It is formulated, using a blend of ingredients, for quick dispersion resulting in a milk replacer with a highly desirable texture and aroma to stimulate the young calf’s appetite. Optimum digestibility for the young calf is maintained whether the milk replacer is used in a computerized feeding or hand mixing system.
It is medicated with Deccox for Coccidiosis control in calves. Although no veterinarian script is required, please read the label for directions.

Manual Mixing Instructions
- First determine the number of litres of milk to be fed.
- Measure half of this volume as hot (47-60 degree) water.
- To determine the amount of powder use a scale and weigh 130g times the number of litres of milk to be fed. (eg. 15L of milk requires 15 x 130g which equals 2kg of powder.)
- Add this milk replacer to the hot water and mix until dissolved.
- Add remaining water to obtain desired volume aiming for a final drinking temperature of 40-44 C. Re-mix prior to feeding.
Computer Feeder Instructions
- Calibrate the computer to add 150g of milk replacer per litre of water dispensed.

I like to care for calves with consistency being the #1 principle. The same products, same routine, same standards for air, bedding, feed, etc. everyday. Mapleview Sure Start + Deccox fits that protocol because it is giving us consistent nutrients & quality in every bag. It mixes very well in our automatic feeder as well as individual bottles.

My calves have been doing great thanks to the Mapleview Sure Start with Deccox. It has great mixability, and my calves are growing fast! It has also been very effective at producing big heifers, and I’ve seen the average age of my heifers’ first calving drop as well!

In our 2 years of using Mapleview Sure Start + Deccox, we have seen significant positive changes in calf health, hardiness and gain. It mixes so well compared to other milk replacers, and the calves love the smell and taste. Mapleview customer service is excellent!

Mapleview Agri’s milk replacers mix exceptionally well, and the calves love the taste! They transition so easily onto the milk replacer within the first week. I have been very happy with the health and performance of our calves while feeding Sure Start + Deccox for the past 10 years!
