Launchpad 18 feeding schedule

Launchpad 18 feeding schedule

Newborn calves (approximately 40kg) should receive 100g of IgG within the first 12 hours of life.

Newborn kids or lambs (approximately 4kg) should receive a minimum of 10g of IgG within the first 12 hours of life.

To achieve this, feed a minimum of 10% of the birth weight of the young animal as liquid colostrum in the first 12 hours of life.

Colostrum should be fed in a minimum of 2 or up to 4 feeds.

  • For example:
    Feed a 4kg goat kid or lamb 400mL of Launchpad 18 liquid colostrum in 3 to 4 feeds of 130 or 100mL per feed. This will ensure each animal receives approximately 10.8g IgG in the first 12 hours of life.
  • Feed a 40kg calf 4lL of Launchpad 18 liquid colostrum in 2 feeds of 2L per feed. This will ensure each animal receives 108g IgG in the first 12 hours of life.
