Calf Milk Replacer

Postby yellowdog5 » Mon Apr 02, 2018 9:59 am

I have a bag of calf milk replacer, not medicated, that is about 3 years old. Is it OK to use? It has been stored in a sealed container and looks and smells fine.

You can tell if its bad , it will turn yellow and not mix very good . If you have any doubt throw it our and buy a new bag. I keep my leftover in the freezer.

Thanks I mixed some it seems fine, started the calf with a new bag but wanted to use this one if I could, I'll just mix it in slowly and watch him, I think it will work.
