AlphaLine® Start Calf Starter
A full-potential calf starter designed for a seamless transition from milk, and to develop a robust rumen that supports high intakes for exceptional growth.
-For increased rate of weight gain in pasture cattle (slaughter, stocker, feeder cattle, and dairy and beef replacement heifers; For control of coccidiosis caused by Eimeria bovis and Eimeria zuernii in cattle up to 800 lbs.
- Seasonally formulated with Clarifly® (diflubenzuron) for the control of fly populations.
-Formulated using current research to achieve high rates of gain, approximately 3 lbs over well managed, early age calves, from a high plane of nutrients and high intakes of starter.
-High quality protein sources and amino acids balanced to support exceptional growth.
-Carbohydrate sources including starch, sugar and soluble fiber to avoid nutritional scours at high intake levels, and to support the young ruminant papillae.
-Contains yeast cell wall components to support early calf immunity.
-Over 50,000 lbs have been field tested to demonstrate real farm performance.
|Vitamin A||(Min)||6000.00 IU/LB|
Feeding Directions: Offer to calves free choice daily up to 7 lbs/hd/day (7 lbs per hd/day would provide 231 mg/hd/day of lasalocid).
*For coccidiosis control: Hand feed at the rate of 1.0 mg lasalocid per 2.2 lbs of bodyweight per day (up to a maximum of 360 mg/hd/day) to cattle up to 800 lbs.
- For increased rate of weight gain: in pasture cattle (slaughter, stocker, feeder cattle and dairy and beef replacement heifers) Feed continuously at a rate of no less than 60 mg nor more than 300 mg/head/day. Intakes of lasalocid in excess of 200 mg per head per day have not been shown to be more effective than 200 mg per head per day.
A withdrawal period has not been established for this product in pre-ruminating cattle. Do not use in calves to be processed for veal. The safety of Lasalocid for use in unapproved species has not been established. Do not allow horses or other equines access to feeds containing Lasalocid as ingestion may be fatal.
Dairy Feeding Guidelines
For Calves and Heifers:
Feed large breed calves 4 quarts of high quality colostrum within 2 hours of birth and again 12 hours later. Adjust amounts for small breed calves. If colostrum quality or quantity is low, consider using a colostrum supplement or replacer.
Offer free choice water from day 2.
Offer free choice calf starter from day 3, starting with a small amount, and increasing as they begin to eat. Calves weaned at 8 weeks of age or less should be consuming 3-4 pounds of starter grain per head per day. Never let calves go without available starter.
Wean calves off milk over a 10-16 day period.
At 12 weeks, gradually switch to heifer grower pellet, offering increasing amounts of hay.
Milk Replacer Feeding:
See product tag for feeding guidelines for optimal biologic growth.
Weigh MR powder every feeding for accuracy and consistency.
Mix MR powder in 110-120° F. water. Feed to calves soon thereafter, at 105° F.
Mix MR powder thoroughly with half of the desired final liquid volume. Add water to reach final volume and temperature; mix or whisk solution thoroughly. Feed immediately.
For large mixing batches, agitate while dispensing to individual feeding containers to prevent settling.
Acidified Milk Replacer Feeding:
Check milk replacer solution pH prior to feeding to ensure 4.0-4.5 pH.
Keep at 70-90°F after mixing and feed free choice via nipple feeder.
Mix fresh every 24-28 hours.
Keep equipment, nipples and hoses clean daily.
