Please see the following table for feeding instructions. This product contains 6.8 milligrams of decoquinate per pound of dry powder. Feed to provide 22.7 milligrams of decoquinate per 100 pounds of body weight per day. Add 1 level enclosed cup of dry Sav-A-Kid® Milk Replacer powder to 1-1/2 pints (3 cups) of warm (115-120° F) water and mix thoroughly with a wire whisk. The enclosed up holds approximately 4 ounces by weight (113 grams) of dry powder, equal in volume to a standard measuring cup. Feed the reconstituted milk replacer solution at about 90-100° F.
Important: Decoquinate will settle in the solution – keep the mixed milk replacer agitated or mix immediately before feeding.
