An easy to use coccidiostat for addition to whole milk or calf milk replacer. Most calf feeds would contain a coccidiostat including either lasalocid (Bovatec®) or monensin (e.g. Rumensin®). However, the levels of coccidiostat included in calf feeds is normally set at an inclusion rate that would prevent coccidiosis when the calves are consuming 1kg/calf/day. As Coccidiosis can occur in calves from 3 weeks (young suckling calves) up to 12 months of age it’s important that a coccidiostat is included in whole milk or calf milk replacer during this period prior to weaning.
