I think the questioner just answered his own question! If he said the milk replacer formula is too rich, then he should dilute the replacer so that it's not so rich like he said.

Also don't feed so much otherwise he will go the opposite way and get scours.  Keep him hungry, because a hungry calf is a healthy calf.

I can answer most types of cattle questions, primarily beef types. Genetics, breeding, basic care, herd health and management, and showing. I'm knowledgeable in forages and feeding. Non emergency health and soundness questions. I am not a veterinary, and can't answer critical care questions. Call your local large animal vet for that service.


I've been a registered cattle breeder for over 20 years. My husband and I run a 250 acre cattle ranch in Texas. I've raised dairy cattle, commercial cattle, and registered and show cattle. I'm on our county Beef and Forage committee.
