This Camel milk replacer was designed to meet the nutrient requirements of a camel calf. It is balanced in minerals and vitamins and formulated to duplicate the protein and fat of the mother’s milk.
At birth, the camel calf must receive colostrum (first mothers milk) in the first 24 hours following birth. This will provide protection against future infections, particularly if the colostrum is fed before 12 hours. If the mothers colostrum is not available, use other camel colostrum or use cow or goat colostrum. If also not available, use a commercial colostrum replacer product.
Start feeding milk replacer once newborn calf has received enough colostrum.
Quantities offered should be about 10% of calf body weight and adjusted to calf’s weight.
Any change in the feeding schedule should be done with judgment, according to growth and size.
Frequent feeding of small amounts will decrease chances of digestive upsets.
Weigh calves regularly to ensure that milk intake is adequate
Reconstituted Camel-Gro may be refrigerated up to 24 hours. Discard any unused portion after 24 hours.
The quantity of milk replacer fed to the calf will vary depending on health, size and availability of mother’s milk.
Clean ALL feeding utensils and equipment after each feeding: rinse in lukewarm water, wash with a detergent in hot (80°C) water, rinse with clean water (ideally a weak bleach solution) and dry thoroughly with a ‘clean’ towel.
Consult your veterinarian for any signs of disease, fever, parasites
