We’ve been asked what the dose rate is for Jersey calves from one of our farmer customers.

Great question!

The dose rate is 25g based on a Friesian calf, approx. 40kg.

Given jersey calves are smaller the dose rate could be reduced accordingly. Opticell is a fibre, therefore it’s not detrimental if dosed more or slightly less, so we recommend you trial it accordingly. Approx 20g for each jersey calf would work well also. But you’ll be the best judge being there to access on a day to day basis.
