Yak-Gro milk replacer was formulated to provide the nutritional needs of Yak calf. This all-milk product is able to mimic the dam’s milk and allow a great growth to the offspring.
The newborn calf should be fed maternal colostrum (first mothers milk) in the first 24 hours. This will help provide protection against future infections, particularly if the colostrum is fed before 12 hours. If the mother’s colostrum is not available, the second option is to use cow’s colostrum. If also not available, use a commercial colostrum replacer product.
Start feeding milk replacer once newborn has received colostrum.
Quantities offered should be adjusted to weight, increasing gradually from birth to weaning.
Any change in the feeding schedule should be done with judgement, according to growth and size.
Weigh calves regularly to ensure that milk intake is adequate.
Reconstituted YakGro 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.
The milk replacer solution can be served in a nipple bottle or in an open bucket (older than 2 weeks).
Do not leave the milk in an open bucket for more than 2 hours.
Clean and rinse ALL feeding utensils in hot soapy water and rinse thoroughly after each feeding.
Consult your veterinarian for any signs of disease, fever, parasites, etc.
