Management of calf diarrhoea


Diarrhoea in calves can occur due to various reasons. Calves with diarrhoea lose considerable amounts of water and electrolytes. Diarrhoea and rapid loss of fluid and ions can cause the calf to die very quickly.

Ensure that adequate quantities of colostrum has been fed to the calf within 6 hours of birth to avoid failure of transfer of immunity.
