Calfs Choice Colostrum The Premium colostrum supplement that prevents Failure of Passive Transfer (FPT) of immunity from cows to their calves. (1x feed).

  • This colostrum supplement contains spray dried bovine colostrum that has been heat treated for safety. Therefore, it is free of all pathogenic bacteria and is safe to use, even in high health herds.
  • When fed as directed, CALF’S CHOICE TOTAL gives calves a minimum of more than 10 grams of immunoglobulins (Igs) per liter of serum (Ig/L). Research has shown that this level protects calves from most common infectious diseases.
  • CALF’S CHOICE TOTAL contains antibodies against a wide variety of common infectious organisms, including: Escherichia coli (E.coli), Bovine Rotavirus and Coronavirus, Bovine Viral Diarrhea Virus (BVDV), Bovine Respiratory Syncytial Virus (B RSV), Bovine Parainfluenza Type 3 Virus (PI-3V), and Bovine Herpesvirus-1 (B H V-1).


  • Calf’s Choice Total™ HiCal (CCT HICal) not only provides calves with the immunity they need, it’s also very high in natural colostral fat and is intended for calves needing extra energy.
  • HiCal is a natural bovine colostrum powder that is rich in IgG and colostral fat, a critical early source of immunity and energy for newborn calves.
  • HiCal is made only from natural, premium quality bovine colostrum. It is an excellent source of IgG (over 85% in the form of IgG1), colostral fat, growth factors, and nutrients needed to improve calf survival, health, growth, and long term performance. HiCal is not a manufactured recipe based on blood serum, whey, eggs, vegetable fats or other ingredients not naturally found in colostrum. Added fats do not give the same benefit as true colostral fat and blood sourced IgG’s are not absorbed as well as colostral IgG’s.

Feeding Recommendations:

  • The Dairy Calf and Heifer Association recommends feeding “colostrum equaling 10% of body weight [about 4 quarts for most Holstein calves] in the first 2 hours of life with target serum IgG of >10 mg/mL and total protein of >5.2 g/dL”.
  • These levels can be achieved when completely replacing maternal colostrum with Calf’s Choice Total™ HiCal at the recommended levels below.

  • Kids are unable to suckle, such as in multiple births, first pregnancy does, and kids born to sick or weak does; or

Feeding Recommendations for Goat Kids

The following feeding recommendations are for goat kids that do not receive any other colostrum. They are based on body weight, but it should be noted that specific needs will vary depending on environmental conditions. When given in each of three feedings in the first 18 hours of life these feeding recommendations are designed to provide a newborn goat kid with the energy needed for maintenance plus gain under indoor [still, dry] conditions, or with maintenance and lower gain under outdoor conditions.

Newborn goat kids should receive their first feeding of colostrum as soon after birth as possible, and not later than 6 hours of age. Undersized, weak or stressed goat kids may also benefit from continued feeding of HEADSTART® HiCaCafter the first day of age.

Mixing: Use a whisk to mix each feeding into water that is hot to the touch 55°C (130°F). Avoid water temperatures above 55°C (130°F). Hot water and vigorous mixing are required because of the high levels of natural fat and proteins. Feeding – After mixing, HEADSTART® HiCal can be fed by nipple bottle or oesophageal tube. The liquid can be stored refrigerated for up to 72 hr, and before feeding should be re-warmed to 40°C (104°F) by immersing in warm water.
