Starter Feeding Tips

  • Keep starter fresh by feeding small amounts.
  • Calves need encouragement to begin eating starter. Place starter in the calf’s shallow bucket or on its muzzle just as it finishes milk replacer.
  • Providing fresh, clean water encourages calves to eat more starter.
  • After starter consumption is well established, provide free-choice access to starter.
  • Feed milk replacer at suggested rate to encourage dry feed consumption.
  • Wean calves from milk replacer when they consume 3.0 pounds of Blueprint 20% Calf Starter Pellet per day for three consecutive days.
