Specially formulated for use on newborn calves to assure adoption by natural or foster mothers. Has been field tested on cattle in Nebraska and Iowa.
Directions for use: Sprinkle a liberal amount of ORPHAN-NO-MORE™ down the backline from ears to tail head of the calf to be adopted. If the calf is dry, dampen the area before use to better assure adhesion. Whenever feasible confine mother (or foster mother) and calf in close quarters, preferable out of the wind, since odor plays an important role in calf adoption.
I had a cow in my own herd have her third calf this afternoon. I’ve always had problems with her wanting to push the calf away. Last year I brought them home and kept her tied up, eventually they went to a corral then back to pasture without problem. Tonight she wanted to recognize she had the calf, very vocal, but would push him away when he attempted to nurse. I had happened to buy a bottle of O-NO-MORE from Jeffers, I thought I’d try it to have on hand. I sprinkled it on his back and she immediately came over, started licking him and let him nurse. I can’t believe how well it worked.
