a minimum of 50g IgG in addition to sufficient maternal colostrum to target a similar overall mass of IgG. If maternal colostrum is very poor quality, supplement with higher levels of IgG in addition to maternal colostrum.
