Information from the APC Lifeline Protect™ Website
Lifeline™ Rescue replaces colostrum for newborn dairy and beef calves when maternal colostrum is unavailable or of poor quality. Rescue offers added nutritional support to calves experiencing stress by providing 150 grams of globulin protein, plus essential nutrients and energy needed for optimal health and performance. For best results, Rescue must be fed within the first 24 hours following birth. Mix 1 package of Rescue into 1.5 quarts of warm (105°F/40°C) water. Stir well to ensure complete dispersal. Feed to the calf in one feeding via nipple feeder or esophageal feeder as soon as possible following birth.
Newborn calves are particularly prone to disease because they are essentially defenseless against bacteria, viruses and other pathogens in the environment. That is why newborn calves depend on receiving quality colostrum within the first 24 hours of life. Several factors affect the calf’s ability to absorb essential globulin proteins (IgG), such as: the quality of the colostrum, age at first feeding, level of stress, and exposure to bacterial contamination and weather. Health, Immunity, Pathogenic Exposure, Intestinal and respiratory infections are responsible for most morbidity and mortality in young calves. Health is a balance between the animal’s ability to resist disease causing pathogens and the level of pathogens in the calf’s environment. Therefore, when the calf’s ability to resist pathogens (immunity) is greater than the level of exposure, the calf is more likely to remain healthy.
