Note, animals that are used to liquid supplements will adapt quicker to EziWean.  Feed EziWean immediately after separation from cows in addition to a normal diet. Some feed substitution will occur thereby adding the economic benefits of EziWean. Continue to feed EziWean for around 10 days including at least 3 days post-weaning on new feed. Supplying EziWean post transport is also advantageous.

Ensure plenty of fresh water. Water consumption may increase 2-fold.
