a Jersey calf of that age should be getting 2 qts per feeding of replacer ,full bottle , and either a calf starter or grower ,she dose not need corrid , you can add a cup of cultured buttermilk (from the store ) to her bottles , also good quality hay should be available, also make sure the temp of her bottle is 101 at feeding ,so pretty warm , and hold the bottle low below her shoulder so she holds her head low to drink
