Oral administration of 60ml as soon as possible, preferably within the first 4 hours but not later than 12 hours after birth.
The product should be administered neat or diluted in milk or milk replacer. If the calf is reluctant to take the product, it may be administered via an ordinary syringe placed in the mouth. The calf must be given other normal colostrum in addition to the product.
In the absence of information specifically demonstrating the safety of more than one repeated dose, it is recommended that calves should only be dosed once.
The product is produced from colostrum collected from cows kept under field conditions. Consequently in addition to antibodies to E.coli F5 (K99) it also contains antibodies to other organisms, as a result of vaccination and/or exposure of the donor cows to organisms in their environment. This may include antibodies against BVD virus. This should be borne in mind when planning vaccination programs for calves, which received Locatim.
