BlueLite C helps to rehydrate calves by proving electrolytes, multiple energy sources, and acidification to help promote a healthy digestive environment. BlueLite C can be administered with milk products to enhance digestion and utilization, and has been proven an effective and easy way to ensure that young calves maintain hydration balance. FOB charges may apply.
Calves have minimal reserves of fat, energy and electrolytes and are unable to digest complex forms of energy and protein. Provide acidified electrolytes and readily digestible energy by adding BlueLite C to whole milk, milk replacer, or water. At the first sign of dehydration or loss of energy provide BlueLite C and continue until normal consumption returns. As a method of scours prevention, administer BlueLite C for the first 7-10 days of life with milk products. For many years, producers have relied on the proven success of BlueLite C to quickly hydrate young calves and to promote optimum results.
When to Use:
- Encourage water intake and maintain hydration
- Ease the transition to weaning
- To aid in the digestion of colostrum
- To promote clot formation of milk nutrients to help utilization of milk solids
- To inhibit pathogen growth
- To enhance digestion and optimize nutrient utilization
- For purchased calves to ease the transition
- Add to water during the summer and winter months for added energy
- For daily hydration maintenance to provide extra fluids during scours
Key Functional Components:
Electrolytes, Acidification, Multiple Energy Sources
Features and Benefits:
- Aromatic blend of pH adjusted electrolytes that are compatible with milk or milk replacer feedings
- Contains multiple energy sources
- Provide acidified electrolytes and readily digestible energy
Directions for Use:
For dehydrated calves, provide 2 ounces of BlueLite C to every 2 quarts whole milk, milk replacer, or water consumed on a daily basis.
Note: The measure in the pail holds approximately 2 ounces of BlueLite C when level.
Caution: Calves showing symptoms of coma, shock or that are too weak to stand should be treated as directed by a veterinarian.
