Calf Jacket by "Cosy Calf"
Tried, Tested & Produced by a farmer - for farmers!!
The thermo-neutral zone is the range of temperatures between the lower and upper critical temperatures to which an animal may become acclimatized. In new born calves and up to four weeks of age this is between 10C and 25C. Calves at one month it is between 0 degree C and 23 degree C.
Outside these temperatures i.e. if it is too cold calves must burn energy just to maintain core body temperature.
A calf requires 2% more energy for every 1 degree C below the thermo-neutral zone, therefore at freezing point (0 degree C) a calf requires 20% more milk/feed just for maintenance.
Dairy breed calves do not have enough body fat to maintain their own body temperature in cold weather. Feed is often limited by number of feeds per day and the amount given per feed. Keeping the calf warm therefore is the most cost effective way of maximising the feed given.
General rule for the use of calf jackets on young or sick calves is that: - if you feel the need of a coat then so does a calf!
With the use of calf jackets you can make significant savings on feed, medication and bedding costs, by better conversion of energy to growth rather than warmth and reduce the risk of pneumonia and scours from chills and draughts.

| First Life Drench|
WINTER WARMER OFFER
BUY 10 GET 1 FREE!
As new born calves are reliant on colostrum/first milk for antibodies to fight disease they are also extremely reliant on it for energy.
If a calf doesnt nurse, it starts depleting its blood glucose within 30-60 minutes. Its body tries to replenish this from liver glycogen stores but these can be used up within 4-6 hours, after which the calf becomes hypoglycaemic. If calves fail to receive proper nutrition, they deplete their brown fat reserves in 1-6 days.
Reasons to use Wessex First Life drench.
- Supplies glucose precursors
- Increases glucose production in the liver
- Stabilises blood glucose levels
- Reduces the need to immediately deplete brown fat reserves to meet energy
We recommend feeding 30ml/45kg of body weight on day 2 or when an energy boost is required.
Contains: Propylene Glycol, Cane Molasses, Nicotinamide, Biotin, Vitamin E & Selenium.
| Life Aid Xtra x 48|
Life Aid Xtra is a oral rehydration product, which comes in sachets. Used for the reversal of the processes of dehydration, electrolyte loss and acidosis associated with scour in calves whether due to nutritional, bacterial, viral or cryptospiridial causes.
A water soluble powder contained in a single 83.74g sachet which forms an orange solution on mixing with water for oral administration.
Composition % w/w
Sodium Citrate Dihydrate 4.681
Sodium Acetate Trihydrate 3.917
Sodium Propionate 2.293
Sodium Chloride 5.589
Potassium Chloride 3.559
Potassium Dihydrogen Phosphate 1.624
Glucose (anhydrous) 75.237
Sunset Yellow 0.1
Silica Colloidal Anhydrous 3.0
On reconstitution in 2 litres of water the available concentrations are as follows:
Sodium 90 mmol/1
Potassium 25 mmol/1
Chloride 60 mmol/1
Phosphate 5 mmol/1
Propionate 10 mmol/1
Acetate 20 mmol/1
Citrate 6.67 mmol/1
Dextrose 175 mmol/1
The propionate, acetate and citrate ions together yield 50mmol/l bicarbonate.
Life-Aid Xtra, a powder for oral solution, is an oral rehydration product indicated for the reversal of the processes of dehydration, electrolyte loss and acidosis associated with scour in calves, whether due to nutritional, bacterial, viral or cryptosporidial causes.
Life-Aid Xtra is specifically formulated to provide both high levels of sodium (90 mmol/1) to enable rapid water absorption and also to provide increased bicarbonate precursor for the correction of acidosis. The increased glucose level provides more energy for the calf without interfering with rehydration.
Dosage & Administration
Dosage: A solution, which is administered orally, is prepared as follows: dissolve the contents of one sachet in 2 litres (3½ pints) of warm water.
All milk and milk replacer is withdrawn on first signs of scour. Two litres of the solution, freshly prepared as directed, is given twice daily for 2 days. The solution provides an adequate source of nutrients and electrolytes which are readily absorbed. For the next 4 feeds (2 days) 1 litre of solution and 1 litre of milk replacer is administered. Thereafter normal diet is resumed. If symptoms are severe, the solution may be fed 3 or 4 times daily. The solution may be given for a maximum of 4 days only, when administered on its own.
Life-Aid Xtra is best dissolved by slowly adding the contents of one sachet to 2 litres of warm water, stirring gently. A fine deposit of insoluble carrier may remain after
dissolving the contents of the sachet; this does not affect the efficacy of the product.
